Why is a maintenance backlog a good thing?

On occasion, we come across maintenance managers that are hell-bent on reducing their maintenance backlog to zero.

Normally measured in hours or days, the maintenance backlog provides an indication of the efficiency of the maintenance department, the adequacy of the maintenance budget, and/or the capacity of the asset based being used for production/operations.

They spend an extraordinary amount of effort ensuring things are completed according to their schedules.

This is not a desirable outcome.

A tale of two schedules

We see many customers who already have a CMMS/EAM in place, and as expected, these applications provide some form of scheduling. What we also see, more often than not, is only one schedule being used.

Why is this problem?

I'm glad you asked.
