WS3: 1-Day Workshop: From Predictive to Prescriptive, But How?

Pieter Van Camp, I-care Guido Verrept, I-care


Many industrial end-users have already implemented a Predictive Maintenance (PdM) program with varying degrees of success. With advancements in machine health monitoring technologies and methods including vibration analysis, ultrasound, thermography and oil analysis, opportunities to deliver greater business impact have certainly improved but watch out! If a PdM program is not embedded with an overall reliability-centered maintenance approach, there is a high probability that the organization does not reach the desired outcome of its program. Why does this happen?

There are multiple reasons at play, but in general, many roads lead to the fact that there is no formal Prescriptive Maintenance approach installed. In this workshop, we will guide participants on their journey to Prescriptive Maintenance and cover the following key areas:

  • Defining Prescriptive Maintenance and its connectivity with a Predictive Maintenance
  • What are the necessary steps to enable a Prescriptive Maintenance approach
  • An introduction to I-plan; an interactive game that simulates a real shutdown with all the typical challenges of a real one; spare parts management, resource restrictions, quality issues, problems with contractors, challenges in scheduling, work execution management, etc.

Gain insights into how they could get the maximum benefit of their Predictive Maintenance program.
