Effective maintenance programs are vital in manufacturing, energy and utilities, and other asset-intensive industries—preventing equipment failures that lead to costly downtime and repairs. Smart organizations have shifted toward predictive maintenance strategies. Instead of periodically checking assets and replacing parts on fixed schedules, companies are now using artificial intelligence (AI) to identify warning signs of impending issues before they cause damage or outages. This approach can help extend asset lifespans, extract the full value of equipment and parts, and avoid unplanned outages.
