Even a few machines at a small manufacturing plant can cause a loss of more than a million dollars. We all know time is money, and when machines are not operating, it means businesses start losing money, immediately. These losses will continue that trend until a solution can be reached.
After a manufacturing loss, capacity and lead times are the two of the most critical issues facing a business. An employer must find a way to meet production goals as soon as possible. So, when deciding if a machine can be decontaminated, repaired, refurbished or replaced, the most important factor often comes down to lead time. A new machine may be desirable, but lead times can often be 90 to 120 days, and sometimes even longer in cases of highly specialized equipment.
