How do most plant maintenance personnel characterize their overall maintenance strategy for the electric motors operating in their facility? EASA posed this question in the 2014 end-user customer research project. The most common response (42%) was “reactive maintenance.” Another 30% described their strategy as “preventive maintenance” defined as “performed primarily following a prescribed program.” Another 20% characterized theirs as a “predictive maintenance” strategy that is one “performed pursuant to a monitored/condition-based criterion.”

EASAns may assist customers in following any of these strategies. However, some important insights came from a series of follow-up questions that tried to identify future trends in these strategies and any corresponding outsourcing opportunities.
