Predictive Maintenances


Have predictive and proactive web-based maintenance performed on your building or electrical systems to reduce unplanned downtime

Why not practice condition monitoring so far


Today, technical equipment is maintained reactively or at regular intervals, usually based on the experience of the maintenance team or equipment manufacturer. The actual need for maintenance, however, depends on the operating conditions of the plant on site and should therefore be carried out dynamically.

The goal of predictive maintenance is to

  • Predict undesirable operating conditions and events at an early stage to avoid unplanned plant shutdowns.
  • To reduce maintenance costs through flexible maintenance cycles

Further goal is a …


  • To minimize the downtime of the equipment
  • Maximize the availability of equipment
  • Optimize the economic efficiency of plant operation by recording and analyzing the condition of plant components in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Identify and plan targeted maintenance measures in good time, if necessary on the basis of automated recommendations, and initiate their implementation

What is…


Preventive maintenance is a maintenance strategy that typically involves regular inspection and maintenance work throughout the life cycle to ensure the smooth operation of equipment. This strategy requires careful planning and scheduling before problems occur, as well as accurate records of service reports and inspections performed.

With preventive maintenance you pursue,

  • Reducing the risk of equipment failure
  • Slowing the degradation of the equipment
  • Avoiding consequential damage due to an unplanned equipment failure.
  • Reduce maintenance costs, including the unavailability costs associated with a shutdown.
  • The increase of the plannability of maintenance work

What is….


Unlike preventive maintenance, however, predictive maintenance takes into account estimated service intervals and data-driven insights based on the measurement of operating conditions, enabling real-time monitoring and diagnosis of equipment problems. This helps identify anomalies in automated operations before they become real problems that could impact the business.

Despite higher upfront costs, companies can expect a variety of benefits, including a 10x return on investment (ROI) within the first two years and a 25-30% reduction in maintenance costs.

What is predictive, condition-based maintenance ….


Condition-based aims to prevent failures and requires regular checks of the system’s condition, efficiency, and other indicators. All of this data can be collected automatically in the field or remotely via a direct network connection to the equipment to ensure that it is constantly monitored.

To make predictions for predictive maintenance, large amounts of data are collected, stored and analyzed.

It allows maintenance staff to anticipate failures by using the results of the analysis to create the most accurate of your maintenance planning. This means they know when a piece of equipment might fail and can therefore decide whether to perform a constant or regular interval check.

What is the difference between predictive and preventive


Die präventive Instandhaltung stützt sich im Wesentlichen auf Daten, die zeigen, wann Ausfälle typischerweise auftreten, womit eine präventive Handlung ausgelöst wird. Eine regelmäßig geplante präventive Instandhaltung kann auch Ausfälle vorhersagen, die durch voraussichtlichen Verschleiß verursacht werden. Auslöser für Instandhaltungsmaßnahmen sind hier Zeit, Ereignisse und Zählerstände. Dies reduziert zwar die Auswirkungen von Ausfällen, verursacht aber manchmal auch vorzeitige oder unnötige Instandhaltungskosten.

 Die vorausschauende Instandhaltung basiert auf dem tatsächlichen Zustand der Maschinen und Geräte, zu dessen Ermittlung Daten, Statistiken, Machine Learning und Modellierung genutzt werden, um Probleme zu identifizieren – und ihnen vorzubeugen.

Advantages for your…


The business benefit of predictive maintenance is that it lowers maintenance costs and reduces losses associated with downtime.

Preventing breakdowns increases manufacturing productivity, reduces downtime costs, and improves the customer experience as breakdowns or failures could negatively impact end users.

Unplanned maintenance can cost 12-15% more than planned maintenance, and the added urgency of resuming regular operations as quickly as possible can further increase costs and risk.  That’s why forward-thinking companies rely on predictive maintenance strategies.
