Today many businesses are recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters, and other catastrophes. Supply chain disruptions have made us more aware of our dependencies and the things that we don’t even think about because everything is operating so efficiently. Businesses are looking at their processes and what can be done so that they are more prepared for any disaster or disruption that could have an impact on their business operations.
Supply chains are the core of their business; any disruption in their operations can have a major impact on production and delivery processes. It is a fact that maintenance has a major impact on business operations, and they can’t afford to have equipment break down and sit around and wait for parts that may or may not arrive for days or weeks. When production stops and distribution of products get delayed, maintenance teams are scrambling for spare parts, a specialized vendor, or other tasks, to get things fixed and production back up running quickly. This is costing time, money, unhappy customers, and your business.
