Proactive vs. Reactive Maintenance

A thoughtful, planned maintenance program requires a solid blueprint. Park has created these detailed machine maintenance blueprints that allow you to reduce costly, unplanned downtime while eliminating the temptation to fall back into a reactive approach.

Maintenance Personnel Vs. Unplanned Downtime
To successfully managing a robust maintenance program, it is important that you have designated employee(s) that have been properly trained on how to maintain and protect your machines.
Understand and outline the specific skill sets that are needed to maintain your machines, and hire a person with those specific skills.

Maintenance Employee Costs
|Unplanned Downtime Cost Breakdown||Cost|
|2 days (16hrs) @ $1,500/hr||$24,000|
|4 days (32hrs) @ $1,500/hr||$48,000|
|6 days (48hrs) @ $1,500/hr||$72,000|
