Blog > Automation > 7 Benefits of Predictive Maintenance with the Rexel Support Agreement
2/2/24 | Kim Goodwin, Director of Customer Success and Life Cycle Services
Unforeseen equipment failures are much more than an inconvenience or annoyance – they’re profit-sapping problems that erode customer trust, disrupt your operations, and can frustrate your teams, especially when they keep happening. However, with data-driven predictive maintenance, you can gain insights and see the future of your factory, anticipating equipment needs and repairs before breakdowns happen.
According to a study by Endeavor Business Intelligence on behalf of Panduit and The Journal From Rockwell Automation and Our PartnerNetwork™ magazine found that the cost of unplanned downtime can cost industrial manufacturers anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000+ per hour. That’s a lot of money you can’t afford to lose.
Pro Tip: Predictive maintenance is built into the packages of the Rexel Support Agreement (RSA).
First, let’s look at the definition of predictive maintenance
Predictive maintenance is the ability to predict equipment failures before they happen, allowing you to transition from reactive to proactive fixes. This is done with the power of data, sensors, and intelligent algorithms to monitor equipment performance, analyze data for patterns, predict potential failures, and schedule proactive maintenance.
As an industrial manufacturer, this allows you to gain control over your operations and build a resilient future largely devoid of sudden breakdowns so you can improve your operations, reduce costs, and gain a competitive edge.
Predictive maintenance is a built-in feature of the RSA packages. Here are 7 ways it can transform your operations.
The RSA is a valuable partnership and resource to help you improve efficiency, boost productivity, and save your money. By combining a range of capabilities into one contract, it’s easier to get the support you need to stay competitive. Contact us today to learn more about how the RSA can help your business.
