Preventative maintenance (PM) is about mitigating your risk as an organisation, an unexpected breakdown can carry some serious consequences in terms of operational capacity, profitability and work place safety. Preventative maintenance is the practice of conducting routine maintenance on equipment in working order to reduce the probability of that equipment breaking down unexpectedly and thereby minimising losses to your organisation.
Conducting preventative maintenance helps you reduce all types of organisational losses including:
- Production losses
- Environmental losses
MEX as a CMMS is fully equipped to schedule, monitor and manage all maintenance carried out on your Assets. The Preventative Maintenance module schedules work orders to generate to either time, usage or condition based frequencies meaning you’re always trying to be one step ahead of a breakdown.
Watch MEX Creator Steve Ninnes explain why preventative maintenance is far more cost effective and efficient compared to reactive maintenance.
