Manufacturers understand that maintenance is a make-or-break activity, especially in high-dollar, fast-moving, and high-competition verticals. Maintenance strategies of times past (such as reactive or calendar-based maintenance) simply can’t cut it in today’s fast-moving world. Manufacturers still using these practices are quickly falling off the map.
Modern maintenance utilizes technology including IoT to drive maintenance activities with real-time data, enabling better predictions and actionable insights. By connecting the maintenance team to everything that’s happening on the shop floor, manufacturers can amplify their ability to identify failure before it happens, target flaws in equipment at their root, and keep assets running at their best so companies can achieve and maintain a key competitive advantage.
While that all sounds good, the question bears asking: How do you take your manufacturing company from a state of reactive maintenance to predictive and prescriptive maintenance? How do you reap the benefits of a modern maintenance strategy while avoiding pitfalls along the way?
In this webinar, members of MachineMetrics and Fiix will discuss how to build a roadmap to maintenance automation, as well as demonstrate the power of their new combined offering that enables manufacturing teams to monitor the health of equipment in real-time to automatically trigger maintenance activities.
