Abstract

With the evolution of Internet of Things and cheap sensors, it is now easier to install fault detection systems in production lines, which can contribute to reducing costs with unscheduled machines down time and unexpected breakdowns. In this study we discuss a fuzzy early warning approach for improving pro-active Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) strategies. The main objective is to prevent production line break-downs or other hazardous situations, before happening, and to support informed decisions on maintenance strategies using historical data. To demonstrate the approach usefulness an illustrative example is presented.
