A Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) program has become a key strategy in any maintenance/reliability improvement effort. In this webcast Dharmen Dhaliah provides an overview about how value can be realized from a CBM program.Depending on the industry and the complexity of its asset a large percentage of maintenance tasks are condition-based. On-condition tasks or predictive maintenance tasks are the preferred tactics to apply when it comes to proactive maintenance. However they are not inexpensive when technologies such as vibration analysis, infrared thermography or oil analysis are required. As maintenance/reliability practitioners we fully understand the benefits of investing in a condition-based maintenance program. Our biggest challenge is how to consistently demonstrate those benefits at different level of organization to keep the program alive.
