The military initially pioneered preventive maintenance as a means to
increase the reliability of their naval vessels. By simply expending
the necessary resources to conduct maintenance activities intended by
the equipment designer, equipment life is extended and its reliability
is increased. In addition to an increase in reliability, more money is
saved in comparison to the cost of a program just using reactive
maintenance. Studies indicate that this savings can amount to as much as
12% to 18% on the average. Depending on a facility's current
maintenance practices, present equipment reliability, and facility
downtime, there is little doubt that many facilities are purely reliant
on reactive maintenance. By implementing a proper preventative
maintenance program, they could save much more than 18%.
