Component Forecasting

Brandeis Machinery partners with you to track major components on high hour, production machines.   Together with our Product Support Representatives (PSR’s), and tools like Komtrax and KOWA oil sampling, we can utilize our Component Forecasting System to manage and plan component exchanges.  The benefits to you include the following:

  • Scheduled downtime
  • Assurance of parts availability
  • Lower costs by exchanging before failure

The Brandeis Component Forecasting System helps customers avoid costly repairs by providing information necessary to schedule component replacement before a failure occurs. Replacing components before a failure typically cuts the machines total repair costs by approximately 25 -30%.  This system was developed with the understanding that “Prevention is Better than Reaction” and that scheduled downtime leads to more efficient operations. 

If a failure is impending, the warning is then supported with an oil analysis for use in subsequent evaluations with the customer to design the best course of action with minimal interruption to production schedules. Throughout this process, stock outs of critical components are eliminated and uptime is maximized.

Another benefit of the Component Forecasting system is that it can be used as a  planning tools for financial budgets as well as planning for future events and budgeting of major repairs or change outs when the machines are not assigned for work.

Combining Component Forecasting with dedicated, trained PSRs gives you both the data and service you need to ensure you have limited downtime with machines running at their optimal performance levels.
