What is Planned Maintenance?
Let’s use your car as an example.
With planned maintenance, most people change the oil on their car every 3 months or 3,000 miles. You know the cost will be around $24.99 + tax and you do this quarterly. The maintenance cost is anticipated, the work is scheduled before mechanical failure, and you learn about any additional adjustments that may need to be made including filters, belts and diagnostics.
Without planned maintenance, you drive your car and do not change the oil. Assuming the car has not broken down on the side of the road, the check engine light comes on and you bring the car to the local mechanic. You don't know what’s wrong with the car, you have saved $100/year on not having planned maintenance, however you come to find out that you blew the engine and you may need a new one. Estimated cost $1,600 and you will be without a car for 4 days. T & M is the approach in this situation, and what could have been prevented, wasn't, due to the lack of regular visibility and maintenance to the machine.
