Webinar: From preventive to predictive maintenance: How to integrate with your EAM?

Since the Second World War, the maintenance world has gone through numerous processes in order to achieve the best maintenance taking into account the availability and cost of maintenance. In the beginning the adage was, "If it doesn't break, don't fix it" and we ended up with pure corrective maintenance. After that the awareness grew that more maintenance would give a higher reliability and preventive maintenance was introduced, "Time based of Event based". This partly led to too much and often wrong maintenance. At the end of the 60's and beginning of the 70's a study was done in the US for civil aviation by United Airlines supported by the US Air Force on reliability. This resulted in the RCM methodology with a shift to Condition Based Maintenance. Nevertheless this is still maintenance performed through the rear-view mirror. 

Today, many industries are looking at how necessary maintenance can be predicted. After all, this enables an organisation to schedule maintenance interventions in a timely manner before the undesired condition is reached.  This does, however, require a deeper insight into the status of the assets, the so-called "Asset Health". In order for the AI (Artificial Intelligence) algorithms used for this purpose to be able to make good and reliable forecasts, the quality of the data is paramount and there should not be any large gaps in the data. Linking in the EAM (Enterprise Asset Management software system) is therefore essential.

During this webinar, Marcel Van Velthoven and Louis Stoop, both active at Amosa, elaborate on how "Predictive Maintenance" can be successfully introduced in the organization and what it takes to make the step to reliable predictions in maintenance.
