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

How Machines and Robots Learn – the Progression of AI

How Robots Learn – an Interview with Jürgen Schmidhuber

This week, we speak with arguably one of the best-known folks in the domain of neural networks: Jurgen Schmidhuber. He's working on a lot of different applications now in heavy industry, self-driving cars, and other spaces.

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.

Machine Learning in Investment Management and Asset Management – Current Applications

Asset and wealth management firms are exploring potential AI solutions for improving their investment decisions, and making use of their troves of historical data. In fact, according to our AI Opportunity Landscape research into the banking industry specifically, approximately 13.5% of the AI vendors in banking offer solutions for wealth and asset management.

Artificial Intelligence in the Textile Industry - Current and Future Applications

Artificial Intelligence in the Textile Industry – Current and Future Applications

Garment and textile manufacturing have historically been labor-intensive industries, as seen in how many of world’s largest fashion, clothing and apparel brands seem to have a significant portion of their products manufactured in Asian countries such as China, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, etc.

Artificial Intelligence in Supply Chain Management - Current Possibilities and Applications

Artificial Intelligence in Supply Chain Management – Current Possibilities and Applications

Supply chain management (SCM) is critical in almost every industry today - but it hasn't received as much focus from AI startups and vendor companies compared to healthcare, finance, and retail. Businesses are showing increased interest in AI applications, from its benefits to fully leveraging the vast amounts of data collected by industrial logistics, warehousing and transportation systems.
