-Most common mistakes in planning

  • One of the most common mistakes in equipment planning is not taking into account the limitations of the equipment.
  • Another common mistake is not taking into account how long it will take to complete the task. Often, people assume that their task will take no more than a few hours when in reality it might take several days or even weeks.
  • Finally, people often make assumptions about how much damage can be done in the event of a failure. 

-Justifying the Mistakes

In any project, there are going to be mistakes made. However, if the equipment planning process is done poorly, these mistakes can lead to major problems down the line. Here are some of the most common mistakes made in detailed equipment planning:

1) Not taking into account the impact of changes on other projects:

If one project needs new equipment and another project is already using that equipment, there will be a conflict. The new equipment may not work properly with the existing system, and it could even cause injury.

2) Ignoring the need for redundancy:

If one piece of equipment fails, it can cause a lot of damage. A system should have enough redundancy so that if one part goes down, there is still enough functioning equipment to get the job done.

3) Not considering future changes in technology:

As technology changes, so too do the need for equipment. If plans are not updated regularly, companies may find themselves in trouble when new technologies come along.

By taking these simple steps, companies can avoid many potential problems down the line.
