The reputation of an organisation is often built through hard work on improving quality, reliability, delivery time and price. In this paper a graphical method for the selection of a cost-effective monitoring technique is suggested. This graphical method is also used to select the most cost-effective replacement vibration level, when a vibration-based maintenance is implemented, i.e. when the available data are mainly condition-based replacement. This method is based on the concept of the Total Time on Test, TTT-plot. The use of this method is explained by three examples.
