Having a well-designed and structured maintenance plan for your industrial plant can, in the short and long term, avoid many problems. A machine stop, short circuits and even more general issues, which can completely stop production, can be minimized.

What Is A Maintenance Plan
When we talk about a maintenance plan, the most common is that this maintenance is preventive or predictive . It is a planning of the various activities that will be aimed, mainly, to reduce possible failures in production and in the machines of the industrial plant.
Items such as inspections, retightening, replacement of parts, cleaning and finer adjustments are included in the document and all of its performance must be recorded in detail, including inserting any and all parts that are used or removed during the processes. It is also important to explain which equipment has undergone maintenance and where it is located on the factory floor.
Basically, it is like a script that dictates in an orderly and faithful way what has been and what will be accomplished in terms of industrial maintenance in a certain period of time. This allows, in the future, certain decisions to be made in a timely and more accurate manner, avoiding the need for an emergency repair (unplanned corrective maintenance).
How To Develop A Maintenance Plan
Creating a plan that works for your industry is not exactly a difficult task. However, it must be done with extreme care so that nothing is forgotten or overlooked due to haste or lack of refinement in actions. What really matters in the plan are the information, among which must be:
- when, how and what services will be performed;
- who will be responsible for execution – with details such as name, function, company, position, etc.);
- the time allocated to each stage;
- both material and service costs for each unit and also total;
- materials applied to work;
- resources or tools that will be used in the factory assembly line.
