AI at General Electric

Artificial Intelligence and Digital Twins at General Electric

General Electric (GE) was founded in 1889 by J.P. Morgan and Anthony J. Drexel who came together to finance Thomas Edison’s research and merge their companies together. Originally, GE was an industrial and consumer products company but today, more than 130 years later, GE has transformed itself into a multinational, digital industrial corporation ranked as the 33rd largest company in the United States by gross sales in 2020, according to Fortune 500.

Understanding Predictive Maintenance in Manufacturing

Understanding Predictive Maintenance in Manufacturing

The hypothesis is simple:

Equipment breakdowns or downtime is extremely expensive (imagine a train broken down on isolated tracks, hundreds of miles from the nearest depot)
Heavy equipment (engines, wind turbines, manufacturing machines) produce various streams of data (heat, vibration, time-series, etc)
Machine learning could be used to detect "failure patterns" in that data, helping businesses to maintain equipment health more effectively

Artificial Intelligence In Industrial Automation – Current Applications

Accenture forecast the Industrial Internet of Things could contribute $10 trillion to the global economy by 2030. The report also suggested that sensors, material tracking mechanisms, 3D printing, automated product design, robotics, and wearables could help manufacturers reduce costs and increase productivity. Predictive asset maintenance could potentially reduce equipment and machinery maintenance costs by up to 30% and result in up to 70% fewer breakdowns.

Predictive Analytics in the Oil and Gas Industry - Current Applications

Predictive Analytics in the Oil and Gas Industry – Current Applications

McKinsey reported that most oil and gas operators have not maximized the production potential of their assets. A typical offshore platform, according to the 2017 report, runs at about 77% of its maximum production potential. Industry-wide, the shortfall comes to about 10 million barrels per day, or $200 billion in annual revenue.
