The way in which manufacturers care for their equipment has changed over the years. While once trapped in the preventive maintenance loop, an alternative has been birthed as a result of technology that has shaken up the way the entire industry is handling maintenance. Predictive maintenance takes the proactive approach of preventive maintenance, and incorporates a more targeted strategy, aiming to identify and address potential maintenance issues as they occur. While both predictive and preventive maintenance aim to offset the costly effects of equipment downtime, predictive maintenance introduces further efficiency by focusing maintenance resources where they are most needed and provide the most value. The work accomplished by predictive maintenance strategies is made possible by the low-or no-maintenance technology integrated into new equipment components and machinery. To learn more about the specifics of this equipment and the ways in which it continues to move the needle forward in the case of manufacturers, be sure to read on to the resource highlighted alongside this post for additional information.
