IoT Basics: What is Predictive Maintenance?

Predictive maintenance is one of the most tangible applications within Industry 4.0. It allows status data to be obtained from machines and proactive maintenance to be carried out on systems. This paper uses a definition and practical examples to explain how predictive maintenance works. Predictive maintenance is an essential pillar of Industry 4.0. By definition, predictive maintenance refers to a maintenance process that is based on the evaluation of process and machine data. It is used primarily in the context of Industry 4.0. The real-time processing of underlying data makes it possible to make forecasts that form the basis for needs-based maintenance and consequently the reduction of downtimes. Besides the interpretation of sensor data, this requires a combination of real-time analysis technology and an in-memory database in order to achieve a higher access speed to the data compared to hard disk drives. If everything works out, a technician can […]
