This article shows the importance of data for the resolution of current problems, through a case study of preventive maintenance of a company’s machines. From a given inspection of the condition of the machines, enough data is obtained to simulate the operation of the machines under specific conditions using  Python programming environment, for a long enough period of time to obtain reliable information about the machines’ lifetime.
