Analytics help in reducing machine downtime

Machines are important in any manufacturing industry. As wear and tear of the machines are obvious, a preventive maintenance program is vital to i) reduce machine downtime, ii) get the overall view of the health of the machine and iii) estimate the cost of the maintenance.

The preventive maintenance can be done with the help of a Predictive Maintenance program, also known as PdM which includes the techniques of Predictive Analytics. Different sensors installed in the machine provide inputs to the Analytical Software from which the degradation process can be understood. This will help in predicting different failure modes of the machine.
