Have had a couple of requests from customers for condition monitoring systems. They usually drop the idea when they hear the price

Instead of a permanently installed monitoring system, which will be very expensive for the sensors, the cabling and the monitoring hardware, as a cheaper alternative have a set of vibration sensor + monitor that can be installed on a for the purpose prepared measuring point (i.e. a predrilled and threaded hole in the part that has to be monitored). Then have a guy go around monthly and take manual readings.
Combine with thermographic images and you have a reasonably good preventive maintenance regime.

Ahhh, the good old engineering/management disconnect... "what can we do to avoid this happen that doesn't involve any investment whatsoever?"

We have now started installing these on our motors.
Scada system reads and stores all information for analysis.
Not only that.....but we can walk up and connect to unit with Bluetooth to monitor motor performance.
