Happy Lunar New Year! And a happy belated 7th birthday to us! MOVUS was founded on Jan 27th, 2015. It's amazing how time flies!
We're in the business of deploying wireless condition monitoring to critical, fixed rotating assets. So naturally, we regularly come up against objections and reluctance. Change is scary, and so many organisations seek safety and security in maintaining the status quo. So I thought I'd take the time to discuss the common reasons organisations don't move forward with condition monitoring solutions.
Happy New Year! I hope 2022's treating you better than 2021 did. I don't know about you but I'm looking forward to slamming the door behind this whole COVID thing on its way out.
When we speak about different maintenance methodologies, we often see them displayed on a maintenance maturity curve or a matrix. Each methodology is generally discussed as a stepping stone to another, or as a singular method to achieve certain objectives.
However, it is important to remember that maintenance approaches can be synergistic when applied correctly. Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) is a great example of a methodology that is particularly effective when used on its own, but is a fantastic support to other approaches. The best example of this is how CBM fits in with Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) philosophy and Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) approaches.
Here's why practitioners of these methodologies shouldn't sleep on CBM and should explore ways to level up their approach.
As part of the Australian Government's Energy Efficient Communities Program, Food & Beverage Manufacturing Business Grants have recently been announced.
If you're undertaking a reliability centred maintenance approach - or any maintenance program that requires condition monitoring - and only monitoring a handful of assets, you're likely shooting yourself in the foot. Of course, you likely rank equipment by criticality, but it's important to ensure you're getting the full picture of your fleet health. Utilisation, energy efficiency and overall fleet condition are particularly useful metrics for organisations.
The numerous benefits of condition based maintenance make it an attractive proposition for organisations. Here we highlight how CBM can save you money, increase your asset lifecycle and remove the burdens from overworked maintenance teams.
Good Morning. It's that time of the year. Holiday season!
Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) is just that - repairing assets based on condition data (ideally ahead of failure). Most leading practitioners agree that in order to implement a true CBM approach, organisations need to be monitoring their equipment continuously, in real-time. Otherwise they are still running closer to traditional, routine maintenance approach.
Good morning! Today's first order of business: A very happy Halloween and Diwali to all those who celebrated!
