How maintenance teams are using tiered maintenance, wireless tools and IIoT data management to get around the barriers to predictive maintenance implementation.
The combination of tiered maintenance, wireless tools/sensors and integrated technician/manager data management is allowing teams to move past long-standing barriers to predictive maintenance implementation. By reducing the level of difficulty and therefore the perceived degree of change and hardship, these techniques allow teams to implement a scaled approach to reliability, reflective of available resources and priorities. This paper evaluates how tiered maintenance is being applied and where it’s successful; examines the role that ease-of-use and automatic data capture plays regarding wireless thermal, vibration and electrical test tools and sensors; and assesses the workflows between technician and manager, with IIoT-facilitated data management and communication at the core.
