Two Minute Tips  

What Is A Reliable Asset?

Frederic Baudart | Lead Product Application Specialist, Fluke

When leadership asks if an asset is reliable, they aren’t just asking if the machine is running. Reliable assets combine performance and uptime metrics to ascertain asset availability and reliability. Improving asset reliability can be achieved using a condition-based maintenance (CBM) program, also known as a condition monitoring strategy.

When teams have a CBM program, they use asset health, performance, and current status to determine actions. Teams can attend to the most critical assets more promptly when regular maintenance tasks are based on asset condition, rather than a calendar. Using condition monitoring measurements enables teams to prioritize work efforts more efficiently and effectively.

When implementing an asset reliability program, it’s best to choose a solution that connect teams, data, and systems. This will enable seamless integration of data, increased visibility to maintenance and reliability professionals, and provides more efficient and actionable metrics concerning asset health.
