SYSTEM MODELING AND SIMULATION FOR PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE
Condition monitoring, the process of data collection for the evaluation of machinery performance and reliability, is an essential part of today's on-line predictive maintenance for complex manufacturing systems. Together with the increasing complexity of machinery systems, the number of assets that need to be diagnosed is also rapidly increasing. This is why the management of condition monitoring became a complex cooperation and resource allocation problem. This paper describes an implementation of computer simulation as a modeling and decision support tool for the management of a condition-monitoring service group. The implementation was developed using the SLAMSYSTEM modeling environment. It provides an easily adaptable management-style program that may be applied to a company with a monitoring system that varies in versatility, expertise, and availability.
