A large number of companies worldwide look back on decades of operating history and tradition. Therefore, it is not uncommon for the production facilities to operate machines that are more than 20 to 30 years old. In some cases, these machines produce highly important products, which, in case of failure, can lead to a severe problem for the company.
As the equipment operates successfully at present, entrepreneurs often do not see any particular reason to take action. However, when it comes to failure or defect, it sometimes causes serious consequences. Experienced employees who are familiar with this old technology and who could take action in such an event increasingly retire - and with them the necessary knowledge about the machines.
