Predictive maintenance such as friction checks, backlash and stifness of an axis

I know there are certain frictions which need to be compensated for. So the applied torque is Ballscrew torque + Coupling friction torque.

However, overtime I expect the friction torque to increase. I wonder if I could alert the operator through the predictive maintenance which is supported by certain drives (in my case I am using indra drives) of any such changes such as stiffness of the axis or friction. How do we set this up in indra drives?

Many thanks for support
