Today there is a tendency in the industry to move to Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) strategy, due to the remarkable improvement in Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) it offers. The modern way of introducing CBM is to use e-Maintenance technology in order to have the information always where it is needed, i.e. by the machine which needs maintenance.
