The first question you should ask yourself is: How does your organization approach facility management? There are two options – reactive and planned. Below we present the differences between the mentioned options that need to be distinguished and adequately approached.
Reactive maintenance of facilities
Reactive maintenance of facilities refers to repairing a specific part of the property when a failure has occurred. This implies a timely reaction and contacting experts to prevent a significant malfunction or accident.
A failure will attract the facility’s manager’s attention that needs to be repaired. For a successful long-term business, it is necessary to turn to planned maintenance of facilities.
Planned maintenance of facilities
Planned maintenance of facilities focuses on avoiding repairs or on their prevention. This implies regular inspection of the object and all its components – from the external parts to the internal ones. Planned maintenance includes organized execution of work duties, functional equipment and other components, upgrading and improvement, and detailed reporting.
Problems can be predicted with regular maintenance, which brings numerous benefits, such as:
- extending the life of the facility
- saving energy and resources
- higher productivity
- reducing the possibility of unplanned downtime.
