COVID-19 is Contaminating the Sustainability of Supply Chains

The recent COVID-19 outbreak has popularised the term ‘supply chain management’ due to the unprecedented, rapid and devastating effects that such a pandemic may cause for supply chains that literally keep society functioning. For example, around 95% of the most powerful American companies have reported significant disruption to their supply chains due to the coronavirus pandemic.   How to ensure that key supply chains – such as those related to healthcare and food – are able to cope in this situation is now a familiar preoccupation for the Government, the media and general society.

Some people get very excited about these definitions and can spend a lot of time on for example disagreeing with what is and what isn’t preventive maintenance. Let’s not do that, instead, I’ll offer you my view of the different types of maintenance and more importantly, when to use them.   9 TYPES OF MAINTENANCE: FROM PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE TO CORRECTIVE MAINTENANCE AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN   As far as I am concerned terminology is not important. Other than making sure we are talking about the same thing. If what I consider to be condition-based maintenance you call predictive maintenance that doesn’t really matter. As long as we can sensibly talk about […]
