What is maintenance?
Maintenance refers to the process of inspecting, troubleshooting, and restoring equipment or machinery to its optimal operating condition. Maintenance is an important part of keeping equipment and tools in good working order and preventing future problems from arising.
Preventive, Reactive and Predictive Maintenance
Preventive maintenance is performed regularly to reduce the chance of a breakdown; reactive maintenance, which is done when a problem arises; and predictive maintenance, which uses sensors and data analysis to monitor for potential issues before they become serious.
Benefits of Maintenance
Maintenance can help reduce downtime, prolong the life of equipment, tools, and other things, improve safety for everyone involved, save money on repairs and replacements, and ensure that all systems are running at peak performance levels. Additionally, having a well-maintained environment can help with compliance standards in certain industries.
