According to a report from McKinsey Global Institute on the Internet of Things (IoT), Predictive Maintenance can lead to a savings of anywhere from $200 billion to $600 billion for manufacturers by 2025. Yes, this is spread throughout a large number of manufacturers that are producing a wide variety of parts and products, but it is still a HUGE number that cannot be ignored.
The goal of any Predictive Maintenance program is to develop a clear and efficient strategy that will improve Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) and ensure that machines are meeting all safety requirements. A successful Predictive Maintenance program and any Machine Monitoring Systems will enable not only your machines to stay running but also protect your most valuable asset, your employees.
In the past, Predictive Maintenance Programs have been deployed on a manual basis. Each machine has a specific schedule of when a service task needs to be completed. Once completed, the individual performing the task will make a note on a spreadsheet, checkbox, or report that confirms when and who this maintenance task was completed by. Unfortunately, when a shop, foundry, plant, or facility becomes busy, Predictive Maintenance can take a back seat to get parts out the door.
While this may make sense at the time, in the end many companies suffer the consequences when maintenance tasks are pushed down the priority list. It’s also very easy to simply forget when a maintenance task is due? Unless you have the luxury of having a specific individual monitoring a maintenance schedule and then enforcing the adherence to the maintenance schedule, you can also fall behind on maintaining your equipment.
The best way to overcome any issue related to Predictive Maintenance neglect is through the integration of a machine monitoring system. One such option is CADDIS Systems. CADDIS is designed to not only manage your machine utilization and OEE, CADDIS Systems also provides the ability for companies to deploy a Predictive Maintenance Program within the software which allows a company to build a history of Predictive Maintenance tasks completed. Those responsible for maintenance tasks receive a text or email alert when a task or service is due and then the ability to make a note of when the task was completed and provide any additional comments that relate to the task or machine serviced.
CADDIS Systems is a simple and cost-effective solution that will guarantee you a return on the investment. By integrating CADDIS Systems into your production environment you will see a number of benefits.
Just a few of these benefits include:
- Fewer large-scale repairs and the number of all repairs will decline.
- Increased overall machine productivity and life span.
- Less capital investment by eliminating premature machine replacement.
- Decreased downtime
- Better project planning and scheduling as a result of machines continuing to run.
- Increased safety for staff and all those exposed to the machines.
