Predictive maintenance is organized monitoring with periodic or continuous measurement of system status variables and their comparison with pre-established patterns. As a result, it is possible to determine when the preventive maintenance intervention should be performed.

ADVANTAGE

Optimal determination of the time to perform preventive maintenance: the use reserve of parts and equipment is maximized, management of spare parts inventory is improved, and corrective emergencies are minimized.

Execution without interrupting or altering the normal operation of facilities and equipment.

Improvement of knowledge about the operation and structure of the system.

Improvement of the control of reliability of the elements and obtaining of supplementary information for the manufacturers.

DISADVANTAGES

Limitations when carrying out the work derived from the need not to remove the machine from its normal operation during the analysis process.

Higher initial investments: the amortization of a predictive maintenance system is initially expensive due to the incorporation of technological equipment.

Need for a very high level of training for technicians. They should be familiar with the handling of measuring equipment and know in depth the operation of the machines.

Remember:

Today, electricity is one of the most important resources in the modern world. Regardless of the type of company you have, surely electricity is an integral part of your daily operations. Although electrical systems are complex assets, we must understand that they are expensive and that they require effective maintenance to operate optimally.

In addition, electrical systems are extremely dangerous. For this reason, electrical maintenance work must be carried out by qualified personnel; therefore, security must be one of the highest priority concerns.
