Reliability teams are responsible for monitoring the health and performance of machines and equipment in many manufacturing and industrial settings. These teams help prevent unplanned downtime and improve operational efficiency, but they are often stretched thin by emergency requests, long distances to walk, and machines not operating when passed by as part of a route.
Emergency requests can divert resources away from planned maintenance activities and require rapid response times to address critical issues. This puts pressure on reliability teams who are trying to keep up with both planned and unplanned maintenance tasks. Another challenge is the distance between machines and equipment. It can be physically demanding and time-consuming to effectively monitor and maintain all of the equipment in a reliability team’s care.
By integrating machine health monitoring, industrial operators can increase productivity without the need to hire additional staff to perform tasks that can be managed by an IIOT system. For example, a machine health monitoring system can automatically track the performance of critical equipment, detect anomalies or issues before they result in downtime, and alert maintenance teams to potential problems. This reduces the need for manual inspections and maintenance tasks, freeing up reliability teams to focus on other priorities.
The Machfu Machine Health Monitoring System dynamically monitors and maintains the performance of your mechanical assets through Bluetooth-enabled sensors and real-time analytics. This means you can keep things running with lean reliability teams and keep them focused on critical tasks.
