Remote Analysis

Remote analysis

In today’s challenging economic climate, industries are continually looking for ways to maximize the return on their maintenance investment. It has long since been accepted that condition monitoring provides the best opportunity for early defect detection and root cause identification and is the staple for the majority of targeted failure mode-based maintenance strategies. The difficulty many organizations face during the development and implementation stage is that the correct resources and specialized skill sets are not available on-site. Many organizations also find it cost prohibitive to build this capability on their own and from the ground up.

Remote Analysis is a predictive maintenance application method that utilizes an organization’s on-site resources for technology- specific data collection and off-site contract resources for data analysis.

This hybrid approach reduces the time and travel requirements for contracted services, enabling a lower cost solution. This shared application also utilizes the unique expertise of ,all participants, allowing for a quick ,implementation with highly skilled resources, which can generate rapid results.

Remote Analysis has three major qualities:

  • Customized levels of involvement
  • Flexibility
  • Analysis of various technologies including vibration analysis, mechanical & electrical infrared, ultrasound, oil analysis, etc..

What Benefit?
