HSE 4.0: How industry preserves safety in its latest revolution
Let’s take a look at an overlooked aspect of Industry 4.0 – the future of health, safety and environment (HSE) – to get a picture of what EAM means moving forward.
The honeymoon period for Industry 4.0 is coming to a close. Businesses have oohed and ahhed at the gadgetry, the actionable data utilization and the promises of a better, brighter, more Jetsons-like future for the industrial sector. It’s time to stop spectating and start participating.
Too hot to handle: Thermographic imaging and industrial asset management
Enterprise asset management would not be possible without technological advancements that give industry leaders with asset-intensive operations unprecedented control over the machinery they use every day.
Yet apart from this newfound mastery of equipment vital to production, EAM-related tools should also, in part, remove some of the mystery of how machines work. While preventive maintenance may warn operators of a present, pressing deficiency or irregularity in a particular operation, investigation takes time, engineering know-how and maybe some trial and error before the root cause can be uncovered.
Infrared thermography, however, presents industrial businesses with an opportunity to learn more about the mechanical and electrical equipment they monitor with easily understood extrasensory perception.
Replay: Utilizing Your CMMS To Drive Infrared PdM Activities
We recently had the opportunity to lead a session at the IR / INFO 2017 conference hosted by the Infraspection Institute.
We were asked to discuss and demonstrate the steps necessary to set up a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to monitor and drive infrared predictive maintenance / PdM activities. Our Peyton Griggers prepared and delivered this presentation in Orlando this month to support the educational goals of the conference.
