Maintenance Strategies in the Era of IIoT

By Kim Custeau, AVEVA |

The shift from reactive to prescriptive maintenance can be greatly aided by advanced digital tools and the implementation of an effective pilot program To be successful in today’s industrial business environment, companies in the chemical process industries (CPI) must maximize profitability across both asset and operations lifecycles. That means continual focus on everything from how an asset is designed and engineered to how it is operated, maintained and kept running with optimal availability and uptime. At the same time, the enterprise must also optimize every second of its operations lifecycle to stay competitive. The industrial internet of things (IIoT) continues to enable smart equipment and increase access to data. While data collected by sensors have become priceless assets to the enterprise, the ability to make sense and use them to drive new insight is where the real value lies. To improve asset performance and reliability, CPI companies are leveraging the combination of data and many different types of predictive and prescriptive maintenance strategies. FIGURE 1. To optimize maintenance costs, engineers must consider which assets truly require the investment for advanced programs, and which non-critical assets can…
