Industrial Maintenance Is Not A Spectator Sport

As an industrial maintenance professional, when equipment fails; you are the person everyone relies on to get things running again. And you can expect to hear, “This will not take long to fix, right?”

When equipment breaks down and you are able to get things working again quickly, you are a hero.

When it doesn’t work, you are the one who catches hell. If there is anyone standing around, it will be the supervisor asking, “When will you get the line running again?” And the stress continues to build…

The more desperate the situation, the more hopeful management becomes.

Frequently this leads directly to the deadly Patch and Pray method of maintenance. You patch it up with duct tape and baling wire, and pray it survives to the end of next week.

This is no way to operate a maintenance department.

You need materials you can depend on to fit and perform as promised. Period.

I will never forget the reaction from an existing customer in a meeting to finalize the details in ordering a new component from us for the first time.

The Maintenance Planner exploded, “….and we are tired of vendors sending us new parts that don’t fit! Too often our guys have to repair something we just bought, just to make it work! When we buy it, we expect it to fit!”

I agreed. You should NEVER have to ‘fix’ a replacement component before you can use it. In industrial applications capital purchases are typically installed during a planned maintenance shutdown.
The reality is most manufacturing applications wear out steel. You need your wear plate to last long enough so it doesn’t cause any unexpected failures between your planned maintenance shut downs.

Yet most wear resistant steel vendors accept zero accountability for improving their customer’s performance.
