The cost of maintenance, generally speaking, increases dramatically as the operating temperatures increase. Your maintenance dollars can be spent (and wasted) if careful thought and clear understanding of the equipment design and the extent of the repairs are not taken into consideration. The largest hurdle managers have had to overcome is their inability to actually see the working interior that they are trying to maintain. Problems and repairs generally cost more because they’re dealt with after they fail or reveal themselves from the outside. It comes as no surprise that trying to avoid expensive cost and time overruns is a huge challenge when new problems are discovered while making repairs.
