Use Case

Predictive and preventive maintenance

Your FM team faces challenges in prioritizing maintenance issues across your portfolio. It’s because they are managing disparate systems with unstructured, inaccessible data and their technical expertise only goes so far. As a result, deferred maintenance risk adds up and equipment lifespan shrinks.

With fault detection and diagnostics (FDD), facilities teams
can track and triage the issues that are having the most impact.
When FDD includes preventive maintenance algorithms,
facilities management can shift from the costly break-fix
service model to directed and validated problem response.

How would your FM strategy change with predictive maintenance?

With predictive maintenance, you have:

  • Reduction in disruptions to end users and building occupants by limiting the number of break-fix issues.
  • Analytics that can do the heavy lifting for you by utilizing historical data to better understand the root cause issue from all angles and inform the fix faster.
  • Dispatchers who can validate that service work completed on a specific issue has actually resolved the root cause problem.
  • The ability to achieve and report on maintenance cost savings objectively and automatically.

Without predictive maintenance, you're experiencing:

  • Building staff who are inundated with urgent requests from occupants or moment-in-time alarms that are not directed towards root-cause resolutions.
  • Small, inefficient equipment operations that have turned into large operational problems, high energy bills and looming capital expenditures.
  • Quirky design constraints that are reducing equipment lifespan because they require such specific operating conditions that are rarely, if ever, actually achieved.
  • Mildly uncomfortable environments that have turned into unsafe places to life and work because maintenance teams are always too busy putting out fires.

While your teams may already be using maintenance and management tools like computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) and outsourced specialist services, these processes are expensive and prone to error with little opportunity for oversight.  

An integrated fault detection, predictive maintenance and work order system saves time and money by combining normalized data with comprehensive FDD algorithms that monitor the operation of connected equipment at a level that makes it possible to predict issues before they happen.
