Condition Based Maintenance and ROI
When considering a condition based maintenance process (CBM), a manager should first review their calendar based preventive maintenance tasks to see which tasks could become CBM tasks. If the equipment has automated control systems with electronic counters, it would be a candidate for integrating it into their CMMS/EAM system to automatically produce a PM service or inspection. This insures the PM will not be performed too often or missed when due.
