Industry 4.0 has arrived, and with it, there’s a new solution that leverages software, advanced Lube analysis, sensors, big data, artificial intelligence, advanced lubricant analysis and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to keeping your machines humming: Predictive maintenance (PdM).
Predictive maintenance is designed to help you monitor and analyze the condition of your inservice equipment in order to detect problems at their outset and predict when you should perform maintenance. PdM generates considerable productivity, labor and cost savings over time-based preventive maintenance because it keeps your machines running at their most efficient levels and because maintenance is only performed when it’s actually needed. With a proper PdM solution, you’ll achieve:
An industry slang term for the emerging trend of predictive maintenance, which uses the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) to predict when equipment will require corrective maintenance so it can leverage Overall Equipment effectiveness (OEE) and avoid breakdowns.
