Predictive Maintenance

What Is Predictive Maintenance?

Why it matters, how it works, and getting started

Predictive maintenance is an approach to maintaining operational industrial machines such as jet engines, wind turbines, and oil pumps using predictive algorithms. These predictive algorithms use sensor data and other relevant information to detect anomalies, monitor the health of components, and estimate remaining useful life (RUL). With predictive maintenance, you can schedule maintenance at just the right time—not too early and not too late.
