Impact of poor maintenance, Mechanical Engineering

1. Production Capacity : Machines idled by breakdowns cannot produce thus the capacity of the systems is reduced.

2. Production cost: Labor costs per unit rise because of idle labor due to machine breakdown the machine malfunction result in scrub unit labor and material costs increase. Because cost of maintenance which includes such costs as costs of providing repair facilities repair crew preventive maintenance inspection spare parts and stand by machines will increase as machines break down frequently.

3. Product and Service Quality: Poorly maintained equipments produce low quality products. Equipments that have not been properly maintained have frequent breakdown and cannot provide adequate service to customers.
