What is predictive maintenance strategy.
Predictive maintenance is a strategy that analyzes the data from machines and uses it to predict when the machine will break down. This allows for preemptive measures to be taken before any damage can occur, saving you time and money in the long run.
Prediction management systems can work well if they are implemented correctly, but there’s always going to be flaws or problems with their system because all devices have errors. The human element is also imperfectible as people make mistakes too. Although this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t use these prediction management systems; on the contrary – using them could save us more time than not implementing these strategies at all!
List of 4 applications for predictive maintenance strategy.
- Reducing the needed downtime
- Understanding which machines break down most frequently
- Monitoring machine condition and adjustments to reduce errors
- Identifying machine problems more quickly
Who should use predictive maintenance strategy
People who should use this strategy are those that have a high volume of production and the cost of downtime is higher than the investment in predictive maintenance. Predictive management systems can be used to plan for when your machine will break down, so you know how much time it has left before breaking down. This means less inventing on what needs to be done if an item stops working – which could be detrimental depending on the situation!
The advantages outweigh any disadvantages by using predictive strategies because they can help us avoid many problems (overproduction) and save time in getting back up and running again. It’s not foolproof but these methods do offer some comfort knowing we’re taking care of our machines’ future health!
How to implement a predictive maintenance strategy.
The first step to implementing a predictive maintenance strategy is having an understanding of what it actually entails. The following are some important points that need to be addressed in order to implement a successful strategy.
You need to have a good understanding of what your company’s risks are in order to create an effective strategy, and know what you need to do in order to avoid them. Machines might break down often and as such there needs to be safeguards put in place so that this doesn’t cause an environmental disaster.
The Iso14001 process is one that brings together predictive maintenance practices into one cohesive system. The reason this is important is because a lot of times people think they are implementing these systems – but they’re not, causing for a less effective system overall.
Predictive maintenance is then the key to maintaining compliance with the ISO 14001. It needs to be implemented before anything else.
What are the costs associated with not implementing predictive maintenance?
There are a few factors to take into consideration when discussing the costs associated with not having a predictive maintenance strategy. The first is that without such a strategy, you could be faced with frequent breakdowns that would cost you time and money. Depending on how often the machine breaks down or how much downtime there is, it might make more sense for your company to invest in predictive maintenance.
The disadvantages of predictive management systems include the following:
- Increased production cost.
- Loss of profits due to idling equipment.
- Expensive costs for short breakdowns.
Advantages of predictive maintenance strategy.
- Reduced production cost.
- Increased profits due to less idling.
- Smoother process when something machine does break down and necessary precautions are already in place.
