Predictive maintenance | Software AG
Predictive maintenance provides manufacturers with a powerful solution for maintenance and service logistics optimization, helping to reduce costs, ensure uptime and maintain product quality. Unlike the high cost of preventative maintenance—where equipment is maintained on a specific schedule to avoid the risk of machine failure—predictive maintenance enables you to deploy service teams and equipment parts only when maintenance is really needed.
Software AG provides a leading predictive maintenance solution that combines the Internet of Things (IoT) with streaming analytics and process analytics, making predictive maintenance easily manageable and affordable.
Predictive maintenance with Software AG
Software AG’s predictive maintenance solution enables manufacturers to closely monitor machines with sensors and actuators embedded in the equipment. Using streaming analytics to continuously analyze sensor data and combine it with historical intelligence, this predictive maintenance solution is able to more accurately predict equipment failures and dispatch maintenance services only when they are needed. The solution also takes automated intelligent action to dispatch a part or schedule a technician, monitoring machine performance and field service technicians’ task lists in real time for more dynamic scheduling. The result is lower technician costs, improved service levels and greater machine uptime—all contributing to improved profitability and product quality.
Software AG’s predictive maintenance solution provides significant advantages to manufacturers. With this solution, you can:
- Improve operating margins by decreasing the costs of technicians and maintenance
- Gain real-time visibility into the performance of field service technicians
- Deliver more stringent SLAs and customized maintenance services than competitors
- Improve product quality with higher-performing equipment
- Minimize unplanned stoppages due to equipment failure
- Predict degradation and intervene before equipment performance impacts product quality
