    How to transition to automated condition monitoring

    How do you know when you’re ready to take advantage of software like Senseye to automate the analysis of condition monitoring data from your machinery?

    Change is uncomfortable, implementing new technology, and the associated process change and cultural changes bring significant challenges as well as benefits, even if all goes smoothly. Whilst manually analysing Condition Monitoring is useful, moving to fully automate analysis allows factory and organisation-level scalability. It’s important to be sure that the correct systems and assets are in place to support this new way of operating.

    A brief history of maintenance

    “You can’t fix something that isn’t broken” used to be the philosophy of traditional Reactive Maintenance, many years ago. Help was only called for once a machine had completely failed.

    How much should my company invest into condition monitoring and prognostics?

    Condition monitoring (CM) and prognostics solutions can be costly, it’s easy to spend than the cost of the machinery – but how much should you be spending and how do you know that the solution represents good value? When considering investing in a predictive maintenance solution, it’s important to understand the potential savings for your business before looking at how much to budget. If the numbers don’t add up, then you may need to rethink your CM ambitions.

    What is predictive maintenance and how to get started with Senseye

    You’ve heard the hype and it all sounds very impressive. But what is predictive maintenance and what is it best used for?

    For optimal performance, all factory machinery needs to be maintained and companies often have maintenance agreements in place, usually with the original machine manufacturers or their approved service network. Whilst useful, these agreements are largely service-interval schedules, which don’t take into account actual usage and so do little to prevent unplanned downtime. This is the widely-used preventative and reactive maintenance model:

    Reduce machine downtime, embrace prognostics

    It’s an unfortunate fact of reality that no-matter how advanced the equipment, there will come a time when the machine unexpectedly fails and your factory experiences losses caused by unplanned machine downtime. The costs of this can vary dramatically; from over $1.5M per hour in automotive manufacturing to thousands per hour in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry; no-matter the cost it’s still extremely undesirable.

    What is Servitization and how does Predictive Maintenance help?

    Servitization is a relatively new term in the industrial sector but it’s quickly picking up a following; with The Manufacturer magazine even dedicating a whole series of conferences to it. In a sentence, it’s the concept that any product / offering, can be delivered ‘as a service’ (e.g. by the hour or unit) rather than as a discrete product + maintenance combination. A classic example of this is Rolls-Royce in the 80s shifting its business to a ‘Power by the Hour’ model where no longer would they simply sell jet engines and warranties, they would instead offer the operator flight-hours – the responsibility would then be entirely on Rolls Royce to deliver the contracted number of hours whilst achieving certain availability metrics.
