WHY IS PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE SO HARD?
Companies can eliminate sudden failures, reduce unplanned downtime, increase machine life, optimize scheduled maintenance, and reduce replacement activities with Predictive Maintenance. Why, then, is the implementation and deployment of PdM so misunderstood and littered with failures (over 80 percent according to one study)?
In this paper, we look at the origins and evolution of PdM maintenance, our years of experience and what we’ve learned, and how all of this informed our own Senseye PdM solution.

PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE IS ABOUT MORE THAN ALGORITHMS
Most experienced maintenance engineers already have a detailed mental picture of the machinery they care for. They know whether a rattling valve means a breakdown is imminent, for example, or if it is safe to ignore it until the next scheduled shutdown. If a predictive maintenance system can tap into this pool of knowledge, it can learn to provide the best possible support in the decision-making process.
This white paper looks at the importance of a user-centric approach to predictive maintenance, the lessons we can learn from other industries, and how Senseye focuses on meaningful outcomes for users.

IS YOUR SECTOR RIPE FOR SERVITIZATION?
Servitization has become a successful contractual model in aerospace and defense industries in recent decades, and today there is enormous potential to roll out similar servitization agreements across other industries. If servitization is so great, why has it been largely confined until recently to high-risk, high-value ‘edge applications’ such as aerospace and defense?
This white paper looks at why now is the perfect time for end users and OEMs to embrace servitization, the role Industry 4.0 plays, and why cost and scalability are no longer obstacles preventing servitization from being rolled out across many otherwise promising sectors.

ELIMINATE OVERSPENDING ON MAINTENANCE
Unplanned downtime can cost businesses dearly, so it’s no surprise that downtime reduction tops most wish-lists when it comes to making the switch from planned to Predictive Maintenance (PdM). However, there are other big rewards on offer.
For maintenance professionals, the consequences of over-maintenance maybe harder to measure, but eliminating it can make a big difference to operating costs.
This white paper looks at whether over-maintenance can be avoided, how PdM can help eliminate maintenance overspend, and the welcome boost PdM makes to the bottom line and the ROI industrial companies can expect.

PROGNOSTICS: GOING BEYOND CONDITION MONITORING
Prognostics is about forecasting the risk of failure long before there is an operational impact, providing a time to the failure (Remaining Useful Life, RUL). It is achieved through combining condition indicators to determine a degradation indicator that is modeled and tracked.
This white paper explores some of the background of prognostics, what questions to ask when evaluating a prognostics tool and how technologies such as the Industrial Internet of Things are helping to make it accessible.
