Business owners and managers shoulder the demanding responsibility of not just facilitating their employees’ success but also ensuring the ongoing viability of their equipment in production processes. This necessitates a robust maintenance strategy tailored to the unique needs of each organization. Frequently, businesses find themselves at a crossroads, deliberating between two distinct maintenance approaches, or sometimes a combination of both: preventive and predictive maintenance.

In the realm of preventive maintenance, a calendar-driven approach dictates scheduling maintenance for each piece of equipment at multiple intervals throughout the year, considering factors like run time and age. On the other hand, the more contemporary technique gaining traction is predictive maintenance, reliant on sophisticated technological systems. This approach offers a dynamic maintenance strategy by harnessing the interconnectedness of these systems to accurately time and conduct maintenance activities.

Choosing between these two strategies can pose a challenge for many organizations. While this post aims to provide valuable insights to aid in decision-making, the accompanying resource provides additional information regarding the suitability of each maintenance technology and approach across diverse industries and business sectors. Check out the resource to gain a deeper understanding of how these maintenance approaches and technologies can specifically benefit your organization.
