MRO: OPINION: Maintenance is all-encompassing
by Mario Cywinski
Condition-based maintenance was seen as the most important at 37 per cent.
Recently, Maintenance and Equipment MRO conducted a poll on our LinkedIn company page, asking: “What is the most important aspect of your maintenance program?”
Condition-based maintenance was seen as the most important at 37 per cent, with preventive maintenance next at 36 per cent, predictive maintenance at 25 per cent and other at one per cent. While the comments section of the poll pointed out other methods that are used, such as proactive, and corrective/reactive maintenance, as well as those who mentioned all are equally important.
With the poll being so close, and comments outlining other methods, what this illustrates is maintenance programs are an all-encompassing job, and neither one aspect overrides the need for the rest.
