Predictive Maintenance using Machine Learning

by   Archit P. Kane, et al.

Predictive maintenance (PdM) is a concept, which is implemented to effectively manage maintenance plans of the assets by predicting their failures with data driven techniques. In these scenarios, data is collected over a certain period of time to monitor the state of equipment. The objective is to find some correlations and patterns that can help predict and ultimately prevent failures. Equipment in manufacturing industry are often utilized without a planned maintenance approach. Such practise frequently results in unexpected downtime, owing to certain unexpected failures. In scheduled maintenance, the condition of the manufacturing equipment is checked after fixed time interval and if any fault occurs, the component is replaced to avoid unexpected equipment stoppages. On the flip side, this leads to increase in time for which machine is non-functioning and cost of carrying out the maintenance. The emergence of Industry 4.0 and smart systems have led to increasing emphasis on predictive maintenance (PdM) strategies that can reduce the cost of downtime and increase the availability (utilization rate) of manufacturing equipment. PdM also has the potential to bring about new sustainable practices in manufacturing by fully utilizing the useful lives of components.
