From Basic Maintenance to Advanced Maintenance

  • Lorenzo Fedele


Condition monitoring is the activity of evaluating the current condition of a plant or apparatus, obtained through techniques that range from the use of complex computerised instruments to the exploitation of human sensitiveness, for the purpose of preventing breakdowns and implementing maintenance only in the presence of a potential breakdown and when it is most convenient on the basis of the production schedule (Williams et al. 1994).
