Condition based monitoring (CBM) is a maintenance strategy that monitors the actual condition of the asset to decide what maintenance needs to be done. CBM dictates that maintenance should only be performed when certain indicators show signs of decreasing performance or upcoming failure. Checking a machine for these indicators may include non-invasive measurements, visual inspection, performance data and scheduled tests. Condition data can then be gathered at certain intervals, or continuously (as is done when a machine has internal sensors). Condition based maintenance can be applied to mission critical and non-mission critical assets.
Unlike in planned scheduled maintenance (PM), where maintenance is performed based upon predefined scheduled intervals, condition based maintenance is performed only after a decrease in the condition of the equipment has been observed. Compared with preventative maintenance, this increases the time between maintenance repairs, because maintenance is done on an as-needed basis.
Our goal here at LBJ Industries Condition Based Monitoring Services is to spot upcoming equipment failures so maintenance can be proactively scheduled when it is needed and not before. Asset conditions need to trigger maintenance requirements within a long enough time period before failure, so maintenance can be implemented before the asset fails or performance falls below the optimal level.
