THE VALUE OF UNEQUAL DOLLARS IN THE RESULTS ECONOMYJADCO • Rich F.
Most people look at their Maintenance Budget as if every “paper bill” has the same value. That is not the case.
The money you spend to repair or rebuild your industrial equipment does not have the same value.
“While the paper and ink are virtually the same, the value of the right bill is 100 times greater than the bill on the left. This tiny difference in the details, makes all the difference in the value you receive.“
Everyone can remember a time when they bought something and quickly realized they didn’t get the results they thought they would receive. Once the anger subsides, they desperately wish they had the opportunity for a ‘do-over’.
if this happened to you, the bottom line is…you didn’t get the results you had hoped for, from the money you spent. By spending smarter, make certain you actually do receive the benefits of your investment. You no longer should be simply buying the same old replacement parts. We are now living in the RESULTS ECONOMY. YOU NEED TO BUY SMARTER.
Business As Usual No Longer Exists:
Here are a few common scenarios that happen in a lot of organizations:
- Maintenance budgets have been trimmed to where they no longer include what you would like. Now it often may not contain all the necessities for your project.
- With less available labor, fewer people are doing more jobs – in less time. No wonder everyone is stressed on the job.
- When experienced workers retire or leave, they are not replaced. As yet, we cannot download everything they knew about the equipment. Their knowledge is now gone forever.
- In wear applications, many people simply throw another patch on a problem to keep things running.
“This is what we have always done”; it no longer applies if you are expecting the company and/or your position to survive another year.
If you have used the same abrasion-resistant steel from the same vendor for years or even decades; ask yourself, “Has my vendor recently brought up any new wear-resistant steel advancements to make my problem applications achieve longer life?”
If not, maybe you need to rethink your strategy and find a new vendor.
You Don’t Know, What You Don’t Know
It is possible you don’t know what recent developments are available today. A newer product development may be exactly what you need to control your biggest maintenance headache.
Are you so busy fighting fires every day that you don’t take time to be thoughtful about any of the dozen little things which added together, can make all the difference for your business? Critical decisions often do not require much time to identify the proper direction. Strategic small decisions can deliver tremendous impact now and for many years to come.
The Benefit of Future Planning
If you are like most managers, you seldom think about your wear-resistant steel until it fails. Then you are thrown into reaction mode, head first, to fix it NOW. Reviewing your prior results or considering which new options you may be evaluating ‘next time’; doesn’t occur at a time like this.
Instead, most people rush to try and find out what did they use and who did we buy it last time? Rushing around we yell, “Get another one in here quick!”
You will never defeat the cycle of mediocrity with this thinking.
Buying ‘average’ wear plate and hoping for average results is a serious waste of your limited resources.
