Studies have shown that implementing predictive maintenance practices - both automated and manual - could represent cost avoidance and savings up to 15%. We get it, it’s hard to run numbers and see the high level benefit when you’re bogged down with maintenance requests. Hopefully, this calculator gets you and other engineers involved and excited about the business case for moving into predicitve maintenance - what ever the size that fits your needs.
Watch and Learn How Predictive Maintenance Can Work for You
Why Predictive Maintenance is Important
Having a proper predictive maintenance system will give you data and insight from your machines to significantly prevent the risk of failures, as well as smoothing the process if an issue does transpire. Even a small-scale PdM system can reduce maintenance time by 20-50%.READ MORE
What is your maintenance strategy?Answer these few questions to find out how you stack up.
You are a Predictive MaintenanceROOKIE
You scored at the PdM rookie level, which means you are most likely in a reactive state. A reactive strategy will maximize the output of a machine, which seems great, but can actually do more critical damage in the long run if you’re only assessing a machine once it’s broken down. This strategy is cost-effective with inexpensive machinery but high-value assets can really suffer. Scoring at the rookie level is completely normal because there is an opportunity for change. We’re here to provide a foundational level of PdM, follow this link to get started on your PdM Journey.
You are a Predictive MaintenancePro
Great news, you scored at the PdM pro level which means you are most likely in a proactive maintenance state. Challenges associated with proactive maintenance are ongoing manual maintenance and monitoring, as well as increased employee training. In this link, you’ll find tons of information on PdM, its benefits, choosing the right sensors, and more. View our savings calculator in this link.
You are a Predictive MaintenanceEXPERT
Congratulations, you scored at the expert level! You most likely have a combination of Predictive, Preventive, and Proactive measures in place to ensure your factory is running efficiently. Make sure you have the right sensors in place to maximize the benefit of PdM.
