Swoop in at the right moment

When is the right time to turn off a machine for maintenance? Is it better to exploit the entire usable life of a device (corrective maintenance) with the risk of machine downtime, or replace still running ones before they die out (preventive maintenance) in order to avoid downtime.

With the advent of Industry 4.0, companies can now monitor the entire production cycle and have a deeper, real-time, understanding of their activities, making preventive maintenance possible. This approach results in considerable savings for companies compared to classic preventive maintenance, as the maintenance itself is only activated if necessary.
