Everything you need to know about IoT in maintenance

 

1. Condition Monitoring: Let your assets talk to you

Just like us, assets can speak.

Their talk and their words consist of parameters and signals such as vibration, temperature, viscosity, decibels, wear particles, corrosion, and a whole lot more.

And when things get bad, the assets shout at us. The severity of their words goes up and up.

They tell us they are in poor health or bad condition.

Are you really listening? If you are, you are already performing some form of condition monitoring.

6. Reliability & Availability: How to Get There with FMEAs and P-F Curves

Failure Modes & Effects Analysis: getting to the bottom (or top) of things

For organizations that suffer from unexpected failures and unplanned downtime, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) can help achieve high asset reliability and availability.

You get reliability and availability right, and you are a long way down the road to profitability.

But here’s a surprise.

Many organizations and manufacturers never make this journey and happily continue (if useable product is getting to the customer on time) in a downward spiral.
