Downtime can be disastrous to production. If equipment is not available, production stops, but labor and overhead costs continue to accrue. Emergency repairs and part shipments are quite costly. Meanwhile, bottlenecks occur, resulting in delays that may reduce demand and even destroy credibility. When used properly, Maximo can help you to identify maintenance needs before they become critical, allowing you to schedule repairs during lower-utilization periods, significantly reducing costs and stress. Maven can help you make the most of these tools to improve your manufacturing process.
