Increase Uptime with Predictive Maintenance

Increase uptime by up to 30% by allowing for maintenance procedures to be scheduled before they become a problem

What is predictive maintenance?

Predictive maintenance continuously analyzes the condition of connected assets and equipment to reduce the likelihood of unplanned downtime or machine failure. It is a transformative application of the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) with tremendous advantages for your organization.

Decreased downtime: Predictive maintenance enables technicians to detect issues in advance and resolve problems before equipment failure can occur.

Greater worker productivity: There is no need to disrupt worker productivity for an unexpected malfunction or breakdown. Predictive maintenance plans around workers’ schedules.

Reduced field service costs: By anticipating machine maintenance, service departments can generate major cost-savings and increased ROI (Return on Investment).

Improved product design: Harnessing the power of IIoT data collected through your machine’s sensors, product designers can use this vital information.

Improved worker safety: An unexpected breakdown or malfunction can lead to hazardous working conditions for your employees. By predicting when a malfunction may occur, service can be carried out before a machine becomes dangerous.

How predictive service works and why is it important?

Predictive maintenance vs condition based monitoring

Although both forms of proactive maintenance are aimed at preventing machine failure, there is a significant difference between condition-based and predictive maintenance. Condition-based maintenance uses sensors to collect real-time measurements from equipment about various conditions, such as temperature, pressure, or vibration. While predictive maintenance is a type of condition-based maintenance, it uses the constant stream of IIoT sensor data on a much larger scale.

Learn about the 4 phases of AI adoption and how service leaders are applying service optimization strategy to transform the predictive maintenance process in Part 1 and Part 2 of this Emerj report.

Benefits of predictive maintenance

Predictive maintenance is the process of predicting a machine's performance, status, and real-time health. With predictive maintenance, machines are equipped with sensors that are connected to IoT-enabled software that gives users updates, alerts, and notifications. The IoT-enabled software will collect vast amounts of data. This data will then be run through various algorithms that can be used to accurately predict when a future breakdown may occur. This form of machine learning allows predictive maintenance to prevent running unnecessary maintenance checks, further reducing waste in terms of time and effort.
