Predictive Maintenance is based on the collection, management, and intelligent use of data. This method focuses on “asset health,” performing services and repairs based on the asset’s failure to meet prescribed performance objectives.
Predictive maintenance techniques are designed to help determine the condition of in-service equipment in order to predict when maintenance should be performed.
Adapting a Predictive Maintenance strategy requires an understanding of how and why asset failure occurs and identifying the warning signs of potential problems or failure. Predictive maintenance also provides the means to improve productivity, product quality and overall effectiveness of manufacturing environments.
Predictive Maintenance allows for safety compliance, preemptive corrective actions, and increased asset life. By looking ahead, and knowing what failure is likely to occur when, pre-emptive investigations, maintenance schedule adjustments, and repairs can be performed before the asset fails.
Benefits of Predictive Maintenance include:
- Reduction or near elimination of unscheduled equipment downtime caused by equipment or system failure;
- Increased labor utilization;
- Increased production capacity;
- Reduced maintenance costs;
- Increased equipment lifespan.
Eagle Technology’s Proteus CMMS provides a rich database of asset and building history. Detailed asset information, vendor data, manuals, alarm and work order history—all this data and more is captured, managed, and reported. Facility managers have the information and control they need to make intelligent, timely decisions that drive asset performance, productivity, and occupant comfort and safety.
Proteus MMX offers easy integration with Building Automation Systems, Analytics software packages, and Graphics software packages to make a truly smart building. Proteus MMX is highly configurable, providing you with the power to increase productivity, achieve predictive maintenance, meet regulatory issues, reduce energy usage, and support sustainability initiatives.
Preventive maintenance is an important part of facility maintenance management, planned maintenance helps to improve equipment life and avoid any unplanned maintenance activity.
Using preventive maintenance in conjunction with a predictive and reactive maintenance strategy, you can control costs while managing downtime and maximizing uptime. A properly implemented CMMS will manage, capture, and track inspection, maintenance, and repair activities for cost containment, risk reduction, as well as improving the customer experience. When you combine a CMMS with Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), you can eliminate costly machine downtime and shift to preventive maintenance.
Benefits of Preventive Maintenance include:
- Equipment downtime is decreased and the number of major repairs is reduced
- Better management of assets and increased life expectancy of assets
- Reduced overtime costs and more economical use of maintenance workers
- Timely, routine repairs by-pass fewer large-scale repairs
- Improved safety and quality conditions for everyone
5 Reasons why your facility needs Preventive Maintenance:
- Saves Money
- Maximizes efficiency
- Prolongs equipment life
- Reduces maintenance costs
- Improves safety and reliability
