Predictive maintenance as a promise in the optimization of the use and maintenance of assets has been discussed for decades.
Because of the possibilities that big data offers today, we are on the eve of a new era. With large amounts of data and advanced analysis techniques, it is possible to predict more accurately than ever when an asset is likely to fail and how maintenance can be organized in a smarter way based on data analysis.
The potential of predictive maintenance with big data is enormous: strongly improved uptime, extended life of assets, significant increase in safety for your people and the environment and of course a further reduction of the costs for maintenance.
Research into the use of Big Data
But what about the realization of these promising possibilities in practice? In 2017, PwC and Mainnovation conducted research into the use of big data for predictive maintenance at companies in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany. The insights gained from this research were presented at a special Predictive Maintenance 4.0 event. Interested to know what it means to apply big data to the maintenance of different types of assets and in management processes? Then register for the webinar (free of costs) on Thursday 8 May.
