Types of Maintenance.
Productive maintenance: focused on increasing the productivity of the company.
Preventive maintenance: it is the one indicated by the manufacturer for each machinery. It requires the performance of some activities with a certain frequency, such as filter and oil changes, greasing of machinery, etc. It is about repairing things before possible breakdowns occur.
Predictive maintenance: it is carried out based on the data that is collected by carrying out periodic analyzes and measurements. The manufacturer's recommendations are followed to schedule revisions, and they are adjusted to the actual performance of the machinery equipment and the organization of the work carried out by the operators.
