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. In short: the appropriate skilled workers, spare parts and logistics etc. are present.
If the company continues to use an asset with an unrecognized component maintenance requirement and does not repair it promptly, troubleshooting often becomes even more expensive. It may then also other parts of the system affected and the maintenance takes longer accordingly.
In order to be able to react as quickly and correctly as possible, a reliable detection and prediction of damage events would be ideal. In this way, the necessary means for economically optimal maintenance can be kept available as needed. The aim is therefore a maintenance strategy that recognizes possible errors before they happen and thus enables the planning of optimal maintenance.
