Condition Based Monitoring

Condition Based Monitoring (CBM)

CBM is a maintenance strategy that involves monitoring the
condition of equipment. CBM helps to prevent costly downtime and repairs, increase equipment reliability and availability, and extend the lifespan of the equipment. By implementing a comprehensive CBM program, companies can achieve significant cost savings and improve the overall performance of their equipment.

To implement CBM, a company needs to establish a comprehensive monitoring program that includes the following steps:

 Identify critical equipment: Determine the equipment that is essential to the operation of the plant or facility and prioritize it for monitoring.

 Define monitoring parameters: Determine which parameters need to be monitored to detect potential issues.

 Establish data collection methods: Determine the sensors and other equipment needed to collect data on the identified parameters.

 Analyze data: Use software or other tools to analyze the data collected to identify trends, patterns, and anomalies that may indicate a problem.

 Schedule maintenance or repairs: Based on the analysis of the data, schedule maintenance or repairs to address any potential issues.

 Continuously improve: Continuously review and improve the CBM program to ensure it remains effective and meets the changing needs of the organization.
