Global competition and fast innovation cycles in most industrial branches require steadily increasing productivity at the lowest possible cost. Decisions in favor of or against an investment are also based on the overall life-cycle costs of a plant or a machine.
The requirement to increase production whilst maintaining high quality, keeping deadlines, combined with low expenditure for maintenance and service, is a great challenge for the industry sector. Producers and OEM’s thus share the same goal: to have a reliable, continuous operation of all systems at minimized costs.
