ASI provides cost-effective comprehensive PdM services including:
PdM Program Development & Planning
Condition Monitoring System Design & Installation
Thermal Imaging (Thermography)
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)
Motor Circuit Analysis
Predictive Algorithm Development
When applied properly, PdM is one component of an optimized support program that should be integrated and coordinated with the entire asset management program. Predictive maintenance, when applied to failure modes that have been evaluated through RCM analysis or maintenance engineering processes, provides a real-time indication of equipment condition allowing maintainers ample time to react prior to function loss or catastrophic failure. The Department of Energy’s Operations and Maintenance Best Practice, Release 3.0, estimates that a predictive maintenance program, initiated from a totally reactive program, could provide upwards of 35% to 40% reduction in downtime. Predictive maintenance programs allow for the full benefit of the planning and scheduling function to be realized.
PdM technologies provide near real-time, accurate, and reliable equipment condition information for effective decision making.

1. US Army Medical Facility
We developed and implemented a comprehensive RCM and CBM based maintenance program that included assessment of facility equipment for PM Optimization, Criticality and Risk Assessment, PdM opportunities, analysis of appropriate technologies for specific equipment and failures, and comprehensive development, installation, and implementation of a Predictive Maintenance program. The resulting program included vibration analysis, oil analysis, infrared imaging, ultrasonic emission testing and motor circuit evaluation for critical equipment. Implementation of this program achieved a marked reduction of maintenance Man-Hrs by 39%
2. Major US Airline Data Center
We implemented an intensive and comprehensive maintenance program for a large data center that included complete equipment evaluation and analysis that resulted in an RCM justified preventive maintenance program utilizing the latest in predictive maintenance technologies and evaluation. This analysis of a new green field project successfully developed an optimized PM plan for critical electrical equipment that included complete Maintenance Task Analysis, PdM Plan and Lock Out-Tag Out procedures. An expected reduction of approximately $160,000.00 should be realized from original PM program costs with full implementation of the optimized Preventive and Predictive Maintenance program.
3. F-35 Prognostics and Diagnostics
We are part of the development team for a fully comprehensive condition based and prognostic health diagnostic and mitigation program for the F-35 Program Office. These efforts include the use of data supplied by both onboard and adjunct sensors, the latest data collection techniques, and algorithm development to provide prioritized, probabilistic and predictive information to the management team. In addition, Business Case Analyses (BCA) are conducted to determine the viability and benefit of proposed improvements.
Additional Predictive programs have been developed for heavy industry including manufacturing and precision machinery, mining, mineral processing facilities, and facilities infrastructure.
