PPM also known as Planned, preventative maintenance or as planned maintenance, scheduled maintenance, PPM maintenance or preventive maintenance. With this form of maintenance, equipment and building fabric inspections and testing are undertaken at regular intervals by specially trained engineers to prevent the potential for breakdown, confirm safety and ensure it is efficient in operation.
PPM maintenance usually involves careful planning and scheduling. It sometimes becomes a very complex process especially for companies that have larger properties, a number of different sites and large amounts of equipment and machinery.
It can either be time based or condition monitored.

These indicators are most often based on deteriorating equipment or building fabric condition.

Investing in a PPM maintenance plan with a facilities management company has the benefit of reducing the disadvantages as listed above. Facilities management companies provide the equipment and engineers required for the PPM maintenance, the organisation need not invest in any in-house property management that may cost significantly more. This benefits are likely to cancel out the investment cost of the scheduled maintenance.
Also, as the facilities management company recruit and manage the engineers required for the maintenance operation, there is no waste of man hours on the clients part. The facility management company have access to the latest technology and equipment and with specialised, skilled engineers within each service area.
