Anton, Great question!

And let me take Jim's example a little further.
Upgrading software...the old system may work fine and be error free, but a new version may operate faster, be easier to use. So there is no preventative action here, but an improvement in efficiency. Same idea can be applied to machinery, the old one may work error free, but a newer model may save time in set-up or operation.

Just my nickels worth...
Have a good one,
