Have you ever got stuck in an elevator or have you ever taken the stairs to your floor because the elevator was not working? Well, this is just an example of mechanical engineering failing for want of regular servicing or maintenance. There could be more than one reasons why the elevator failed:
- The maintenance company was unable to service the lift when the dates were due.
- The maintenance contract had expired, and the service was stalled.
- There was no preventive maintenance done for that month.
- The building management did not pay the maintenance company in time.
Reasons could be many, but it all resulted in the inconvenience caused to the owners, tenants, and visitors. This could have been avoided if the AMC was managed well by the maintenance company or if they had bought our most popular AMC software well integrated in our business accounting software – Accounts ERP.
Preventive maintenance is maintenance that is regularly performed on a piece of equipment to lessen the likelihood of it failing. It is performed while the machine is still working so that it does not break down unexpectedly. Its purpose is to minimize breakdowns and excessive depreciation. It also give you an opportunity to interact with the customer while the equipment is working to his satisfaction and create the confidence that you will be available when he needs you.
Planning Preventive Maintenance Activities without a helpdesk module system can be a huge challenge for the companies operating in the sectors where the maintenance are to be carried out periodically and where the companies have to cater to large number of customers. Helpdesk also allows organizations to gather data surrounding preventive maintenance activities to report on or optimize those activities and set KPIs to work towards seamless service to the client.
Companies undertake preventive maintenance clause in their contracts for various reasons:
- To minimize the number of failures of valuable equipment.
- To increase the life span of the equipment or machine.
- To reduce the loss of production or stoppage of work from equipment failures.
- To promote better safety, health, and environmental conditions for our workforce.
- To reduce product rejects, rework, and scrap through better overall equipment condition.
Preventive maintenance applies to many sectors like IT hardware, Automobile, Telecommunication, Manufacturing, Air Conditioners, Elevators, pest-control, facility management and the manufacturing sectors in which their heavy-duty machines requires periodic maintenance.
