Visual inspections application for predictive and Condition-Based Maintenance

Visual inspections app

Unlocking the power of visual inspections in predictive maintenance

Visual inspections are the most fundamental, intuitive, and easy-to-implement technique in an industrial plant's condition-based maintenance (CBM) strategy. Visual inspections play a crucial role in CBM, involving monitoring equipment performance and asset management to determine the most cost-efficient time for maintenance. They are used to identify issues with assets before they worsen, informing preventive maintenance tasks, eliminating downtime, and decreasing unnecessary costs. In CBM, visual inspections are combined with other condition monitoring techniques like vibration, ultrasound, oil analysis, and thermography to collect data on asset conditions. Visual inspections are also integral to predictive maintenance, making them a critical tool for maintenance professionals.

[1] Design your visual inspections in Power-MI

Configure inspection parameters for fieldwork

Set up the parameters that the inspector will need to gather in the field. You can configure any magnitude, type of parameter, and alarm levels, allowing the inspector to fill in the information quickly and see on the spot if the parameter is in alarm or not.

Visual inspection design
Visual inspection checkpoints

Create inspection guidelines with checkpoints and detectable failures

Design your inspection guidelines by establishing checkpoints and possible detectable failures. This facilitates the inspector's work by providing a clear check-list to follow during the inspection.

Establish workplace hazards for inspection locations

Define the occupational risks of the inspection site to ensure that the inspector is always working safely and is informed of the risks they may be exposed to during the inspection.
