How to optimise operation and maintenance of your fleet of machines? Try a data-driven approach!

The exploitation of data collected on a fleet of machines is a real asset for maintenance and service personnel and, at a larger scale, for an entire company. The Sirris Data Innovation team will present the opportunities and the challenges related to this topic during a seminar on 24 October.

Most companies operate a set of machines that have a similar, almost identical behaviour in terms of internal operation, application and usage, such as for example windmills, compressors and professional vehicles. This set of almost identical machines is defined as 'a fleet'.

More and more, those machines are equipped with several sensors, that can capture data on operational temperature, vibrations, pressure and many other features, depending on the machine. In addition, the communication and data storage technologies are becoming ubiquitous, making it possible to gather the data in a central platform and derive insights into normal and anomalous behaviour across the entire fleet of machines. By comparing for example the behaviour of a single machine to the rest of the fleet, one can identify if a machine is underperforming due to misconfiguration or imminent failure. The analysis of this data can also help service and maintenance personnel to have a more detailed and optimised maintenance planning, e.g. ensuring an optimal distribution of the entire fleet in terms of remaining useful life, in order to manage the work load of the service engineers. Therefore, the exploitation of the data collected on a fleet of machines is a real asset for maintenance and service personnel and, at a larger scale, for an entire company.

Do you want to know more about fleet-based analytics for data-driven operation and maintenance optimisation? Then our half-day seminar on 24 October is exactly what you are looking for! Via real-world use cases and presentations by companies such as Barco, Atlas Copco, 3E, Maintenance Partners, Pepite and Ilias Solutions, the Sirris Data Innovation team will present to you the opportunities and also the challenges related to exploiting the data collected from a fleet of machines to its full potential.
