About this title
This book gives an overview of Predictive Maintenance Management. Predictive maintenance detects deterioration, analyzes it, and predicts future deterioration. Analysts, using the predictions, act to limit deterioration and prevent complete failure. Some complex equipment may never fail completely if properly maintained. Parts and components of the complex equipment may fail or be replaced to prevent their failure, preserving the equipment as a whole from failing to accomplish its designed function. To make good predictions, plant personnel must make a long-term commitment to systematic collection, analysis and presentation of the right data.
