Predictive Maintenance (PdM)
Predictive Maintenance (PdM) is a maintenance strategy that uses data-driven analytics to anticipate and prevent equipment failure. It is a proactive approach to maintenance that uses data from sensors, machines, and other sources to detect potential problems before they occur. Predictive maintenance helps to reduce downtime, improve safety, and increase efficiency by predicting when maintenance should be performed and what parts need to be replaced. It also helps to reduce costs by eliminating unnecessary maintenance and repairs. Predictive maintenance is often used in combination with other maintenance strategies, such as preventive maintenance and condition-based maintenance, to ensure optimal performance and reliability of equipment.
