It’s Time for Maintenance 2.0
The current unsettled state of the global economy has placed manufacturers under extreme competitive and financial pressure. While this situation has affected all operational areas, maintenance has been particularly challenged. While many maintenance budgets have faced cuts, the importance of efficiently maintaining and utilizing aging equipment - specifically, maximizing uptime to meet production demands without increasing costs - remains a principal driver. Balancing cost, labor and equipment performance has therefore become increasingly important as capital investments are deferred.
This paper details why legacy maintenance systems, or ERP systems alone, are failing to help manufacturers meet the current challenges facing their maintenance operations. A new “Maintenance 2.0” approach that extends ERP plant maintenance without overlapping and duplicating functionality, and that coordinates maintenance with operations will lead to increased equipment uptime, improved compliance and lower manufacturing costs.
