Why is Maintenance management so useful?? I thought to myself? I first though so that machines can run efficiently and own town can be reduced. I thought thats about it.How can it help further I thought. Till I came across this fat book on maintenance management. It gave me a lot of benefits. The following it said in my words:
Firstly the cost advantages will show in the long run.
Secondly as I said reduced dowtime will not only ensure on time deliver but also reduce the no of machines we may use, which will reduce customer cost and make him happy
Thirdly if the factory is well maintained and managed then cost can be controlled in the factory. One may not see unforseen expenses
Fourthly Cost benefits will help us fight competition
Fifthly ones physical asset can last for longer time. Proper cleaning techniques and processes will help the asset to run well without the expensive breakdowns.
Sisthly better maintaince can help get a better name from the customer. On time deliveries, clean factories when customer visits will only help make us a sustainable supplier.
Seventhly there will safety for the workers. No health related issues coming up due to work atmosphere. No ones life is at risk.
Eightly it will create a better working environment and motivate people to come to work...
There are a lot of advantages for good maintence .I had not even tought of how customer perception can be changed or about the workers safety which is really important. Motivation for coming to work is important. I would not like to go to a dirty place and work and risk my health. Also if the company assets last for a longer time without breaking down then its always a benefit for the company.
