Managing a warehouse successfully takes a variety of factors into account – one of them being that you need to keep your facility in tip-top shape. If you don’t perform general and regular maintenance, you could experience equipment not functioning during daily operations or other disruptions in production. As a result, poor general maintenance will delay orders, add additional hours to projects, and potentially sabotage any goals at making profits.
At Rellius, we know that general maintenance is an integral component of a thriving business operation. Here are some ways that we can help ensure you are keeping up with the required maintenance tasks.
When it comes to general maintenance, putting a plan in place is always a wise idea. We help our clients develop maintenance plans so that they can foresee any potential challenges or disruptions. As the first part of maintenance planning, you’ll want to ensure all your equipment is operating correctly or determine when these items will need to be replaced or renewed. We can help you conduct this analysis if you are overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin.
Also, you’ll want to include in your plan to have the equipment continually monitored and serviced. Our maintenance plans include taking into account the following:
- Ensuring equipment downtimes do not impact regular operations
- If you have several pieces of vital equipment, you won’t want to schedule maintenance all at once, or else you will have issues with workflow
- Be sure to assign service times to separate equipment so that they do not occur at the same time.
You’ll also want to make sure you are tracking everything accurately. We can help you with carrying out inspections, creating and managing checklists for your equipment’s condition, as well as provide you with expert technicians.
If your warehouse holds a lot of equipment, we recommend a CMMS software (Computerized Maintenance Management System), which tracks maintenance information and availability of parts, statuses of machinery, generates reports, and more.
Other Ways to Increase Efficiency
Your employees are an excellent source of information since they work in these departments and with this equipment daily. Be sure to have a conversation with them regularly to discover any obstacles that could be occurring that could be getting in the way of production.
When you stay on top of monitoring your warehouse equipment, you will be able to prevent significant losses if there is an accident or an unforeseen circumstance. By working directly with your employees, you can avoid any impending disaster and ensure that your facility is as safe as possible.
