Article Abstract

The application of advanced technology through predictive maintenance programs (PMPs) has a major impact on product quality, customer satisfaction, and machine safety. While the proposed European Standard of Documentation on Maintenance will increase the presence of maintenance in the total quality culture, there is, to date, no international standard for establishing a PMP. Procedures for setting up a PMP should include a continuous improvement process, audits, and a corrective action system. Also needed is a standard for the acquisition of predictive data and a manual to serve as document support. A good PMP can help any company improve quality and productivity at little expense. A sidebar article lists the advantages of setting up a PMP.
