How Preventive Maintenance Revamps the Maintenance Requisites
Maintenance is an imperative aspect of asset sustainability especially when it comes to the manufacturing industry. When there is an involvement of machinery and equipment handling, maintenance is without a doubt a top priority. But conducting maintenance requires a lot of streamlining and planning which demands the reliability of a plant maintenance solution.
SAP Plant Maintenance
SAP has designed a complete package for maintaining your asset needs with complete ease. It involves the digitization of maintenance workflow to create a simplified work environment. The mobile app for SAP Plant Maintenance allows organizations to be quick and alert in their maintenance decisions.
Plant Maintenance 360 is a custom-built SAP mobile application that is very easy to use, access, and retrieve maintenance information. It includes enhanced features such as notifications, work orders, reports, offline functionalities, master data, time entry, purchase requisitions, purchase orders, and goods receipts.
PM 360 executes maintenance activities by leveraging intelligent technologies including IoT, Barcode Scanner, Chatbots, and GIS integrations to carry out maintenance tasks not just quickly but also in a precautionary approach.
What is Preventive Maintenance?
Preventive maintenance helps to prevent damages that could occur due to continuous usage of machinery and other possible errors beforehand. It is routine maintenance for assets to keep them running and avoid any unexpected downtimes throughout its operating period.
The preventive maintenance process for plant equipment or machinery involves activities such as lubrication, oil changing, inspecting, replacing spare parts after a specific period, and other adjustments. It helps to set priorities, define, and manage them.
Preventive Maintenance vs Predictive Maintenance
Both types of maintenance are done to avoid possible futuristic damage to assets. Preventive maintenance as mentioned earlier in this blog is routine maintenance that is done periodically during any state of operation while predictive maintenance is prioritized if necessary while the machinery is running.
Predictive maintenance is a more cost-effective approach by reducing labor and material costs as it is only performed when necessary.
Business merits of adopting Predictive Maintenance with PM 360
- Predictive Maintenance helps to avoid disruptions and interruptions during critical uptime.
- Improves the safety of the workplace by attending to necessary maintenances in prior to occurrence.
- Increases the life of the assets by maintaining and tuning them at perfect conditions.
- Reduces the downtime of assets caused by damages.
- Improved efficiency of the assets because of periodic maintenance.
Maximize your plant maintenance with SAP through a predictive maintenance process for increased uptime and plant efficacy.
