Preventive maintenance is increasingly used by companies, especially in the industrial sector. More efficient than curative or corrective maintenance, it offers many advantages to improve plant productivity by reducing the frequency and average time of production stops for maintenance activities.
Implementing a preventive maintenance plan extends the life of industrial equipment and improves productivity by reducing the probability of unexpected breakdowns, while facilitating the work of maintenance technicians. By anticipating the wear and tear of machines through the implementation of a schedule or the monitoring of their state of degradation, it helps avoid their immobilization during unforeseen incidents that are very damaging to the productivity of a plant.
This type of maintenance can also meet certain regulatory requirements or manufacturers’ recommendations applicable to a production tool. This is why preventive maintenance is becoming increasingly popular with companies, for example for the maintenance of hydraulic systems, medical devices or in the cosmetics sector.
Whether you choose a systematic or conditional preventive maintenance strategy, a next-gen CMMS is the most effective tool for managing the planning of teams and service providers, anticipating malfunctions and breakdowns, managing the fleet of machines and spare parts inventories, and offering better equipment availability.
