Plant and Asset Management
Many companies are still not making the most of the opportunity to provide insight into machines by monitoring critical components that are subject to wear and tear. It's often thought that you need to plaster your machine with sensors to get any useful information out of it. Actually, a lot of that information, even basic stuff like temperature, vibration, motor speed and health, can all be accessed via a simple PLC.
How can digital technologies be used in maintenance activities to get benefit? Is connecting to the cloud safe? What can you learn from your machines without getting heavily into machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI)?

This event will include the following sessions:
Holistic monitoring – having a view of your entire plant helping maintenance teams work easily and cost-effectively (Lead: Sally (Ballyn) Sillis, Technology Centre Manager, Schaeffler UK Ltd)

Condition monitoring and RFID Tracking – (Lead: Tony Coghlan, Managing Director, Turck Banner Ltd)

The panel will be joined by Aaron Blutstein, Editor of Plant & Works Engineering, and chaired by Andy Pye, Consultant editor at DFA Manufacturing Media, for a lively discussion covering these and other aspects of advanced maintenance issues, led as always by questions from the online audience.
