14 Reliable Plant Anniversary Edition | www . CONDITION-BASED First Seen in Reliable Plant Digital Magazine, May 2023 Erik Hupjé | Reliability Academy Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) technologies are some of the most sold solutions in the maintenance industry, and with the recent interest in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Industrial Internet of ings (IIoT) combined with Predictive Maintenance (PdM), the market has expanded substantially. It's easy to understand the reasons why organizations opt for CBM or PdM solutions, such as: • e market tells us these platforms can identify failures months before they happen. • AI tells them what to do and when to do it. • e software is relatively simple to use. • e software integrates well with their current CMMS. Clearly, these CBM and PdM platforms are the best things since sliced bread. But the truth is when a reactive organization invests in one of these solutions, it rarely delivers the promised result, and the organization continues to experience too many unacceptable and preventable failures. Here's the shocker — it's not because the technology is faulty or that the vendor has delivered a poor-quality solution. e problem is that most reactive organizations are not ready to manage the solution they purchased. ey are too reactive and too busy with today's emer- gencies to respond to the information their CBM system is providing. In the rest of this article, I will discuss Condition-Based Mainte- nance in greater detail, why you can't achieve a reliable plant without it, the reason why most CBM efforts fail, and what you need to do to ensure that your Condition-Based Maintenance delivers value to your organization.
