WHY IS IMPORTANT THE EVALUTATION OF “TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP” WHEN YOU BUY A MACHINE?
Productivity is a primary aspect for the well-being of a factory and whoever deals with cost management knows it very well.
When you estimate the “Total Cost of Ownership” (TCO) of your investment do not forget to include the cost of production downtime.
THE ICEBERG DILEMMA: WHAT’S UNDER WATER?
The costs associated to the purchase of new equipment are the basis of cost/benefit assessment of your business plan. Do not ignore to add hidden costs!
Once a new equipment is purchased the TCO does not depend only on its initial value.
You have to include all the entire lifetime costs of the unit: unplanned machine downtime, premature replacement of spare parts, emergency maintenance…
HOW DOES DOWNTIME MACHINE AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS?
Unscheduled stop determines considerable costs such as lack of production, staff inactive, delivery delay…all expensive costs for your business and your company’s image!
IS IT POSSIBLE TO PREVENT A MACHINE DOWNTIME?
Constant maintenance helps to avoid accidental machine downtime. Unfortunately, it is not enough!
A winning strategy takes care of a long-term investment: run into basic components is fundamental for a plant manufacturer for instance.
Investing in essential spare parts for the efficiency of your plant today means preventing a process interruption tomorrow!
