About Our Preventive Maintenance Services for Heavy-Duty Trucks & Equipment

What is preventive maintenance, & how does it cut unplanned downtime?

Preventive maintenance, also called PM, keeps equipment in top condition through regular machinery checkups and maintenance tasks. These services may be scheduled according to a calendar or based on equipment operating time. The process typically involve inspection, cleaning and oil and filter changes. A preventive maintenance program can reduce unplanned downtime by providing a framework to identify and address any needed repairs.

Why do you need a preventive maintenance plan?

Preventive maintenance is the practice of performing scheduled maintenance on critical components and systems to prevent failure and ensure continuous operation. Without a maintenance plan, unexpected failures can occur and machines can stop with little or no warning, disrupting production. 

A well-run maintenance program includes a schedule, a list of tasks and a plan to deal with each problem as it occurs. A well-run maintenance program also requires that technicians adhere to the plan, follow the schedule and report problems as they arise. Facilities with a preventive maintenance program may not be seeing expected benefits because the plan is not comprehensive enough or technicians do not follow the schedule.

Remember that regular oil and filter changes are good, but they won’t detect — or prevent — bigger issues.

Benefits of a preventive maintenance plans

An effective preventive maintenance plan extends mean-time-between-failures (MTBF), raises overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), increases capacity and allows production to meet its schedules. There’s less need for overtime, costs are controlled and stress levels are lowered. Morale improves when people can focus on business needs rather than fighting fires. Almost every operation has tried to implement a preventive maintenance program. The challenge is in making it stick.
