IoT DIGITALIZATION TRENDS TRANSFORMING MACHINERY MONITORING & MAINTENANCE EFFECTIVENESS

Gary Foster,
SKF SERVICES and Solutions

 

The Internet of Things (IoT) has transformed how people communicate and live. We see this in everyday family and social life, personal business, and politics. It’s debatable to what extent this transformation is progressing to improve life, but there is no debating that digital technology change is real and immense. Consider the explosive or “disruptive” affect that Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Uber, Airbnb, etc. have on how we live, especially shaping the changing habits and views of generations from Boomers to Millennials, proving again that change is a dependable constant in life.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a fascinating source of attention and debate during the past 12 to 18 months, with equally transformational effects looming on how companies function and adopt business strategy to deal with, or capitalize on, emerging IIoT induced technologies and work flows. This presentation will provide a view into what IIoT technology trends may mean to our businesses, and reliability maintenance today.
We will attempt to pull from the IIoT and Industry 4.0 buzz and hype, present real world examples of how Supplier Strategy, Machinery Owner / Operators, and Machine Manufacturers are currently dealing with transformational change influenced by Industrial Digitalization.

HOW TO IMPROVE FLEET MANAGEMENT

Mike  vorster, C.E.M.P. Central, Inc.
