Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) is something our team get asked about a lot, from where do we start to what monitoring techniques do we use, to how do we analyse the data and can we integrate with our CMMS.

We previously looked at how to get started, and then at potential standards to use for monitoring, and in this latest article we are going to take a deeper dive into how our experienced and expert team can support your journey towards CBM excellence.

Adopting Condition-Based Maintenance can be transformative, reducing unplanned downtime and optimising maintenance costs. SSG Insight offers advanced services and software solutions to help organisations worldwide implement and manage effective CBM programs. Here’s how SSG Insight can support your journey towards CBM excellence.

1. Advanced CMMS Integration
SSG Insight’s CMMS (Agility) integrates seamlessly with various condition monitoring tools. It provides a centralised platform for managing maintenance activities based on real-time asset condition data.

This includes but is not limited to:

  • Real-Time Data Integration: Connects with sensors and monitoring systems to gather and analyse condition data
  • Automated Alerts: Generates automatic alerts when condition parameters deviate from set thresholds
  • Maintenance Scheduling: Automatically schedules maintenance tasks based on asset condition, reducing unnecessary maintenance

2. Comprehensive Condition Monitoring Solutions
SSG Insight partner with various providers of sensors and IoT devices which integrate directly with Agility CMMS, for example:

  • Vibration Monitoring: Ideal for monitoring vibration in rotating machinery and enables you to analyse vibration data to detect imbalances, misalignments, and bearing faults
  • Temperature Monitoring: Incorporates temperature sensors and thermographic tools to detect overheating in components such as bearings, motors, and electrical systems
  • Pressure Monitoring: Pressure sensors and monitoring solutions for systems like hydraulics, compressors, and boilers, detecting anomalies such as leaks and blockages
  • Oil Analysis: Monitors oil quality and contamination levels to detect wear and lubrication issues early

3. Data Analytics and Predictive Maintenance
The Agility CMMS / EAM software uses advanced analytics to predict potential failures before they occur. It supports you to analyse historical data to identify patterns and trends that indicate emerging issues. This in turn provides decision support for you and your team in the way of actionable insights and recommendations based on data analysis, that allow you to make informed decisions.

4. User-Friendly Interface and Reporting
The user-friendly dashboards have intuitive interfaces that present condition data clearly and concisely. This makes it easier for you and your maintenance teams to monitor asset health and identify issues quickly. You can customise these reports to see the data your organisations needs for things like detailed reports on asset condition, maintenance activities, and performance metrics.
