Downtime due to equipment failures disrupts production schedules and delays product delivery — every minute translates to lost revenue and potential supply chain disruptions.

As a drugmaker, if your maintenance is reactive rather than proactive, you run a higher risk of contaminated equipment or facilities, which can compromise product quality, endanger patient health, and tarnish a company’s reputation. To remain competitive and ensure drug quality, pharma manufacturers must reduce unplanned downtime through improved maintenance practices.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How to identify common pitfalls in planning and scheduling processes and learn how to mitigate them. 
  • Understand how to build a compelling case for investing in maintenance planning. 
  • Discover strategies to optimize the availability of spare parts inventory for maintenance.

By mastering maintenance planning and scheduling, your company can elevate its competitive edge and provide high-quality products to consumers.
