Abstract Condition-based maintenance (CBM) is one of the most recent maintenance strategies developed and applied in production plants. Recent advances in technology have permitted to introduce continuous monitoring in industrial production systems. This paper investigates the monitoring of a real bottling plant introducing an economic function of the CBM. Many papers have developed several total maintenance cost functions in case of CBM, mainly based on the deterioration process of the analyzed systems. In this research, the failure probability of the studied system has been correlated directly to the monitored signal, which is the absorbed current, without the modeling of deterioration process. The optimal threshold has been defined using two different mathematical models in order to minimize the total maintenance cost. Finally, the behavior of the models has been investigated. Some limitations and future researches have been discussed at the end of this paper.
