Real-time Ultrasound and Vibration data indicate changes in healthy function earlier in the P-F Curve than other condition monitoring technologies. Advanced warning allows every maintenance job to be planned while reducing levels of critical spares held in inventory. Reliability teams benefit from a proactive culture that affords them time to eliminate defects rather than simply applying band-aids.
