A technical installation is then reliably available if it is repaired in a timely manner, i.e. maintenance and repair are done directly. This will only succeed if the company can access appropriate resources. The appropriate skilled workers, spare parts and logistics are present.
If systems are operated without repair due to an unidentified need for maintenance of a component, other components are affected. The subsequent maintenance takes longer and becomes more expensive.
Fast reactions at the right time require reliable detection and prediction of damage events in order to provide the necessary resources as required. The goal is a maintenance strategy that detects faults before they occur and allows optimal maintenance to be planned.
