Your Maturity Result: 1

At this moment, things could be looking better. Limited digital processes are in place, there is restricted access to the data generated from the machines and processes. Additional sensors and improvements to the operational/information technology infrastructure need to be made. There is a limited willingness towards the digital transformation from the management side. No data-driven maintenance strategies utilized for analytics.

There is a lot to be improved, but fear not, taking the first step towards data-driven maintenance is always the hardest.

How You Benchmark Against the Industry

Looking at the Scale of the Basics of Cbm and Pdm to Advanced Implementation, We Can Distinguish Four Different Levels

Level 1: Visual Inspections

Periodic physical inspections, where conclusions are solely based on inspectors’ expertise.

Level 2: Instrument Inspections

Periodic inspections, where conclusions are based on a combination of inspectors’ expertise and instrument read-outs.

Level 3: Condition Monitoring

Continuous real-time monitoring of assets where alerts are given based on pre-established rules of critical levels

Level 4: Big Data/Advanced Analytics

Continuous real-time monitoring of assets, with alerts sent based on predictive techniques and predicting future events.

Market Position

Looking at the market, there is no shortage of ambitions, ambitions are high. A majority of companies is planning to use data-driven predictive maintenance at some point in time. Where one in three companies (33%) wants to do something within the next 5 years. However, currently two thirds (66%) are still at level 1 or 2. Another 23% is at level 3, already continuously monitoring asset conditions in real-time. Only 11% has achieved level 4, monitoring assets in real-time and predicting future events.
