Condition-based monitoring is at the forefront of modern manufacturing technology, allowing for a data-driven approach to maintenance. Predictive maintenance is distinguished by its proactive nature. It has the ability to spot a problem early on and fix it before it becomes a failure.
The following are the essential differences between preventive and predictive maintenance:
• Preventive maintenance is performed on a consistent schedule, regardless of whether or not the upkeep is required.
• Predictive maintenance is performed as needed, based on real-time data gathering and analysis of machine operation data, to discover concerns early on before they cause production disruption.
