The Value of Maintenance Engineering

January 1970

The internationally competitive nature of the manufacturing and production industry today requires more production for less costs. Breakdowns are a double hit on costs as they not only stop production but generally cost a lot more to repair than planned maintenance. Avoiding unplanned equipment breakdowns is critical to the long term survival of any business and a significant contributor to improving a companies bottom line.

Identifying the significant failure risks or root causes enables them to be removed or mitigated and is fundamental to ensuring equipment reliability. Mainstream Engineering is experienced in cost effective inspections, failure analysis and troubleshooting of manufacturing equipment. We recognize industry has to work with ever decreasing maintenance budgets. Therefore the importance of an efficient inspection and/or equipment condition assessment plan to identify targeted condition based maintenance is paramount.

Mainstream Engineering develops life cycle equipment maintenance strategies that enable more accurate and defined maintenance budget development to allow effective cost control.
