Top 5 Plant Engineering content over the past week covered digital MV switchgears, successful warehouse plans, leveraging industrial data and more. Links to each article below.

1. Digital MV switchgears improve manufacturer efficiency, sustainability

Digital medium voltage (MV) switchgear adoption is growing in the U.S. and offers many potential benefits for manufacturers. See tips on how digital MV switchgear changes how power is being adopted and potential benefits and barriers.

2. Five phases to developing a successful warehouse automation plan

A successful warehouse automation plan must have worker buy-in, a thorough plan and strong implementation and support.

3. Leveraging the full power of industrial data

For data to have real value to today’s automated manufacturing plants, industrial networks need critical tools to access and deliver the data to critical operational and analytical platforms.

4. To pick the right drive, ask the right questions

Selecting a drive, whether for a new application or to replace an existing one, doesn’t have to be a traumatic experience.

5. Sensing a better maintenance solution for pump systems

Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) can support better maintenance and improved OEE for pump systems.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on plantengineering.com, March 11-17, 2024, for articles published within the last two months.
