Preventive maintenance takes place before an asset or piece of equipment breaks down. It can be either a time-based or meter count based approach carried out at predetermined intervals to reduce the risk of failures and poor performance. A preventive maintenance strategy is employed by organizations to minimize unplanned downtime and reduce repair costs.
