Planned Maintenance Schedules

Planned Maintenance Schedules


Planned Maintenance Schedules are systematic and proactive strategies employed by property owners, facility managers, or maintenance teams to ensure the ongoing upkeep and optimal performance of buildings, equipment, or infrastructure. These schedules outline a predetermined timeline for conducting routine inspections, servicing, and repairs on various components within a facility.

Typically, planned maintenance schedules are tailored to the specific needs and requirements of the assets being managed. They may encompass a wide range of tasks, including but not limited to:

  1. Regular inspections to identify any signs of wear, damage, or deterioration.
  2. Preventive maintenance activities such as lubrication, cleaning, and adjustments to extend the lifespan of equipment and systems.
  3. Replacement of worn-out or obsolete elements before they fail and cause more serious costly defects.


The benefits of undertaking planned maintenance

  1. Minimised downtime and disruptions: By addressing potential issues proactively, planned maintenance schedules help prevent unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs, thereby minimizing disruptions to operations.
  2. Enhanced safety and compliance: Routine inspections and servicing help identify and address safety hazards and ensure that the facility complies with relevant regulations and standards.
  3. Extended asset lifespan: Proper maintenance can prolong the lifespan of assets, reducing the need for premature replacements and saving on capital expenses.
  4. Cost savings: While there are upfront costs associated with planned maintenance, the long-term savings in terms of reduced repair costs, energy efficiency, and asset longevity outweigh the initial investment.
