Preventive maintenance programs can reduce the likelihood of downtime and enable you to respond more quickly to problems. Consider these simple steps when establishing and running your program.
Adopt a plan. Detail the who, what, how and when for each aspect of maintenance—then obtain the commitment of management. It’s essential.
Perform the work. Emergency repairs usually take priority over preventive maintenance. This can snowball as emergencies reduce time for preventive work, which then leads to more emergency repairs. Break this cycle by sticking to your plan.
Collect data. Preventive maintenance programs are living documents. Use the data you collect to adjust the plan for changing information and conditions.
Inventory the parts required for maintenance. Keep renewable parts on hand to complete the repetitive tasks as scheduled by your plan.
