The First Step in AI Based Predictive Maintenance
With the increasing demand of IIoT in the age of digitalization, data-driven maintenance optimization of industrial equipment is one of the most trending topics among maintenance professionals. At the beginning, data gathered by various sensors placed on the machines or embedded in the machine itself are pre-processed.

Why Is an EAM Migration the Perfect Time to Correct Your Failure Codes?
If you are planning an EAM migration, then this is the perfect time to correct your failure codes. If your failure codes are not set up correctly this can impact your company’s maintenance and operations. The ideal time to correct your failure codes is before you load your master data into your new EAM system. By verifying your failure codes are set up correctly prior to your EAM migration, you will have ensured that the new EAM you are implementing is set up to support good maintenance practices.

The Relation Between Reactive, Run to Failure (RTF), and Corrective Maintenance (CM)
Failure-based Maintenance (FBM) is unscheduled maintenance or repair to return the asset to a defined state. There are no interventions until a failure has occurred. This includes the Reactive Maintenance and the Run to Failure (RTF) Maintenance. Many are not differentiating between the above-mentioned types of Maintenance and use the two terms as alternatives.
