What is preventive maintenance and how to use it effectively?
Preventive maintenance (or preventative maintenance) is maintenance that is regularly and routinely performed on physical assets to reduce the chances of equipment failure and unplanned machine downtime that can be very costly for maintenance teams and facility managers. Effective preventive maintenance is planned and scheduled based on real-time data insights. A preventive maintenance task is performed while the equipment is still working to prevent unexpected break downs.
Types of preventive maintenance
There are three main types of preventive maintenance: Time, usage, and condition-based triggers. A variation of these types of preventive maintenance should ideally be scheduled and performed on all items of equipment to prevent unplanned failure. Manufacturers often provide recommendations on how to best maintain equipment.
