Advantages Of Reactive Maintenance
Lower original costs: You can save money on the upfront cost of a system.
No preparation required: Engineers repairs equipment when it fails. Although fails are unpredictable, no time is spent planning the repairs.
Disadvantages Of Reactive Maintenance
Shorter asset life expectancy:
Reactive maintenance does not keep systems running in optimal condition. In some cases, you are doing just enough to get a machine up and running repeatedly. A system that has been patched several times can deteriorate faster.
Inefficient use of time:
While planned maintenance can be included in a production schedule, reactive maintenance tends to catch you unexpectedly, and engineers spend time running around looking for the correct supplies, ordering the right parts as well as trying to diagnose and fix the issue.
Unforeseen interruption during production runs can result in late orders, damaging reputations and this can impact revenue. However, the unpredictable nature of reactive maintenance means that labour and spare parts may not be readily available, and you might end up paying alot for emergency parts shipping, travel time, as well as out of hours support.
Higher energy costs:
Once equipment is not correctly maintained, it uses extra energy. Simple things like greasing moving parts or changing filters can reduce energy consumption by 15%.
