A strong scheduled maintenance program can enable utilities companies to improve productivity and safety, increase asset life expectancy, and reduce costs. But many chief transformation officers (CTOs) find it difficult to successfully implement scheduled maintenance, as the process requires a fully optimized business operation.
Dealing with real-time changes to scheduled maintenance can be particularly challenging; and businesses that lack the proper tools and processes to handle these ever-changing factors struggle to keep up. Operational mistakes and inefficient scheduling practices make it nearly impossible to reap the potential benefits of scheduled maintenance and lead to significant business consequences, too—like excess costs, unnecessary downtime, and increased safety risks.
To get it right, CTOs should leverage technology and processes that help them optimize scheduled maintenance across all locations, despite their scheduling complexities, multi-layered workflows, and evolving business priorities; all while remaining flexible enough to meet the unique needs of their organization.
