CRL 1-hr: Nov 7 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

IMC Presentation (43:58)

Cris Crosby, Aveva

When it comes to everyday challenges in operations and maintenance, like improving PM (planned maintenance) completion rate, AI/ML (artificial intelligence/machine learning) is often relegated to experimental solutions to justify “big data” initiatives that eventually fail to deliver real value.

AI/ML can help but only when you resist the hype and discard the notion that predictive maintenance is the only analytics-based use of IoT data or that you need prolonged PoCs (proof-of-concept) to validate the AI/ML approach. The oft-heard “just give me all your data, let’s put it in a data lake and we’ll figure it out…” fails to recognize and incorporate existing knowledge about your plant-floor machinery and process - leading and lagging indicators for equipment failure, signal vs. noise in the data, P-F curve, machine-condition data vs. process data, and others.

What works is a layered, fit-for-purpose approach to analytics – simple, automated engineered-analytics (first principles, SME (subject-matter-expert) heuristics, basic math, STATS101 including simple predictive) combined with AI/ML analytics where it is a must for its unique capabilities and multivariate models. Even here, purpose-built proven off-the-shelf AI solutions ease operationalizing and enterprise-wide scaling for improved equipment reliability and optimized maintenance practices. Join us for this session as we walk-through the steps needed to transform AI/ML into an operationalized solution.

We will discuss success stories from different industries where customers have benefited from a layered, fit-for-purpose analytics and a sober mix of “usage-based”, “condition-based”, “simple-predictive” and “advanced-predictive” maintenance. Several customers have also been successful in implementing their own centralized monitoring and diagnostic centers to improve asset reliability without elaborate DevOps/MLOps cycles.

All facilities and infrastructure assets deteriorate with time and use. To maintain the effectiveness and value of an asset, renewal work should be performed periodically, and when the asset has reached the end of its functional useful life, it should be replaced.
