What is proactive maintenance?

Proactive maintenance is a preventive maintenance approach that operates to correct the root causes of error and to prevent breakdowns induced by the circumstances of the machinery.

Proactive Maintenance, This type of treatment helps improve care through actions such as better design, workmanship, installation, scheduling, and maintenance procedures

The characteristics of proactive maintenance include implementing an ongoing development process, using feedback and communication to ensure that the design/procedure changes made by the designer/management are effective, ensuring that no maintenance effects occur in the overall isolation, with the ultimate goal of optimizing and combining methods care with the technology in each application.

Proactive Tasks:

These are duties carried out before a failure happens to avoid the object from entering a failed condition.

These tasks further classified into,

  • Scheduled restoration
  • Scheduled discard
  • On condition maintenance

Scheduled restoration:

Remanufacturing or overhauling components at or before a particular age threshold, irrespective of their situation at the moment.

The frequency of a scheduled stage of regeneration 8 is determined by the era at which the unit or part shows a fast rise in the likelihood of conditional error.

Scheduled restoration tasks are possible if:

  • There is an identifiable age at which the item shows a rapid increase in the conditional probability of failure
  • Most of the items survive to that age
  • Tasks carried out restore the original resistance to failure of the item

Scheduled discard tasks:

Discarding an item, regardless of its condition at the time, at or before a specific life limit.

Scheduled discard tasks are possible if;

  • There is an identifiable age at which the item shows a rapid increase in the conditional probability of failure
  • Most of the items survive to that age.

Here the item is replaced with new one so that resistance to failure come to original condition.

On condition maintenance

Activities are conducted to identify the errors that occur or are happening in the system. In order to prevent the consequences, action can be taken.
