Plant Engineering Top 5 most read articles online, for March 14-20, covered cognitive computing, predictive maintenance, getting the right data, asset performance monitoring, and preventing VFD faults and failures. Link to each article below.
The idea of cognitive computing demonstrated by IBM's Watson on a game show can be used to help solve the complex problem of complex data in an increasingly complex world.
The integration of predictive maintenance (PdM) and the data generated through the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is expected to pinpoint impending outages before they occur, speed up overhaul processes and avoid production outages.
In an era of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Frontier Technology Inc.'s (FTI) skill set seemed like a great match for the manufacturing sector.
Bentley Systems CEO, Greg Bentley, discussed how the convergence of information technology (IT), operational technology (OT), and engineering technology (ET) is enabling owner-operators to go beyond asset performance monitoring to asset performance modeling.
Following these best practices can help prevent voltage drops, overload trips, and other common VFD faults and serious failures before they occur.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
