Using software in predictive maintenance
October 17, 2023
The benefits of total predictive maintenance (TPM) and computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) can enhance a plant’s efficiency and optimize the use of existing resources.
Preventive maintenance is the industry standard for digital maintenance management. However, once preventive maintenance becomes the norm, plants can push further and enhance their operations by instituting maintenance as a company-wide responsibility. This extends a plant’s workforce far beyond the handful of dedicated maintenance workers to other departmental staff.
One of the best ways to implement cost control measures and maximize plant equipment uptime is by implementing sound enterprise asset management (EAM) principles and integrating them with a well-defined predictive maintenance approach.
- Gain a solid understanding of predictive maintenance, and what should be included.
- Learn about total predictive maintenance (TPM) and computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), and how software can enhance this type of maintenance program.
- Understand the pros and cons of each type of system, including cost and training.
- Review case studies in which software systems were implemented. TPM and mobile CMMS connect all parts of a plant, which will be reviewed.
