When repairs are scheduled, the amount of time needed for repair is reduced because of a smaller number of component replacements instead of entire equipment replacement. Also, the frequency of repair for critical failure of equipment will be reduced and the amount of “critical callouts” will be greatly reduced.
Instead of replacement of the entire piece of equipment due to critical failure, a repair is made prior to failure and cost is minimized to the price of the component and the labor needed for the repair. Well performing assets are also more efficient and save energy costs.
A proactive maintenance department can head off critical failure downtime by scheduling repair during non-productive times. - By identifying the precise repair task needed to correct deficiencies, as well as the parts, tools and support needed to correct the problem can dramatically increase effective "wrench time."
