It takes Pacesetters two steps to optimize their maintenance efforts. First they automate their realtime
data acquisition and storage using standards-based software applications. Second, they
implement CBM systems that assess equipment health based on timely and accurate information.
This enables Pacesetters to prioritize their maintenance efforts by moving human and capital
resources away from well functioning equipment to areas that scream for early attention.
While at first it might seem that Pacesetters’ accomplishments are currently out of reach, most
corporations are indeed surprised to find out that these steps are easier to complete than initially
perceived. Using commercial-off-the-shelf software and standards-based applications, such tasks can
be completed economically and provide exceptional add-on value to the CMMS installations.
