Spending money upfront can be a hard sell in the world of manufacturing and distribution. We understand, especially when the bulk of the business you generate already requires upfront costs. However, preventative maintenance is a bill that you should always be ready to foot. Implementing a work order management system can help keep your business ahead of any potential problems.

The Effects of Poorly Maintained Equipment

It is no surprise that poorly maintained equipment can lead to many problems. The most noticeable issue is increased downtime on production lines. If one component of a production line fails, the entire line may shut down for repair. The result is an immediate loss of revenue. In some circumstances, you may suffer a loss in assets or supplies or even a reduction in quality. For instance, if you are unaware that a piece of equipment is slightly off specification then labels may be misaligned, pieces may not fit properly, the glue may drip, etc.

Even more concerning, if a system is malfunctioning and you don’t have a work management system that can properly alert you to the situation, then safety issues may arise. Things like excessive heat generation, failures that lead to a spill, or fires are all potential issues. However, you can avoid problems by using an effective work order management system. Feel confident in knowing it can detect when an issue may be arising so you can troubleshoot immediately.
