Top 5 Plant Engineering articles, September 25-October 1Plant Engineering’s top 5 most read articles from September 25-October 1, covered cognitive engineering, the next generation of RCM, sustainable buildings, bearing upgrades, and creating a winning plant floor culture. Link to each article below.

1. Cognitive engineering can humanize machines

Already part of some industrial systems, self-driving cars, autonomous drones, healthcare planning, and virtual assistants, cognitive engineering is permeating every walk of life. Optimized systems combine knowledge, contextual awareness, and situational intelligence.

2. Next generation of RCM: A more rigorous tool

Reliability centered maintenance (RCM) must be seen as a strategy, not a software solution.

3. The complexities of industrial, manufacturing, and warehouse facilities: HVAC and sustainable buildings/energy efficiency

Warehouses and factories are more than simply bare-bones buildings for companies to keep equipment. Here, professionals with experience on such facilities offer advice on how to meet and exceed expectations regarding HVAC and sustainable buildings/energy efficiency.

4. Coal-fired power plant slashes maintenance time

Damper bearing upgrade solves lock up issue at a North American plant.

5. Create a winning culture on the plant floor

Maintenance can be improved if companies focus more on improving their operations rather than maintaining what they have.

This list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on www.plantengineering.com, September 25-October 1, for articles published within the last two months.
