Smart Maintenance – Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies neatly streamline all areas of the value chain in companies

The ideal solution is achieved through the tactical combination of Smart Manufacturing and Smart Maintenance. Smart, innovative technologies such as smart sensors, edge computing, big data and artificial intelligence (AI) ensure that all assets in production operate at 100% efficiency.  For example, assets are now equipped with industrial smart sensors such as the Sushi Sensor for data acquisition. These IIoT sensors transmit the data to computer-aided maintenance management systems. These systems use advanced analysis options such as AI or cloud-based machine learning to determine the complete data pool in order to ultimately deliver results in real time that can be called up at any time from a smart device. In this way, anomalies can be quickly detected and immediately communicated to the appropriate employees. The tasks of Smart Maintenance include. monitoring and knowing the condition of the assets. In addition, there is the dedicated planning of maintenance and the improvement of the performance and effectiveness of the resources.

Communication in our Times – New Work: Remote Communication

Plants and work processes are becoming increasingly complex in industry and require service and maintenance staff to have very extensive knowledge. In the course of product development, increasingly intelligent concepts are being developed. These are designed to help service and maintenance staff to be supported remotely by an expert in complex work processes with the aid of “smart technologies” – specifically with mobile devices. With the help of these “smart technologies”, problems that arise can be transmitted very quickly to another location on earth in the form of multimodal information – i.e. films, graphics, pictures or explanations – adapted to the situation. We are talking about Remote Communication.

5G is on its way – all you need to know about tomorrow’s cellular network

Around 60 years after Germany’s first cellular network was launched, 5G (5th generation) is all set to follow 4G (or LTE) in the near future as the market’s next mobile standard. 5G represents a new stage in the evolution of mobile communications. But what can it actually do? And what conditions must you fulfill in order to take advantage of the new high-speed cellular technology’s breathtaking data transfer rates?
You can find answers to these and other questions linked to this exciting topic in the article.

How NOA can add value for process analytics

When it comes to NOA, there is much talk about leaving the classic automation pyramid and the resulting consequences, especially with regard to (data) security. There is no question that this must be ensured. Many initiatives are on their way. This blog article aims to show why these efforts are worthwhile. The PAT demonstrator, which was presented at the NAMUR Annual General Meeting in 2018, serves as an example here.

How to keep your children safe online

The Internet and digitalization are not only increasingly finding their way into the process industry, but also into private everyday life. And so parents don’t ask themselves: At what age can my child use the Internet? How often? For what? And how can I make surfing the Internet as safe as possible for my naïve offspring? In the figurative sense, digitization has even found its way into the education and upbringing of children. Accordingly, parents have to deal with questions like these – whether they want to or not. Because as many opportunities as the Internet offers, as many potential problems and dangers lurk there – especially for inexperienced users. And so it is especially important for parents to take their first steps in the digital world together with their offspring. These tips can help parents, and especially children, to move well and safely on the Internet right from the start.

Full steam ahead into digitalisation

Full steam ahead into digitalisation: Just as older analogue model steam locomotives – i.e. brownfield models – can be operated digitally with appropriate retrofitting, proven analogue sensors and analysers can also be combined into one system with a data management system, which is used as a gateway, the worlds of analogue and digital systems.
