Comprehensive preventive maintenance does matter!
When mission critical equipment fails it’s often at the worst times, and results in unplanned costly repairs, or even full replacement.
More often than not the failures are due to poor maintenance practices. In some situations, the damage can be severe, and that can happen when the initial failed components are reliant on other parts in order to properly function. When one part fails it causes others to be adversely affected and fail as well. This leads to a much higher repair costs, and those are just the direct costs. A critical system failure usually also carries with it indirect costs, such as inconvenience to people, halted production, or entire business operations shut-down.
It isn’t until the failure has already occurred that it’s realized a simple tightening of a bolt, or greasing of a bearing; generally something simple that regular scheduled maintenance practices could have prevented. Without a quality preventive maintenance program in place, it’s not a matter of if there will be a costly failure, it’s when.
