Improve maintenance costs, increase your operational availability and reduce total cost of ownership
On condition-based maintenance is they key to maintain the correct equipment at the right time. On condition maintenance is based on using real-time data to prioritise and optimise maintenance resources. This process will determine the asset health, and act only when maintenance is actually necessary. Developments in recent years have permitted extensive instrumentation of equipment, and together with better tools for analysing objective test data, maintenance personnel of today are now in a position to decide what is the right time to perform maintenance on some piece of equipment.
Ideally on condition maintenance will allow maintenance personnel to do only necessary works, minimising:
- spare parts cost,
- production downtime,
- time spent on maintenance.
As systems get more costly, and instrumentation and information systems tend to become cheaper and more reliable, On condition maintenance becomes an important strategy for businesses to operate in an optimal manner, leading to lower production cost and lower use of resources. Lower use of resources may be one of the most important differentiators in a future where environmental issues become more important by the day.
