English term or phrase: condition monitor
We will not PM what we can condition monitor through predictive maintenance tools such as vibration, infra-red, lube-oil, ultra-sonic thickness testing, et al.

(PM = preventive maintenance)

Zustandsüberwachung / ...dessen Zustand durch ... überwacht werden kann.
Explanation:
The English is dodgy at best, but I think the meaning is that they will waiver preventive maintenance in favour of monitoring the condition using other means (predictive maintenance tools).
