How do you create a culture where condition monitoring flourishes?
Condition monitoring (CM) is the backbone of any proactively maintained enterprise asset management program. How else can you and your team members ward off operational deficiencies and failures without knowing what shape your capital-intensive assets are in? How will you know when to respond to those metrics without real-time awareness? Better yet, how will you know when a response is unnecessary and undermining optimal preventive maintenance spend?
Highly effective CM cultures, however, take diligence, coordination, follow-through and proper resourcing - all things that require a consolidated effort from operators, technicians and floor supervisors.
