Although we almost exclusively think of preventive maintenance as our ‘go-to’ proactive strategy, it is important to note that predictive (PdM) and condition-based maintenance (CBM) are additional elements of a solid proactive maintenance program, even more so with the ease at which some predictive tools can be operated and the low cost/benefit breakpoints of some technology affordability.
I’ve had many discussions over the years centering on the place for and the meaning behind CBM or Condition-Based Maintenance. I would like add some thoughts to this and I feel we owe it to ourselves and our organizations to build a process that works for our locations, despite some of the differences in the terms we use.
