Routine maintenance or a one-off repair, outside of the management strategy already outlined, can prove to be a real obstacle to productive efficiency.

With this in mind, we have put together some tips to help you reduce your maintenance costs without compromising your workflow. Understand how simple initiatives can reflect positively on operational costs and optimize the company’s technical performance.

Map maintenance processes and history

Tracing maintenance costs may at first seem like a simple task. However, the reality is that even companies with a lean structure can count on complexity in this regard. The lack of an organized process and important data, such as time of service and tools, makes this activity difficult.

For this reason, mapping processes and the history of maintenance carried out goes beyond an organizational need. By having this information consolidated and centralized, management can invest resources in a more strategic way, preventing unscheduled downtime and controlling service values more precisely.

Maintain a periodic maintenance plan

Mapping only the previous maintenance processes and history is only part of the job. To really boost your results, try to periodically feed your planning into each new service order. In this way, you can schedule maintenance in a more planned way.

Still, besides a programmed management, keeping the periodicity in its maintenance allows to speed up procedures. Emergency plans or parts and tools inventory, for example, can already be made and purchased in advance, reducing costs related to the supply of emergency demands, which do not allow the best negotiation and conditions to be reached.

Incorporate Industry 4.0 solutions into processes

Nowadays, maintenance costs can be lower when you use technology in favor of your business operations. Cloud computing services, for example, can centralize the organization of your data and allow access from any device connected to the internet.

With the practicality and low cost, security is also improved. The maintenance routine becomes efficient and possible frauds can be easily prevented by management, which further optimizes savings with unforeseen costs and unscheduled downtime.
