Abstract Content : Energy and utility infrastructures around the globe are making a major generational shift on how they operate and maintain their equipment. Increased productivity pressures and high uptime demands of equipment combined with shortage of qualified maintenance personnel are driving facilities to rely more than ever on predictive maintenance tools (PdM).
As we continue to see the increased use of PdM tools such as sensors, analytics and cloud gate dashboards, we hear these two buzz words “IIoT” aka Industrial Internet of Things and “Big Data” more often today. This session will explore the basics of IIoT in industrial and critical infrastructure environments and their context with application scenarios. The topic will highlight the importance of predictive maintenance (PdM) tools over preventive maintenance methods and discuss the best practices to integrate sensors, communications, and analytics to present most useful and meaningful data that helps users in making day-to-day business decisions. Additional topics of discussion will include implementation challenges involved with IIoT, reliability centered maintenance programs in electric motors, pumps, generators, transformers, switchgears, bus ducts and their interpretation with NFPA 70B standards with focus on maintenance needs of electrical & mechanical equipment in various industrial verticals.
