Many companies install and maintain machinery that is dispersed over a large geographical area.
Service contracts for those machines stipulate maintenance according to fixed time schedules which is usually suboptimal and
involves a quite high financial cost to these companies.
Furthermore, in case of problems, remote troubleshooting can be challenging because of the lack of data or visibility of what is going on.
Evolving from reactive to predictive maintenance
Predictive maintenance can resolve issues related to fixed maintenance schedules or pure reactive maintenance. Predictive maintenance allows to detect problems upfront or as soon as they occur and resolve problems proactively. Predictive maintenance relies on data analysis to optimize maintenance schedules, avoid downtimes and optimize services costs.
