Why predictive maintenance should be a combined effort – Presented by Wouter Verbeek, Berenschot

Why predictive maintenance should be a combined effort – Presented by Wouter Verbeek, Berenschot. At the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, November 15 ,2016, at High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Implementing predictive maintenance is an extremely promising maintenance strategy, but often turns out to be way more complicated than expected. A lot of attempts to implement predictive maintenance strand at the same departments as where they were initiated. The key towards successful implementation of predictive maintenance is to combine the knowledge of all departments in making decisions. In this presentation we start by explaining, based on the subject of sensor selection, why involving your entire organization is so important. Afterwards we give advice on how to implement predictive maintenance, give examples based on the Strukton Worksphere case and discuss how to get your entire organization on board.

About ISN Conference
Sensor networks for smart industry, smart logistics and smart infrastructure are getting more and more essential. Real time information from ‘the real world’ to support decision making and control of vital processes will be an integral part of business processes. With Industrial internet, Machine to Machine (M2M) or Internet of Things (ioT) traditional boundaries disappear.

The 7th edition of the international Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference will focus on the following areas:
