Improved Scheduling and Traceability in Manufacturing SMEs by IoT-based solution

Nowadays, the adoption of IoT technologies by SMEs is still in infancy due to the lack of simple and powerful solutions to be assimilated. Current management of documentation and silo-based information in many SMEs is supported on manual operations leading to several faults such as incomplete data about a particular reference, annotation errors, loosing of […]

How are evolving maintenance solutions into companies Industry 4.0 roadmaps?

maintenance

Ideally, predictive maintenance allows the maintenance frequency to be as low as possible to prevent unplanned reactive maintenance, without incurring costs associated with doing too much preventive maintenance. Predictive maintenance is a technique that uses data analysis tools and techniques to detect anomalies in your operation and possible defects in equipment and processes so you […]

Could SMEs obtain benefits from implementing condition-based monitoring?

predictive_analytics

Condition based monitoring (CBM), in general terms, consist in monitoring one or more parameters, from process or machine, in order to identify significant changes with the aim to prevent or avoid failures. CBM is usually part of the predictive maintenance strategy that allows to estimate the real condition of an asset, extracting information from its […]
