Following the Data Journey for Ongoing Asset Reliability

September 19, 2018 | 10:00 am CDT

Data Journey for Asset Reliability

Traditional asset reliability programs rely and focus on periodic assessments and interventions. Expert audits rank asset criticality and then develop preventive maintenance programs and perform failure root cause analysis, often after the fact of mechanical breakdown.

New technologies now enable a deeper, ongoing understanding of system performance, potential equipment failures and specific local factors that may contribute to equipment underperformance or failure. These technologies include the growing availability of sensor data, less expensive data acquisition and storage, advanced computing technology, and the wide availability of machine learning/data science tools and techniques used to rapidly analyze, understand and improve system reliability.

This webinar will outline the primary elements of the data journey of a reliability system and provide specific examples of how to implement and manage such a system, as well as the key benefits of such an approach.

What We Will Cover

The discussion will focus on a few key elements:

  1. Data Capture
  2. Applied Models and Methods for Performance Assessments
  3. Business Process Analysis with Data to Provide New Equipment Insights

Desired results to be discussed and explored include:

  1. A deeper understanding of asset performance vs. averages
  2. A continually improving detection system for equipment condition
  3. The ability to augment existing reliability and maintenance programs with new data-driven approaches, including machine learning insights based on empirical models
  4. How live analytics allow organizations to understand the essence of the physical behavior of the equipment in operation in its full complexity
