Industrial maintenance, also called plant maintenance, is the process of implementing processes to reduce breakdowns, increase uptime, and promote overall reliability.
In other words, maintenance is the general process of ensuring that assets are kept in good working condition.
When a piece of equipment keeps running at its expected capacity, production operations are likewise sustained.
Having a maintenance plan reduces maintenance costs, maximizes uptime potential, and ultimately increases profitability.
Relying on a third-party service contractor to repair failed components after the fact is not a sustainable maintenance plan.
In addition to the high servicing costs with third-party contractors, this approach puts you at a higher risk of unscheduled downtime from a sudden, unexpected failure.
A proper maintenance plan can identify maintenance tasks that prevent failures in the first place, saving your company more in the long term.
