While most maintenance professionals are well aware of Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in theory, applying them in practice is still somewhat elusive.

Martin Davis, managing partner of DUNELM Associates and Jim Gavigan, president of Industrial Insight Inc., present a practical view of these two interrelated concepts and how to apply them in real-world industrial maintenance environments, in the Accelix Best Practice Webinar: “How industry 4.0 and IIoT drive a new world of maintenance.”

Industry 4.0 revolves around using many different types of real-time equipment data to make decisions to improve processes.

Industry 4.0, or the Fourth Industrial Revolution, is the trend toward smart, autonomous systems that turn real-time data from your equipment into information and insights to improve your processes. The IIoT encompasses the enabling technologies to support that strategy. This webinar explores how to put both concepts to work to benefit organizations of all sizes.

Both presenters have extensive experience in helping clients develop a strategy to turn operational data from their production equipment into manufacturing intelligence that guides them to enhance processes, increase product quality, and reduce unplanned downtime and costs.

  • Why do I need to know about Industry 4.0 and IIoT?
  • What new components do I need to add (if any) to be able to implement Industry 4.0?
  • How do I avoid building a Frankenstein of incompatible components?
  • How do I justify the cost of buying extra tools to upper management?

As the presenters note, following Industry 4.0 tenets can help you detect problems early and resolve them quickly to help reduce unscheduled downtime and repair costs. Along the way, Gavigan and Davis describe various methods of acquiring the data needed to achieve early detection.

They also share detailed real-world examples of how to implement those methods in actual use cases they’ve encountered. In one case, they describe how a solution with a simple one-way pipe from a historian system is expanded to a include a bi-directional interface between the historian system and a real-time data system. It now evaluates multiple parameters to provide a more complete picture of asset health.

In another case, they explain how a customer was able transform a manual compliance report that took eight hours a month into an automated real-time reporting solution.

After watching this webinar, you’ll have a better idea of what is easily accessible today within the Industry 4.0 framework as well as a roadmap for more advanced tools that are just around the corner.

Key takeaways include:

  • Start small, using data you already own and add to it as needed based on the criticality and cost of the equipment you’re maintaining.
  • The key questions to ask when choosing an IIoT platform, sensors, and/or analytics systems.
  • How to identify and avoid potential pitfalls.
  • How to make sure you have high-quality data from the right sensors before you invest in more advanced technology such as AI, machine learning, and augmented reality.
