Maintenance Management - why is it so quiet?

You're on a site visit, but it's strangely quiet? Your Site Manager, an Engineer and the Driver are huddled around one of your expensive machines. You go to investigate...

The Engineer and the Driver are pouring through drawings and bills of material, under the watchful and impatient eye of the Site Manager, until the cause is discovered. The problem turns out to be a bearing failure. When was the last time this machine was serviced, you ask?

You do not have a spare bearing in stock, so you have to order a new one, from overseas. The rush order, plus next day air, plus overtime to get the part installed right now, increases the Purchasing and Installation cost to hundreds of dollars. Oh right, we haven't included the fact that now your equipment has not been running for 2 or 3 days (assuming the part was available immediately) - which increases your total cost significantly.

Preventive Maintenance is just that - a maintenance plan to prevent breakdowns. With preventive maintenance software the errant bearing would have regularly received its lubrication. Fifteen minutes and 50c of grease could have saved your company a fortune!
