It has the following advantages for our customers:

• Status-oriented maintenance replaces time-based maintenance
• Plannable machinery and plant downtimes based on real drive and process data
• Reduction of service and material costs
• Longer service life of components and machine
• Increase in system availability
• Avoidance of unplanned downtimes
• Plannable and cost-optimised repair
