Every piece of equipment, device or asset undergoes constant wear and tear making them vulnerable to failure and reduced operational efficiency. Computerized maintenance management system’s (CMMS) inbuilt feature of Preventive Maintenance is a one stop solution to such unforeseen events. Preventive maintenance will not only reduce unplanned downtime and also increase the life span of your assets.
Preventive maintenance, also commonly termed as proactive maintenance, is designed to perform checks at regular intervals for signals of device failure that may lead to complete breakdown. PM comes as the handiest solution for the ever rising maintenance cost. It is always wise to invest in a timely maintenance program to ensure best performance rather than to repeatedly suffer from machine breakdown or decreased productivity.
Preventive maintenance can be broadly classified into two types:

In this case, the usage parameter could be Km travels, like “After every 500 Km” maintenance requests will trigger.
Here are the approaches that needs for a successful implementation of PM and they are:
Inspection: Timely inspection of devices and equipment will ensure whether they are safe for usage to avoid workplace injuries
Detection: Quick detection of faults with machines will ensure easy and inexpensive fixes
Correction: With a proactive approach, the managers can better handle crisis and correct problems even before they occur. This is an efficient way of handling operational shutdowns
Prevention: Correlating inspection notes and maintenance records will give a clear picture of asset maintenance history and proactively plan maintenance as required
An effective preventive maintenance plan can be defined based on the historical information of maintenance issues, the problems identified, root causes and solutions over a period of time.
