Updating my pm and pdm programs
When upgrading SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional from one release to another, the Task Add-in does not automatically get upgraded.This Add-in should always be upgraded whenever you upgrade the PDM software.PM programs must balance asset availability with maintenance needs to minimize downtime while prolonging equipment life though, in order to maintain productivity and profitability.Predictive maintenance (Pd M) lowers costs and increases overall reliability when done properly.Predictive maintenance differs from its cousin preventive maintenance because it relies on the actual condition of equipment, rather than average or expected life statistics, to predict when maintenance will be required.Pd M evaluates the condition of equipment by performing periodic or continuous (online) equipment condition monitoring.By knowing which equipment needs maintenance, maintenance work can be better planned (spare parts, people, etc.) and what would have been "unplanned stops" are transformed to shorter and fewer "planned stops", thus increasing plant availability.
This is in contrast to time- and/or operation count-based maintenance, where a piece of equipment gets maintained whether it needs it or not.Predictive maintenance (Pd M) techniques are designed to help determine the condition of in-service equipment in order to predict when maintenance should be performed.This approach promises cost savings over routine or time-based preventive maintenance, because tasks are performed only when warranted.The NH HSEM monitors the Plans in NH which are soon to expire and inserts the greatest number of community Plan updates across the State as possible into current Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) grant rounds.
These PDM funding rounds have more limited funding available across the country and to NH, so fewer Plans are able to be updated each round.
But Pd M can be expensive and requires experience and skills that many organizations lack.
