English term or phrase: to keep the status quo
By using this natural point to break from in-line to near/off-line processing, it is possible to operate all the machines at maximum speed, keeping the status quo by running some machines for a longer time than others or having more devices of one type than another. It also means that existing finishing equipment can continue to be used.

Explanation:
Certamente significa mantenere la situazione così com'è, ma non vedo perchè non si possa lasciarlo così com'è, visto che è espressione corrente della lingua italiana e tradurla mi pare una forzatura.
