Prescriptive Maintenance: The Next Generation of MRO Efficiency

Prescriptive Maintenance: The Next Generation of MRO Efficiency

The term “prescriptive maintenance” is derived from the principle of prescriptive analytics. This concept is a step past predictive maintenance; it not only supplies the possible outcomes in a situation, it also gives the best avenue to pursue based on analysis of those outcomes. This mode of strategy basically allows computing models to “think” for themselves, removing the guesswork for MROs and optimizing efficiency in an industry under tight deadlines. While already in use within…
