IIoT, Smart Industry and Artificial Intelligence for Manufacturing

IIoT, Smart Industry and Artificial Intelligence for Manufacturing

The RELIABILITY Conference Learning Session - 39:21 
by Rajiv Anand,

In the manufacturing and industrial world, Industry 4.0, Smart Industry and Industrial IoT have created a lot of buzz lately. In software and computing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and Big Data are at the top of the hype cycle. Digital transformation and the digital enterprise are on the top of the strategic initiatives list of every board room and C-suite.

While IIoT and Smart Industry have the potential to transform entire supply chains, initial successful implementations focus on maintenance and asset reliability. Predictive maintenance is thus being transformed to prescriptive maintenance by combining existing and new condition monitoring sensors with Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition.

Is it all just hype and the fad of the season or as transformational and disruptive as it is being hyped up to be? How will it impact manufacturing, industrial maintenance and reliability, and the people responsible for running these operations? As a maintenance and reliability professional, what should I be preparing for, learning and applying to enable my company to benefit from this technological revolution?

This presentation will address why and how maintenance and reliability professionals should embrace these technologies and be the leaders for the digital transformation of their companies.

The talk will address some of the following topics:

  • That maintenance and reliability professionals and domain experts will now become some of the most valuable contributors to an enterprise's supply chain.
  • The technology will not--as hypothesized by fear mongers--replace humans. It will enable and empower humans to focus on creative and high value, rather than mundane contributions of their skills and expertise to advance the manufacturing industry.
  • That some of the unfulfilled value creation potential of reliability practices like RCM and Operator Driven Reliability.
  • That it is not as complicated, scary or risky as some laggards would have you believe; nor does it require everyone to become data scientists and programmers to implement it.
  • While cloud computing is one of the key enablers, Smart Industry does not mean running all your applications in the cloud.
  • That we can all begin our journey of learning and starting to apply these technologies today; without disruption to our existing operations and work processes.

Operator Driven Reliability and Ultrasonic Inspection

Operator Driven Reliability and Ultrasonic Inspection

Operator driven reliability (ODR) is a process that involves operators in the maintenance and reliability of their equipment. ODR selects tasks previously performed by maintenance technicians and reassigns these tasks to operators. However, ODR is only effective when operators are focused on specific tasks. Operators must be properly trained and coached in the performance of each task.

IMC-2015 RAP Talk - 19:50
by Joseph Paris, Founder of the Operational Excellence Society

Each of us belongs to a community, or network. The individual members of a network have a shared commitment and affinity to the kernel. As such, they will behave in a predictable manner since there is nothing to gain by any individual changing their position unilaterally. In reality, to disturb the predictability never even crosses the mind of the members.

Applying Game Theory and the Nash Equilibrium, this session will investigate the circumstances under which change takes place – and when it does not. We will discuss the creation of an effective disruptor and how it can be deployed in a controlled and sustainable fashion. We will also touch on the human dynamics aspect of the Dunning-Kruger Effect which states that a person will pursue a path out of ignorance and with great confidence until it is glaringly apparent that the path is wrong, at which time their confidence deflates before the process of rebuilding can occur.

Industrial Predictive Analytics for Improving Asset Performance: Bridging IT and OT

Industrial Predictive Analytics for Improving Asset Performance: Bridging IT and OT

IMC-2015 RAP Talk - 19:35
by Greg Bentley, CEO- Bentley Systems

In today’s operations of industrial facilities and infrastructure assets, operations and maintenance professionals need effective strategies to benefit from an unprecedented volume of “big data”. It is streaming in from the “Internet of Things”, (sensors and meters on equipment, structures and assets), from UAVs able to perform continuous surveys and inspections, and from market sources. The challenge lies in transforming all that data into meaningful information and operational visibility, which can inform decision support and improve asset performance.
