The Case for Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM)
Keeping physical assets in proper working order is essential to any organization. Today, most maintenance is still performed either according to a set calendar schedule or according to the most ancient procedure: “if it breaks, fix it.” In this modern, data-intensive industrial environment, we can do much better and take plant performance to the next level with condition-based maintenance (CBM).
If It Ain’t Broke…
The drawbacks of a reactive, "break-then-fix" maintenance policy should be obvious. Unplanned downtime kills your plant’s capacity, necessitates emergency parts and labor, and major failures present substantial health, safety and environmental risks.
An Intelligent Approach
The objectives of condition-based maintenance are:
- preventing unplanned downtime
- making better use of maintenance resources
- maximizing the operational life of you assets
A condition-based maintenance program takes real-time asset data and gives it the predictive power to add capacity, reliability, and profitability to your operation.
