Ssshhht... We try to listen to our valuable network!
On the question “What is the most valuable information to obtain after the detection of a bearing failure in your rotating equipment?“, our network answered as following.
They tend to focus on how long the machine will still be running reliable instead of focusing on its current stage of severity. How the fault will evolve towards the future seems as well to be less of interest. Apart from its remaining useful lifetime, our network is very interested in finding the root cause of the failure. Comprehensible, as this is the only way to avoid a similar failure mode to propagate in the future!
