Poor maintenance strategies can reduce a plant’s overall productive capacity by 5 to 20 percent. Relying on a reactive approach can result in unplanned shutdowns and potential safety incidents, all of which negatively impact the bottom line. Increased maintenance costs, shorter asset lifespans, additional safety issues, and inefficient practices are all the norm with this approach.
A study into the causes of unscheduled downtime found aging process equipment was the leading contributor. To address this problem, organizations need to streamline processes, reduce redundant efforts, and digitize where possible to optimize maintenance and operations.
