How do you like your maintenance? Preventive or corrective. The good old saying ‘prevention is better than cure’ holds good even in the context of equipment maintenance. If your equipment rental enterprise's revenue depends on the functionality of your equipment, you would want your asset break downs to be minimal. Preventive maintenance ensures that.

Reduce repair expenses with preventive maintenance

Preventive maintenance entails the upkeep of the equipment even before it breaks down or malfunctions. Apart from hindering the production cycle, an asset breakdown also increases expenditures caused by repairs. To avoid monetary and time loss, businesses are actively prioritizing preventive maintenance. Maintenance cycles can be set up for preventive maintenance based on certain variables like mileage, working hours, time, etc. These preset cycles also help mechanics prepare for all future inspections in time.

How to set up maintenance cycles?

DynaRent, an equipment rental software, supports your company’s preventive maintenance efficiently. As a part of it, it enables setting up product or asset level maintenance plans. Additionally, this solution allows you to define product-based maintenance cycles. For instance, if you are aware of the supplier cycles upfront, you inherit them to related assets. Also, as a mileage-based maintenance cycle wouldn’t work without an appropriate meter, you can apply the same process to meters to all the associated assets.

Well, at this point, you must be asking — Can you only select one meter per asset? No, DynaRent solution allows you to choose multiple meters per asset. This feature supports the seamless execution of various plans simultaneously. Furthermore, you can set up a maintenance plan for each component that’s a part of asset structures. For example, you can set up separate cycles for the upper and lower engines of the same crane.

Once you schedule a work order in DynaRent’s integrated Service Planboard, the solution would automatically trigger a work order when a threshold or a set interval is reached. 

Though maintenance is complicated in the rental sector, DynaRent can help you overcome the roadblocks of the process. This solution minimizes manual work and uses a combination of your inputs and data inheritance to support preventive maintenance efforts.

Despite all these measures, you might still face delays in maintenance due to other reasons. The delayed maintenance feature in DynaRent can help you combine incomplete work orders into new counterparts to make sure the assets get efficient and timely maintenance.

Preventive maintenance is crucial to the stable functioning of the most vital assets of a rental business. Investing in DynaRent can help you streamline the maintenance process and schedule the repairs with minimal human intervention. The smart tools and features included in the solution will help you improve the efficiency of the maintenance schedule. Also, it enables you to optimize other critical aspects like forecasting for spare parts demand and availability.
