Predictive Maintenance

Predictive Maintenance - Optimizing Equipment Effectiveness through AI (2 days)

Predictive maintenance is a data-driven maintenance strategy that uses data from industrial processes, PLCs and sensors to predict when maintenance is needed for equipment or machinery. This approach is designed to detect potential issues early, before they result in more significant problems that could cause downtime, decreased productivity, or safety hazards.

By predicting when maintenance is needed, predictive maintenance can help organizations reduce costs associated with unscheduled downtime and prevent catastrophic equipment failures. It can also improve equipment reliability, extend equipment lifespan, and improve overall operational efficiency.

In this course you will learn the characteristics of a predictive maintenance strategy compared with strategies such as reactive and preventive maintenance. You will understand the predictive maintenance workflow from acquiring and preprocessing data, feature engineering, model training, model evaluation, model deployment, and model management. Furthermore you will gain insights into root cause analysis of problems in your machinery to identify which parts need to be repaired or replaced.

The theoretical topics of the training will be intensified by hands-on exercises, based on real-world IIoT datasets. By default, all exercises are performed with Python.
