Maintenance for Improving Manufacturing Equipments Availability Using Prognostics and Health Management
There is a growing need for improving manufacturing equipments availability to achieve high levels of productivity. As a key complement to CBM and RCM, PHM is becoming a key enabler for achieving cost effective ultra-reliability and availability in tomorrow’s manufacturing equipments at an affordable cost. Based on traditional maintenance strategies, key issues pertaining to PHM application to manufacturing equipments, including health monitoring, diagnostics and prognostics, are discussed in this paper. As an example, a method for dynamic MFOP based maintenance strategy optimization using PHM and RUL estimation is presented.
