Predictive and Proactive Reliability Maintenance

Predictive Maintenance

Predictive/Proactive maintenance
Predictive Maintenance (PdM) is a process aimed at detecting a machine condition that will eventually lead to failure and then estimating the amount of time before failure occurs. 

Unlike most PdM programmes, which stop at detecting a problem and making a residual life prediction, SKF uses this information as the basis to diagnose the problem. Our main objective is to determine which proactive tasks are necessary to achieve an extension of machine life.

Proactive Reliability Maintenance

An SKF Proactive Reliability Maintenance (PRM) service contract applies best practice predictive maintenance activities and other processes to diagnose root causes of failures systematically. SKF then takes steps to help eliminate reoccurrences. The process includes using performance indicators and operational reviews to help you reach industry benchmarks.
