Condition-based maintenance uses equipment operating condition to make data-driven decisions. In practice, this philosophy can improve your facility and equipment's quality, productivity, and profitability. Unlike industry courses that focus on applying specific predictive technologies, like vibration monitoring or oil analysis, this course focuses on establishing, managing, and sustaining results from a comprehensive condition-based program.
This course considers predictive maintenance as a component of a larger asset maintenance strategy to diagnose, prevent, and postpone failures. You will learn the theory and application of multiple PdM technologies and review critical success factors of results-producing programs. Through group activities and case studies, you will determine which technologies to use and how to set goals and track progress for your program. Then, you will practice how to communicate results to different stakeholders. By the end of the session, you will have outlined what a successful condition-based program can look like at your organization.
