Downtime is expensive

For revenue generating equipment, every minute it is not operating is a loss in revenue. The time crunch you are put into will also bring about additional administrative costs. You or your employees may have to put other tasks on the back burner while resources are focused on replacing the equipment.

Poor Equipment Choices
If your equipment fails you are going to need to replace it quickly. This will not give you enough time to research different models and alternatives. You will typically go with the quickest solution which may not always be the best solution. You end up purchasing an alternative that you would not have if you had sufficient time to do research and testing.
Substitutes Can be Expensive
If you are not able to operate your equipment you can either outsource the job it did or rent the equipment.
