Increase Uptime by Extending Service Intervals

By Crystal Jeffers

Introduction

Over the last decade, the idea of uptime, preventive maintenance, and extended service intervals have grown in popularity. The need to increase drive time while decreasing operating costs, unexpected tow bills, and expensive repairs is nothing new. There are many approaches to setting extended service intervals, most of which are tailored for specific purposes within specific applications. Before implementing extended service intervals, it is important to understand how they work and how to leverage technologies for data processing, maintenance scheduling, and other time saving automations.
