CIMdata in the News: Profiting From Proactive Maintenance
In the article "Profiting From Proactive Maintenance", John Teresko of IndustryWeek addresses the expanded role of proactive maintenance noting that: "In addition to safeguarding production schedules, proactive maintenance adds new efficiencies and revenue potential, too"
Both trends are reshaping and enlarging the significance of maintenance to manufacturers, says Ed Miller, president of industry analyst firm CIMdata. Both trends also have dramatic potential. Consider, for example, that at a plant level, maintenance is already considered among the largest controllable costs for many companies, says Miller.
He says the switch to proactive programs will deliver more cost benefits than past journeys from "breakdown" to preventive/predictive strategies. One estimate: Proactive maintenance strategies can yield more than a ten-fold savings over predictive/preventive programs.
