  Prescriptive maintenance has recently attracted a lot of scientific attention. It integrates the advantages of descriptive and predictive analytics to automate the process of detecting non nominal device functionality. Implementing such proactive measures in home or industrial settings may improve equipment dependability and minimize operational expenses. There are several techniques for prescriptive maintenance in diverse use cases, but none elaborates on a general methodology that permits successful prescriptive analysis for small size industrial or residential settings. This study reports on prescriptive analytics, while assessing recent research efforts on multi-domain prescriptive maintenance. Given the existing state of the art, the main contribution of this work is to propose a broad framework for prescriptive maintenance that may be interpreted as a high-level approach for enabling proactive buildings.
