For most companies, the idea of moving from reactive to preventive maintenance (PM) is out of the question, even before discussions start. Such a huge leap can sound very intimidating. However, for those who choose to take on the challenge, there is some good news. It's not an impossible feat.
In this episode of Masterminds in Maintenance, Ryan and Shawn Fitzgerald of ThomasNet discuss how to effectively lead different generations in the workplace, and how manufacturers in the modern age can create an appealing culture for the next generation to come.
No matter how large or small your manufacturing plant is, efficiency and productivity relative to your capital investment are the keys to maintaining your competitive edge.

“I enjoy how easy the software is. I was utilizing the free version for over a year and wish I upgraded sooner. I am able to track maintenance issues much more efficiently to ascertain if a bigger problem may be the main issue. The accessibility on my smart device makes this software a vital tool in daily operations.”
“At a former employer we used a similar work order system that had half the features of UpKeep at twice the cost. I was amazed to discover how much we got for so little. The biggest pro is the functionality. All of our inventory, work orders, assets, schedules, and meters are all included in one app. The account setup is very flexible and affordable. Customer support responds instantly and resolves any issue that arises.”
“Before Upkeep, we were on a paper system that was messy, unorganized, and inefficient. Now we’re able to utilize the request feature for our crews to submit work order requests with pictures indicating the issue that needs attention. This is then viewable by management, from origination to completion, and actually beyond in a way that allows us to learn from our service history what is working for us and what is not.”
