Use predictive maintenance to minimize IIoT downtime
In the rush to design and deploy an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform, lone ley measure is often overlooked—efficiency. What exactly is efficiency in this context? For one thing, it has a lot to do with predictive maintenance (PdM), which is a fancy way of saying that you can maintain your industrial systems on your terms, rather than being 100% reactionary. The biggest gain for this method is that you can plan for equipment downtime, and do it when it makes the most sense.
A step-by-step guideline on how to make this work would be ideal. And that’s exactly what the folks at Dell have assembled, in the whitepaper titled Six Steps to Using the IoT to Deliver Maintenance Efficiency.
Following the six steps won’t guarantee you success, but it’s likely to put you in the correct path.
