How to Leverage AI to Help Define Spare Parts Criticality Methodology

Wednesday, Jun 26, 2024 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

Reliability and Operations teams have always struggled with a repeatable process for defining criticality for maintenance spare parts. It is often too easy to make everything critical and often entails a binary method of “yes/no” or “true/false.” Most criticality review processes are static (one and done) and are not revisited nor adjusted with changing business climates. Untrusted, outdated criticality reviews, if any, lead to treating everything as critical which leads to surplus which ultimately becomes obsolete… aka wasted capital.

Diagnostic Engine: Empowering Data Analytics

Wednesday, July 10, 2024 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

Ensuring the success of your connected reliability program is essential for the management team. Many companies today are facing vibration data overload, where the excessive amount of vibration data exceeds analytic capacity in today’s wireless sensor world Azima DLI manages over 500,000 machine tests per year and uses algorithms, metrics, and processes to sustain those programs. The webinar will discuss changes in vibration AI/machine learning, workflow, and culture necessary to help drive your success.
