CBM Benefits: A Brief Refresher

Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) is a very approachable methodology that can unlock massive potential for organisations. It's not just maintenance teams who benefit either - their are operational benefits too. There is a reduced risk of assets failing when needed and costs are significantly decreased leading to more money for other projects and more.

Why organisations don't greenlight wireless condition monitoring projects

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.

Why CBM is relevant for TPM & RCM Practitioners

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.

Condition Based Maintenance Requires Real Time Condition Monitoring

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.

Continuous Condition Monitoring Case Study – Fertiliser Manufacturing

One of the key benefits of continuous condition monitoring is that it acts as an early warning system – giving maintenance teams advance notice of subtle changes that, if left unattended could degrade into more permanent damage or a failure. In late June, one of our chemical and fertiliser manufacturing customers provided feedback to us about an alert they received.
