Preventive Maintenance = Productivity

Maintenance préventive = productivité


Expense or performance? By choosing to focus on preventive maintenance you join those who look for performance in their operations, their assets and their investments. In this course, you will learn that preventive maintenance means more than replacing parts according to manufacturers’ instructions and after specific periods.

Target audience

Those responsible for equipment maintenance.
