Increased uptime drives more throughput, and more throughput creates more capacity, which drives profits. That’s a great theory, but getting more uptime is a tough goal to reach. Better use of data in an era of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is one clear path to achieve this goal. But what data do you need to predict and prevent downtime before it occurs?

Join Plant Engineering to discuss the latest strategies around the effective use of data to drive prescriptive maintenance. This CEU-accredited Webcast will focus on practical ways data management is being used today to achieve cost savings and improve maintenance operations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of maintenance as a profit center where processes are managed and optimized, as opposed to a cost center where invoices are paid.
  • Look at the areas where profit can be derived in the maintenance process.
  • Understand the difference between predictive, preventive and prescriptive maintenance, and when each strategy should be used.
  • Look at how new data, in particular the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), is changing the way maintenance is measured and managed.
