The top 5 most read articles online, from July 15-21 for Plant Engineering covered alarm management tips, maintenance process redesign, NFPA 70E advice, digitizing reality, and smart manufacturing. Links to each article below.
Alarm management has been a great success for the process industry. Initial challenges have largely been met, but new challenges have emerged. Alarm management is most effective as an operations tool, not a safety tool.
Set the stage for a successful transition from manual to IIoT-enhanced, predictive maintenance processes.
Best practices for mitigating arc flash and combustible dust hazards.
Digitizing reality is now possible for workers thanks to technology advances such as the Internet of Things (IoT). This new reality allows workers to benefit from augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and virtual reality (VR) to solve old problems in new and better ways.
Smart manufacturing and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled technologies can use real-time data to optimize processes and reduce costs for manufacturers.
The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on plantengineering.com, July 15-21, for articles published within the last two months.
