Machine maintenance can be time-consuming and expensive. How do you keep your competitive advantage while obtaining a high return on investment (ROI)? This is a brief outline of technological improvements and managerial techniques aimed at reducing maintenance and machinery downtime.

The industry of maintenance, repair, and operations is expected to be worth $701.3 billion by 2026. This massive spending is the outcome of several businesses functioning in industrial settings. Unplanned downtime is frequently caused by old, worn parts and components.
