Decision making is crucial for the life of many production plants. Good decision need the right information at the right time, and a deep knowledge of the system. This is especially true for older plants that are more prone to failures. Unfortunately, these systems are less rich of monitoring and diagnostics instrumentation, because of their seniority. When the maintenance service is carried out by a group of external companies, they suffer the consequences of backwardness of the equipment, having to deal with problems of poor coordination, delays in interventions and so on. Small and medium enterprises are often in trouble facing these issues so they need dedicated resources in order to offer a maintenance service compliant to the customer requirements.
