Title: Stop walking through the maintenance mine field with your eyes closed. The financial justification for a CM/PDM program

Abstract

Before getting started on what a well thought-out condition monitoring/predictive maintenance (CM/PDM) program for any coal company should look like, it is important to try and justify it financially. To make an educated decision on an expected return on investment (RoI) a mine or plant manager should break the problem down to its simplest form. By employing predictive technologies the effect of any failures to equipment will be minimised. 4 figs.
