A business with a long-term plan predicated on success will only go as far as their maintenance scheduling will allow them. Identifying the correct maintenance strategy for the needs of any business can be difficult, but if you were hoping to make the most out of your business, it’s a necessary step. Beginning with preventive maintenance, this strategy is predicated on performing routine maintenance on each piece of an organization’s equipment at set time intervals throughout the calendar year. This maintenance is largely dependent on the features of any piece of equipment such age, run-time and existing conditions that require additional maintenance. Whereas predictive maintenance is a much more dynamic approach to maintaining equipment. In this strategy, organizations integrate technologies connected with the Internet of Things to collect and analyze data directly from the machine to determine the most optimal maintenance schedule. These systems will indicate when a piece of equipment requires maintenance or when said equipment is close to critical failure. As these systems connect to the Internet of Things, the more and more machines that join the network, the more accurate these systems’ reporting can truly be. To learn more about the ways in which these technologies are revolutionizing the way in which maintenance is conducted, please see the resource highlighted alongside this post.
