Condition-based maintenance (CBM) is a maintenance strategy to monitor and spot upcoming equipment failure so that maintenance can be proactively scheduled whenever needed. Asset conditions need to trigger maintenance requests in advance, so that any maintenance work can be completed way before the asset fails or performs below the optimal level.
In time-based, the interval is based on an average or best guess rather than the actual condition. A Routine checkup work order can be created for an equipment in production at an interval of every 2 weeks to locate the wear and tear. Based on the findings a decision can be taken on whether to repair it or not.
Assume that an equipment needs corrective maintenance if the temperature rises above a certain value. Internet based sensors promptly report and log such data and monitor them continually. With the available data one can set a threshold limit for each of the sensors. Whenever a sensor reports a fault in limit, a work order is created and assigned to a technician.
With these steps done, critical equipment is continuously monitored for data-reads and work order is created and assigned based on configuration.
