The difference between preventive vs. predictive maintenance is preventive maintenance is regularly scheduled while predictive maintenance is scheduled based on asset conditions. Predictive maintenance reduces labour and material costs whereas preventive maintenance costs less to implement. The main difference between the two is that preventive maintenance is scheduled at regular intervals while predictive maintenance is scheduled as needed (based on asset conditions).
Because predictive maintenance is performed only when needed, it reduces labour and material costs. However, implementing a predictive maintenance program requires a substantial amount of money, training, and resources up front. These costs are often acceptable to organisations that successfully implement a preventive maintenance program.
What is Preventive Maintenance
Preventive maintenance can be compared to an annual physical check-up. Technicians perform these maintenance tasks when everything is still running smoothly in order to prevent future breakdowns or emergency maintenance issues.
Just like a physical check-up can prevent illness or disease and lengthen your life, preventive maintenance can prevent equipment failures and extend the functional life of your assets. In addition, if you can keep your production lines up and running, you’ll be more profitable as well.
The main challenge with preventive maintenance is balancing the cost with returns. Experienced maintenance managers must make smart decisions on which machines require what preventive maintenance work and how frequently.
What is Predictive Maintenance
Although predictive maintenance is similar to preventive maintenance, this activity requires particular pre-set conditions. In our analogy to human health, this component can be compared with screenings or precautions recommended for an individual who is at higher risk for a particular disease due to hereditary or lifestyle considerations.
If technicians discover that a particular piece of equipment suddenly performs outside normal parameters, they trigger a predictive maintenance protocol to conveniently schedule a repair or prevent future breakdowns.
The Differences between preventive vs. predictive maintenance
Because predictive maintenance is performed only when needed, it reduces labour and material costs. However, implementing a predictive maintenance program requires a substantial amount of money, training, and resources up front. These costs are often acceptable to organizations that have already successfully implemented a preventive maintenance program.
