Reactive maintenance is also known as breakdown maintenance.

In simple words, it is a process to react to the failed, damaged or any ineffective equipment and repairing them so as to achieve the intended function. These are the repairs done when the equipment are not available or they are broken down.

Reactive maintenance aims at restoring the normal conditions of operation. The broken parts or components are returned and then they are repaired or replaced with new components and parts. The reactive maintenance ignores the preventive measures that are required to be taken care of while dealing with issues.

This is a day to day work is often minor regarding values. It may involve leaking tap, repairing a broken glass pane or unblocking a drain. But this work is expensive for the issues that are more serious like Boiler breakdowns, storm damage, flood or any unsafe asbestos. The work may be a minor issue or major issue but requires an immediate attention and a degree of urgency and this is where Pristine Build come in!

Managing and coordinating with the Pristine Build reactive maintenance service team for some property that includes all from one to thousands of sites across the globe may throw up some significant challenges.

A well mannered and planned reactive maintenance starts by gaining a through and deep understanding on the exact or accurate requirements. The requirement includes the existing supply base and the property portfolio. This deep understanding helps the workers to come up to solution and react in their best possible way to the issue.

Expensive emergency maintenance:

There is a price difference between emergency repair and planned repairs. Emergency repairs cost more than the planned repair. There is an obvious reason why the emergency repair is more costly. The reason is that the shutdowns happen at the time of production runs. These are not prescheduled during downtimes. Apart from that the expedited shipping of the spare parts are more expensive than the regular shipping. Sometimes the maintenance staffs are forced to work overtime than their regular times to maintain and repair the machinery.

Need of reactive maintenance?

After getting an overview on the reactive maintenance, the question arises, what is the need of this reactive maintained or why do we require it and where it is performed?

The answer is reactive maintenance is mostly performed on those components that are cheaper and can be easily replaced or repaired. Mostly it is used when the issue is minor. This is also taken into account when the cost of preventive maintenance is greater than the cost of reactive maintenance. Mostly reactive maintenance is ideal in business or commercial properties.

Advantages of Reactive Maintenance

There are several advantages of reactive maintenance. Some of them are listed below.

Lower costs:
the initial advantage is it is cheaper as compared to protective maintenance. Sometimes the systems or equipment are new. So, they require little maintenance. This helps to save on emergency labour and parts. While one gets an issue, the initial thing is to get the basic of the issue and then gets a point of contact and contacts the relevant workers and contractors. To resolve the issue, it is required to find the status of the issue. But if the issue is simple then the cost of maintenance is least. If it is major then the cost of maintenance is more. In this case risk is involved. In certain the reactive maintenance is the best option. It is the spontaneous reaction to an issue.

Requirement of fewer staff:
The complexity of issue states the number of workers. A simple issue requires fewer workers whereas a major issue needs larger number of workers. This helps to outsource staffs and reducing the internal staffs.

No planning needed :
The issues are resolved immediately. There is a small time gap between the occurrence of issues and the repair strategy. Technicians are able to repair the equipment in case they fail. As the occurrence of these failures are unpredictable so there is no requirement of wasting time in planning their repairs previously.

Reduction in the cost of maintenance:
The approach of a reactive maintenance includes or sits in line with the statement “run until the failure”. Equipment and parts are used vigorously without spending any other vast amount. Maintenance is avoided, quick fixes or temporary repair are made, and checks are not ordered. This is done in order to reduce the ongoing cost of maintenance and spend only when it is required.

Increased margins:
some of the operations of the reactive maintenance depend on the type of Management Company. Some prefers dealing with reactive maintenance that may result in potential growth and profit margin. Those operations that involves a higher amount of job prices may often offer an out of hours attendance’ and emergency call out. This is somehow the opportunity to charge more to the client as the client requires the work to be done quickly and is desperate to complete the work .in that case the client is not in a mood to negotiate so one may take the advantage and charge more.

Alternatives

There is always advantage and disadvantage regarding the reactive maintenance. So, considering the disadvantage one may focus on the preventive maintenance. This takes an entirely different approach. A preventive approach limits the unexpected problems or issues by making regular checks and planning, servicing the approach. This aims at reducing long term expenses and avoids unanticipated issues.

However there is nothing that the preventative maintenance can solely repair. The equipment will breakdown in an unpredicted way. In that case one may require the reactive maintenance. This is the reason why every maintenance team requires the essence of it.
