3 004 POTENTIAL 005 Maintenance is key to long-term success Maintenance is more than just a cost to production. It provides the foundation for a business s performance and profitability, affecting everything from safety to plant productivity and energy efficiency. From designing a new plant, to getting it running and keeping it running optimally, having the right approach to maintenance makes a real difference in both the short and long-term. However, the full potential of maintenance is rarely realized. WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY At our greenfield site we had the opportunity to consider maintenance management from the start. Quant helped us get it right from the beginning and ultimately run a much more efficient operation. When working with new customers we often find: the total cost of maintenance is not under full control; spare parts and subcontracting costs constantly exceed budgeted levels; the impact of maintenance on the equipment life cycle cannot be quantified; maintenance is conducted in isolation of productivity improvements; and the cost of unplanned shut downs is greater that the total planned maintenance budget. In a world where increasing regulation, competition and costs put pressure on our customers businesses, we constantly ask: Where can maintenance have the greatest impact; how can it contribute to a more prosperous future for our customers, in both the short and long-term?
