Use Cases Machine Condition Monitoring

Machine Condition Monitoring

Early predictions on equipment malfunctions and service maintenance can be automatically scheduled ahead of an actual part failure by installing sensors inside equipment to monitor and send reports.

Machine condition monitoring is used to determine the condition of a machine with the intent to forecast mechanical wear and failure. The predicted data provides health information about the machine and helps to predict machinery failure. The monitoring equipment tracks changes in temperature, vibration, and output of machines in order to detect an imbalance, corrosion, wear, misalignment, sediment build-up, or poorly lubricated parts.

Condition monitoring has gained importance in line with increased company focus on productivity and asset utilization.

Bosch security systems offer solutions with pre-installed connections in it, which is tested once before it’s made available for sale. Now when they have sold the solution they had to made sure its working and there is no loss in connectivity. Bosch security due to its nature of business has to keep track of where the said device is installed so they can troubleshoot in case of any issues. Now to keep track of more than 10,000 devices is a hard thing if you do not have any reference against devices. Bosch needed a solution where they can add information against each connection about its specific location and could see at a single glance if it's working or not.

- Reduced maintenance costs (better planning)

- Reduced spare parts inventories

- Improved safety

- Improved knowledge of the machine condition (safe short-term overloading of machine possible)

- Extended operational life of the machine

- Improved customer relations (less planned/unplanned downtime)

- Elimination of chronic failures (root cause analysis and redesign)

- Reduction of post-overhaul failures due to improperly performed maintenance or reassembly

 

What business, integration, or regulatory challenges could impact deployment?
Your Answer

What are the disadvantages that must be weighed in the decision to use machine condition monitoring and fault diagnostics?

- Monitoring equipment costs (usually significant)

- Operational costs (running the program)

- Skilled personnel needed

- Strong management commitment needed

- A significant run-in time to collect machine histories and trends is usually needed

- Reduced costs are usually harder to sell to management as benefits when compared with increased profits.
