Servitization in Play with Intelligent Asset Management

No doubt, the machines on the shop floor, the degassers in the oil rigs, the excavator on the construction site – they all need  zero downtime when they run. In some cases, an asset’s downtime disrupts the production line and can create safety hazards. Industry is aware of this problem and has come up with various innovative solutions to achieve maximum uptime and optimum returns from industrial assets. So, we are not really discussing something unknown to the industry, which has gone through so many revolutions in last 200+ years. We are already seeing Industry 4.0 in action with Smart and Digital Factories and we are ready to usher in version 5.0.

So, in a way, most of the industry has started the journey, wherever they are. Some have a fully operational Digital Factory even though they are managing it with their SCADA systems. But, do they have an integrated holistic view of their assets? I mean, it is not only about corrective, preventive, or predictive maintenance operations. As we will see, it is much more than that.
