When considering the ways in which manufacturers can ensure their equipment remains in the best condition possible, there are a few different maintenance strategies they follow. Reactive maintenance, preventive maintenance, and predictive maintenance are a few of those strategies. Most manufacturers will draw upon some combination of these methods, although each strategy is not created equally. An approach that relies heavily upon reactive maintenance, for instance, will prove extremely costly in the long run, as equipment downtime will accumulate, repair costs will balloon, and equipment lifespan will be severely curtailed. Predictive maintenance is the most effective way to achieve optimal maintenance, drawing upon data and analytics to identify the exact right time that maintenance is needed — no earlier, and no later. Today’s technology makes predictive maintenance more accessible than ever, and the power of this maintenance approach will only continue to grow as data analysis becomes even more effective.
