PPM Schedules

Planned Preventative Maintenance

Planned Preventative Maintenance, also commonly known as, scheduled maintenance, is a strategic process or routine to ensure that equipment is continuously looked after. Maintenance tasks are scheduled in, rather than reacting when something goes wrong.

This proactive strategy, when carried out successfully, will reduce the costs through planning; occupancy costs, expensive reactive and energy can all be reduced through this.

Service / Expertise

Generally, a reactive strategy is more costly and also stressful. In most commercial buildings, there is a need for regular maintenance on essential services, ranging from lighting to heating, to networks to CCTV and many more. If one of these services breaks down, it can become a very stressful and expensive experience.

In the short-term it may seem pricier to utilise a PPM schedule, however, in the long run this will save organisations money with this strategy due to equipment being in a well-maintained conditioning, and therefore fewer breakdowns and time taken to repair.

The main benefits of Planned Preventative Maintenance:

  • Reduce costs of maintenance
  • Longer life span of machinery, equipment and services
  • Improve efficiency within the business
  • Increased safety
  • Less reactive and unplanned maintenance or repairs
