Moving from Failure Management to True Reliability
Reliability, Predictive Maintenance & Operation Consulting
Is your PdM Program Driving Reliability?
Reliability is defined as the ability of an apparatus, machine, or system to consistently perform its intended or required function or mission, on demand and without degradation or failure.
When deployed properly, predictive maintenance (PdM) programs have been successful in identifying impending failures when the technologies effectively measure current asset condition including any deterioration or degradation.
However, many of the failure modes predicted by PdM reoccur over and over across the asset base. So while the failures are predictable, the end result is not improved reliability.
Enhanced Predictive Maintenance (ePdM) combines a properly designed, installed and managed deployment of predictive technologies with best practices, standard processes, KPIs and data analytics to identify and eliminate most reoccurring failures at their root.
