In order to be successful over a long period of time and to wring every ounce of production out of machinery and equipment, manufacturing plants must continually work to maintain their facilities. That’s one of many reasons why plant maintenance is so crucial.
Unlike a plant turnaround (often referred to as a shutdown or outage), during which the entire plant or portions of it are upgraded, plant maintenance involves tasks such as repairing major pieces of equipment so they remain operational, thereby preventing downtime in production schedules.
A properly designed and implemented plant maintenance schedule will keep your facility running at peak efficiency and will head off any problems before they occur. As we all know, when unforeseen problems arise, they can put a major crimp in production, costing owners time and money. There may even be insurance benefits that accrue due to your adherence to industry requirements.
Plant maintenance is the key to efficiency.
Mechanical or failures can occur now and again in complex systems, such as manufacturing. A proper regimen of plant maintenance includes but is not limited to:
- Making building repairs as soon as they are spotted
- Replacing lost parts
- Cleaning machinery
- Scheduling inspections and repairs
- Continual training for employees
- Periodic testing of equipment
