Cars break down if you don't maintain them!
If you have a car and you keep on using it without ever getting its check for maintenance chances are it will break down in the middle of the road and you will be in a bad situation.
In the same way, if we imagine that an organization is a car like in the example which has machinery and other assets which need to be managed but are constantly ignored by its employees and managers they chances are the assets will begin to depreciate at a startling rate leading to more breakdowns and delays in deliveries.
In a business environment it is not acceptable for any delays on deliveries as it leads to customers being dissatisfied and future orders being cancelled. In my opinion preventative and constant maintenance management is the best strategy to avoid any problems in performance.
