Getting Started with Predictive Maintenance

When organizations look to truly embrace predictive maintenance they have three questions that must be answered in order to move forward. These questions are the basic decisions that you need to make to get moving in the right direction.  All of this is contingent upon your facility having processes for identified work planned, scheduled, and executed because without this, predictive maintenance will not be as effective. Simply put, you need to answer what, where and who. What technologies need to be employed, where in the plant and by whom? Once you know this you can begin to build your process, business case and justification to proceed.
