An organization with unique maintenance needs will have to operate under a unique maintenance strategy. Even the most typical maintenance schedules make a significant difference in the likelihood of an organization’s success within their niche. The way in which these maintenance efforts are usually focused is through a preventive or predictive stance. Preventive maintenance is likely the more common strategy of the two and has been a cornerstone of the manufacturing industry for some time. Preventive maintenance is a blanket maintenance strategy that covers all pieces of equipment through regularly scheduled, calendar-driven maintenance on all pieces of equipment. New innovations in technology have made its counterpart, predictive maintenance, a much more viable option. This strategy disregards the regularly scheduled maintenance of its counterpart. Instead, it employs a particularly complex system of technologies attached to the IoT to collect data on each piece of equipment or machinery in an organization’s fleet. This data is then analyzed in real time to indicate when a piece of equipment would require maintenance. As a result of new low-or no-maintenance components and technologies, predictive maintenance strategies are becoming much easier to implement in manufacturing operations.
