24/7 Critical Asset (high cost of downtime)
Prevent failure of critical assets that are running stably but have very high cost of downtime (e.g. rollers on a paper machine).
Troubled Assets (potential for catastrophic failure)
Monitor critical assets that are already on watch and might not make it to the next scheduled downtime. Identify further progression before it leads to catastrophic failure or downtime.
Hard-to-Reach Assets (Safety concern)
Protect staff by monitoring assets in remote locations or areas that present safety risks for workers (e.g., rooftop fans during bad weather, motors/rollers/assets in very hot or corrosive environments, etc.)
Process Monitoring/Control (production throughput, quality)
Understand how different operators or operating parameters affect the performance of a process/machine and thus the final product quality or throughput. Develop insights regarding best/worst practices to operate an asset.
Asset Commissioning/Start-up (verify normal start-up operation)
Monitor newly installed assets during commissioning to generate baseline and ensure proper operation. This baseline provides a reference to verify proper startup after completion of scheduled/unscheduled maintenance.
