Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) and CBM + Technology
Prognostic and Predictive Maintenance (PPMx) (U.S. Government program name)
The concept for Condition Based Maintenance is to continuously assess actual vehicle condition through sensors, observations, and portable devices to provide evidence maintenance is needed. While CBM establishes the ability to measure vehicle conditions, CBM+ provides recommendations for optimizing maintenance schedules and strategies with the overall goal of reduced life cycle costs and improved readiness.
Oshkosh has applied CBM and CBM+ methodologies to numerous defense platforms including UK WT, FMTV A1P2, PLS, and JLTV in addition to Commercial fleets including JLG® Lifts, Pierce® Fire Trucks, and McNeilus® Cement Mixers. Oshkosh is leveraging the capabilities established as a whole to advance CBM technology and predictive and prognostic applications within all Oshkosh products.
Oshkosh is committed to advancing CBM and CBM+ technologies within the tactical wheeled vehicle community. Although CBM is mostly associated with vehicles, Oshkosh is also applying this capability to manufacturing equipment. As manufacturing technology continues to evolve, the importance of understanding equipment conditions becomes increasingly critical. Oshkosh has applied CBM to torque tools and programmable logic controllers to monitor critical conditions and conditions that are difficult to measure manually.
