Effective Facility Maintenance

Maximising Productivity: The Benefits of Proactive Facility Maintenance for Large Companies

There is one way that you can guarantee a business will be successful and make profits; continuation and consistency. If a company has an interrupted workflow then this is going to have a knock on effect to the overall result and profits will be down. There are no two ways about it.

While there may be other factors that reduce productivity such as staffing issues and problems with suppliers, the day-to-day running of your equipment can also pose a risk to your workflow.

When there are technical issues within the facility, this can cause the workflow to come to an abrupt stop. This downtime could seriously impact the general running of the company and cut into its profits. For example, one of my first jobs after leaving school was in a food production factory where I was a quality supervisor. There were six production lines in total, each with a quota for the day and its own set of machinery and equipment.

When the machinery would malfunction, and that happened a lot, it would throw a spanner in the works for the whole factory, not just the production line that was experiencing technical difficulties. Because the factory quota every day had to be met by 3 pm in order to dispatch the food within its ‘best before’ period, any issues on one production line meant that other lines would have to take the workload. This wasn’t a simple process and meant at least half an hour of downtime while products were transferred between lines. Not to mention the lower employee morale as they would have to stay longer to complete the extra work. With the number of times this would happen, staff turnover became increasingly great.

So, it’s easy to see how the malfunction of just one piece of equipment can have a direct effect on the efficiency of the business as a whole.

With consistent planned maintenance, managers can rest assured that there will be as few surprises as possible and that productivity and workflow will not be interrupted.
