IIoT Webcast Four: Preventive maintenance: Technologies, applications, and business models
What IIoT-based predictive maintenance and services means is that an equipment supplier can assume greater responsibility for the condition of its equipment in the field, and a plant manager can monitor key points in production for integration with enterprise systems. The knowledge gained allows convenient scheduling of corrective maintenance that prevents unexpected equipment failures. Real-time data, connectivity and analytics use supports business models that increasingly rely on 3rd-party services rather than in-house resources.
