Knowledge lost in data: Organizational impediments to condition-based maintenance in the process industry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

In this chapter we report on a pilot study of Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) in the process industries, such as the steelmaking- and chemical industries, and propose a diagnostic instrument for systematically analysing the challenges to the successful implementation and execution of a CBM program. Although the field of predictive maintenance is growing and considerable research effort has been targeted to the technical aspects of CBM, we observe that many firms in the process industry do not yet systematically use advanced CBM approaches. This research therefore aims to contribute to our understanding of the contextual barriers (beyond the technical issues) that hinder organisations from employing condition-based maintenance programs to improve their asset management.
