Predictive Maintenance Solutions

Connect Insight to Execution

Connect Best Practice to Results

Companies that implement predictive maintenance (PdM) programs reduce maintenance costs effectively and decrease up to 30% of their preventive maintenance (PM) tasks.

Decrease Maintenance Costs
Reduce Unexpected Failures
Decrease Repair and Overhaul Time
Reduce Spare Parts Inventory
Increase Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)
Increase Uptime

Why Predictive Maintenance?

Most industrial equipment does not suddenly break down and stop working. The truth is equipment breaks down gradually, over a period of weeks or months. Furthermore, it gives off numerous warning signals along the way.

These early warning signs, such as slight changes in temperature, vibration, or sound, can be detected by condition monitoring technologies in real-time, including vibration analysis and oil analysis. This allows your maintenance team time to plan, schedule, and make repairs before you encounter equipment failures and unplanned downtime. With artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology, data can be gathered and analyzed with greater efficiency.

The First Step

The first step to ensuring a successful PdM program is a simple list – a detailed and accurate equipment list.

Why? Your equipment list is the foundation for all the key steps that follow. If your list is incomplete or incorrect, everything that is built from it will be flawed. Any shortcuts or inaccuracies will be exposed as big problems later. Time is money, gain more of it by eliminating unnecessary preventive maintenance, decreasing reactive maintenance, and optimizing asset maintenance. A good list is essential for achieving everything listed below:

  • Identifying how your equipment can fail
  • Choosing the right PdM technologies to apply to the asset
  • Determining the ideal amount of PdM coverage for your plant
  • Ranking the criticality of each piece of equipment
  • Building maintenance management databases for each PdM technology
  • Determining PdM staffing levels
  • Implementing a sound work order system
