Maintenance & servicing

Manufacturing and production

In the ever-changing world of manufacturing and production, regular maintenance and servicing of plant and machinery has become a crucial part of keeping factories running smoothly. In this article, we explore the reasons why maintenance and repair is becoming increasingly important in factories and how it helps to increase productivity, minimize downtime and improve overall efficiency.

tl;dr In modern factories, regular maintenance and servicing is crucial to optimize uptime, extend equipment life, ensure quality and safety, reduce costs and ensure compliance with regulations. Through early inspections and maintenance, potential problems can be identified and rectified before they lead to major breakdowns. Ultimately, a well-planned maintenance strategy contributes significantly to the efficiency and competitiveness of factories. Investing in this area is therefore not only a necessary measure, but also a strategic decision for long-term success and sustainable growth.

Regular maintenance and servicing

Why has it become more important?
  1. Optimizing uptime: In a high-tech production environment, machines and systems rely heavily on each other. Through regular maintenance and repair, potential failures can be detected and rectified at an early stage before they lead to longer operational interruptions. Reducing downtime is crucial to maintaining continuous production and meeting delivery commitments to customers.

  2. Extending the service life of equipment: Well-planned and executed maintenance and repairs help to slow down the wear and tear of machines and extend their service life. This reduces the need for expensive new purchases and investments in the long term. By investing in maintenance, factories can use their equipment more efficiently and maximize the return on their investment.

  3. Ensuring quality and safety: Regular inspections and maintenance work help to maintain the quality of the manufactured products while ensuring the safety of employees. By identifying defects at an early stage, potential hazards can be minimized. This is particularly important in industries where high-quality products and strict safety standards are required, such as the food or pharmaceutical industries.

  4. Cost savings: Although regular maintenance and repair comes at an initial cost, the long-term savings can be significant. By avoiding unplanned downtime, expensive repairs and production interruptions, factories can reduce their overall costs and strengthen their competitiveness. Investing in preventive maintenance often pays off in improved efficiency and profitability.

  5. Compliance with regulations and standards: In many industries, factories are subject to strict regulations and quality standards. Regular maintenance is often a prerequisite for complying with these standards and avoiding possible sanctions or legal consequences. By complying with regulations, factories can also improve their image and reputation and strengthen the trust of their customers and stakeholders.

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)

Our tetys solution

Our TPM module simplifies recurring maintenance, servicing and testing activities with a touch-optimized web interface and its intuitive, calendar-like planning interface. Automatically updated appointments show their status color-coded - from "scheduled" to "missed".

Flexible customization for different application areas and the assignment of activities to machines, tools or articles are possible.

Users can create recurring appointments for specific test objects and receive feedback for completed activities.

The system supports various reports such as "Completion", "Compliance" and "Detailed report" for evaluating maintenance activities. In addition, specific system roles are available for different user groups, ranging from inspection to full data view.
