Condition-Based Monitoring (CBM) — an extension of Predictive Maintenance (PM) — can increase system reliability and productivity and decrease maintenance costs. That means high ROI — which is appealing to every manufacturer. But the machine shop is an increasingly complex “ecosystem” of machinery and technology.
By adopting innovations on the plant floor, manufacturers have improved many aspects of their operations, including line efficiency, product quality, and worker safety, just to name a few. Adding automation and robotics increases the scope of improvements… and adds to the complexity of the ecosystem.
Understanding CBM, implementing precision maintenance techniques, and implementing maintenance management and cost-tracking principles, are effective tools for a pro-active approach to machine shop productivity.
