Losses – a part of manufacturing resources, which was used without return, production, and even wasn`t used, ie wasn`t functioned, was idle. If an equipment item can not be replaced during repair, there appear production downtime, so the company stop producing, receiving marginal income, and also spend permanent situational costs. Finally, if the failure of a particular equipment item due to lack of observability leads to the destruction of several (all) equipment units, causing an accident, such as an explosion or fire, this situation, in addition to the above mentioned costs, can injure the staff, damage the environment and, as a result, cause critical resources losses of the enterprise.
Monitoring – observation on changes of an object state on order to alert the staff about its limit state during closely adjacent to each other time intervals during when the object state doesn`t change significantly. This means the systematic collection and processing of information that can be used to improve decision support system and as well as for feedback and evaluation.
Resource-saving safety of production involves of the entire fabrication staff in process of diagnostics and elimination of situational costs as main factor of the growth of resource consumption and losses at the enterprise. Observability of wear factors of basic production assets as the main reason of a substantial increase of use of material and labor resources is of great importance. Monitoring of factors of the situational costs, timeliness and purposefulness of resource-saving actions provides objective information environment of organizational and economic mechanism for cost-effective use of resources.
