Maximizing the life of the equipment and reducing expenses is the objective of the companies that operate with machinery.
And an impossible mission if they do not have tools that predict when the machines will fail or the useful life of their components.
However, thanks to the digital transformation, predictive maintenance is now a reality for companies, allowing them to manage their assets more efficiently and accurately.
In this post, we tell you what predictive maintenance is, the benefits it will bring to your company and how to manage your assets effectively.
What is predictive maintenance
It is a technique that allows predicting the time when a machine component will fail.
In this way, the element can be replaced just before it breaks down.
And so, the equipment downtime is minimized and the component’s lifetime is maximized.
And it is that one of the main objectives of predictive maintenance is to enhance the operation and availability of equipment, without this implying greater investment.
On the contrary, it aims to achieve a minimum cost.
A software to perform predictive maintenance
To perform predictive maintenance, companies have software or computer tools that predict the right moment when a component of a computer, system or machine may fail.
Thus, said component can be replaced, starting from a plan, before it is damaged or deteriorated.
The software is implemented by a company in order to detect faults in its initial stages.
This makes it possible to have enough time to plan and schedule corrective actions during planned breaks.
In addition, all the company’s personnel can access the status of the assets, regardless of their level of responsibility or previous experience.
On the other hand, access to reports is immediate from anywhere in the world through a normal Internet connection.
Benefits of predictive maintenance
- Increase with respect to the availability of the system, equipment or machinery.
- Improved reliability in general.
- Reduction of losses in raw material due to unplanned breaks.
- Low in the intervention rate versus the years of life of the equipment or machinery.
- Reduction of spending on spare parts.
- Reduction of labor requirements in repairs.
- Accident reduction and increased security.
- Reduction of failures in general and especially those that are disastrous.
