Detect malfunctions in
systems and machines,
before they occur.
With Predictive Maintenance, you can detect critical machine conditions in time before actual faults and production downtimes occur. Not only is it possible to predict when and where a fault might occur, but you are also supported in identifying the fault. With this procedure you will receive answers about the condition of your machine, when a failure is to be expected, which component will be affected, why the failure occurs and how you can avoid a failure.
Predictive Maintenance uses historic data of an asset to train a model for statistic analysis and machine learning. These models can be used to predict future behavior of the asset and help identify critical machine states to take countermeasures.

What is it about?
Basic concept of Predictive Maintenance
Data collection at the production units
A production unit is equipped with a number of sensors and therefore monitored during operation. The resulting measurement data is stored in a database. They provide a complete historical description of the activity of the production unit and its environmental conditions. In addition, all occurring failure and maintenance events are recorded.
A mathematical model description of the data is generated by a computer-based analysis of the available data set. Special machine learning algorithms are used, which can automatically detect the correlations and patterns contained in the measurement data and map them with regard to the analysed faults.
By applying the learned model, a prediction for the future occurrence of errors can be made on the basis of the currently recorded measurement data. In the probability of critical operating states occurring, a warning can be issued in good time. This knowledge then flows into the planning and implementation of the next maintenance measure. In this way, components requiring maintenance can be replaced before they can fail, thus endangering the entire production process.
