Predictive maintenance allows manufacturers to lower maintenance costs, extend equipment life, reduce downtime and improve production quality by addressing problems before they cause equipment failures.
More high-quality data we can feed into the predictive model the better its accuracy.
Why do we need predictive maintenance?
Monitoring for future failure allows maintenance to be planned before the failure occurs. Ideally, predictive maintenance allows the maintenance frequency to be as low as possible to prevent unplanned reactive maintenance, without incurring costs associated with doing too much preventive maintenance.
What are the advantages of predictive maintenance?
Predictive maintenance, a corporate philosophy
- Reduction in maintenance costs.
- Reduction in machine failures.
- Reduced downtime for repairs.
- Reduced stock of spare parts.
- Increased service life of parts.
- Increased production.
- Improved operator safety.
- Verification of repairs.
Why is preventative maintenance important?
Preventive maintenance is an important part of facilities management. The goal of a successful preventive maintenance program is to establish consistent practices designed to improve the performance and safety of the equipment at your property. Equipment downtime is decreased and the number of major repairs are reduced.
How does predictive maintenance work?
Predictive maintenance evaluates the condition of equipment by performing periodic or continuous (online) equipment condition monitoring. Most predictive maintenance is performed while equipment is operating normally to minimize disruption of everyday operations.
