Smart Maintenance – Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies neatly streamline all areas of the value chain in companies

The ideal solution is achieved through the tactical combination of Smart Manufacturing and Smart Maintenance. Smart, innovative technologies such as smart sensors, edge computing, big data and artificial intelligence (AI) ensure that all assets in production operate at 100% efficiency.  For example, assets are now equipped with industrial smart sensors such as the Sushi Sensor for data acquisition. These IIoT sensors transmit the data to computer-aided maintenance management systems. These systems use advanced analysis options such as AI or cloud-based machine learning to determine the complete data pool in order to ultimately deliver results in real time that can be called up at any time from a smart device. In this way, anomalies can be quickly detected and immediately communicated to the appropriate employees. The tasks of Smart Maintenance include. monitoring and knowing the condition of the assets. In addition, there is the dedicated planning of maintenance and the improvement of the performance and effectiveness of the resources.

Communication in our Times – New Work: Remote Communication

Plants and work processes are becoming increasingly complex in industry and require service and maintenance staff to have very extensive knowledge. In the course of product development, increasingly intelligent concepts are being developed. These are designed to help service and maintenance staff to be supported remotely by an expert in complex work processes with the aid of “smart technologies” – specifically with mobile devices. With the help of these “smart technologies”, problems that arise can be transmitted very quickly to another location on earth in the form of multimodal information – i.e. films, graphics, pictures or explanations – adapted to the situation. We are talking about Remote Communication.

Optimisation? Of course! – Part 3 of 3

The potential for innovation through digitalisation and its digital technologies is infinite – especially with regard to Synaptic Business Automation. With the entrepreneurial innovation mindset and methodologies like the SBA, many ideas can be found and implemented. Against this background, it is of course indispensable that the security foundation is laid in digital terms – keyword: Plant Security.

Optimisation? Of course! – Part 2 of 3

In the first part of this series we have dealt with the question of what is meant by “optimizing” in this context and whether it is worthwhile to “optimize”. If one has come to a positive result for oneself, the question now arises, which possibilities there are. The following presentation of possibilities in the second of a total of three articles in this series certainly does not claim to be complete, but is intended as an incentive and source of ideas.

Optimisation? Of course! – Part 1 of 3

With regard to optimization, it is often a matter of finding a consensus as to what optimization can actually be. This three-part article will also take a look at the resources available for this. Whether it is worthwhile to optimize and if and what the whole thing has to do with Industry 4.0.

AR and VR offer enormous potential – including for the process industry

#BLOG Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality – even if their exact meaning is certainly not familiar to everyone, today at least everyone should have heard of these two terms before. And this mostly in connection with video games like #Pokémon Go, #TV and movies. Or perhaps with a view to architecture, sports, medicine, navigation, (flight and driving) simulation, learning, art, photography, or entertainment in general.
But both augmented and virtual reality have long since found their way into the (process) #industry. There, they are used in industrial applications, maintenance, medicine, learning or #work safety. #AR #VR #AugmentedRealitiy #VirtualReality #automation #security #safety
