Businesses work hard to make money, but broken parts or applications can make it much harder to stay in the black. Bad parts, such as a bum thermocouple, do more than just aggravate you. They can lead to costly downtime that can hurt the business’ bank account in more than one way.
When something breaks, you still have to fix it. Unexpected issues with parts or machines can force you to shell out some money to fix the issue long before you had planned on regular maintenance and replacement. That means that you’re already down earlier than expected, plus you’ll either have to hire someone to fix the issue or assign it to someone within your company.
While you wait for that part to be replaced or that machine to be fixed, it can’t generate any revenue. That means that you won’t be able to make money at the rate that you had planned, losing you potential money or hurting your chances of meeting important deadlines.
Remember that employee who you may need to fix your issue? Chances are that he or she had to stop doing something else to work on this unexpected problem. That’s lost productivity that can hurt your bottom line. Also, downed machines may mean that other employees may be unable to do their jobs until the issue is fixed. It’s hard to make money when the workers can’t work.
