What is proactive planning?

It is the opposite of reactive, which is waiting for failure. Proactive is the changing of parts before they fail. As an example, on a scheduled down day, major components are checked for wear. Depending on the process, this can be very time consuming, but the efficiency and the reliability of the process is greatly increased. Although not a foolproof solution, failures can still occur but instead of major components failing with a greater or longer downtime to repair the problem, smaller parts may fail but can be replaced much quicker. Some parts cannot be checked for they are what is called 'black boxes', which will operate for so long before they fail, and because they are less expensive you wait for them to fail and then react to the failure. Another example of proactive planning: lighting studies done for lighting efficiency for larger factories or buildings which suggest replacing lamps at eighty percent spent or used before they expire. Proactive planning is the concept of planning AHEAD of the actual event, to be prepared for it (whatever it is). By being proactive you avoid being over-run by the event, and have plans and procedures in place to cope with it (whatever it is). Emergency organizations, like police and EMS have plans for future events like riots, floods or earthquakes, you should, too. In business, it is always good to be prepared. I hate the term "proactive planning." It's redundant -- a pleonasm, if you will. One cannot reactively plan. You can be reactive or you can be proactive. You can wait for stuff to happen and then react, or you can anticipate stuff and plan for its occurrence. Planning, by its very nature, is proactive. It doesn't need the attributive proactive. (Now I'm being redundant.) For another (longer) explanation of Proactive Planning click...
