Use a Computerized Maintenance Management System to Improve Predictive Maintenance Performance


Companies that have moved from a highly reactive environment to a more planned one notice significant improvement. A computer maintenance management or enterprise asset management system is useful tool to create a planned environment, help build accurate equipment history, and develop comprehensive analysis capability.

For example, monitoring the condition of each and every light bulb in your facility so that they might be replaced just prior to failure is massive overkill. On the other hand, however, allowing a critical component of an expensive asset to run to failure is unthinkable. Maintainers have the option of monitoring conditions (e.g., vibration), Read More
