According to this research, major areas where companies need external help when it comes to adoption of predictive maintenance is analytics of machine data, implementation of infrastructure to connect production sites and assets, implementation of this solutions and capturing and management of data coming from the assets. The results of the survey also reflect determination to address these issues as more than 90% of the companies plan to invest into technology solutions that underpin and enable predictive maintenance such as: data and predictive maintenance platforms, networking infrastructure, Internet of Things (IoT) and edge analytics.
Franck Nassah, Vice President Digital Business Innovations at PAC, said: “Current investment plans of European manufacturers and transport operators suggest that they have an imperative to become more efficient. Also, existing developments and collaboration with the vendors show that they are making the necessary steps in the right direction of building up their infrastructure and obtaining required expertise around data analytics. The success factor will be their ability to partner with the right set of vendors in order to identify the sources of data needed to obtain valuable predictions of asset outages and unlock them.”
