Perhaps one of the best advancements in our modern age for the operation of industrial equipment and reciprocating machinery is the advent of IIoT solutions. IIoT, or the Industrial Internet of Things, has connected machinery across the field with outstanding technological insights. From condition monitoring that is shared in real-time to the optimization of machinery that can be handled from any location, IIoT solutions can assist in providing visibility across your organization and intelligent insights into your daily operations.
Make sure that you are making the most of your IIoT solutions through the following tips.
Invest In The Best
While IIoT solutions have brought the industry a long way, the products you choose will play a huge role in how much insight you actually gain. Investing in the best and latest technology ensures that you are getting the most out of your system. If you feel that your current asset monitoring system is not providing you with the ability to accurately predict, optimize, and manage your machinery, then it might be time to look for improved products. Quality IIoT solutions do not need to be exorbitantly priced, nor do they need to be cumbersome to install. Look for a system that is easy to implement and one that offers in-depth insights.
Spend Time Training
Even if you have the most outstanding monitoring system implementing the latest and greatest in IIoT solutions, you will get very little out of the data if you do not have managers who are properly trained in the use of this data. You need solid team members who can implement management programs in accordance with the analytics they are being fed. Here at Windrock, we understand the value of proper training, which is why we offer on-site analyst development training to ensure that those who utilize our IIoT solutions are doing so to the very best of their ability.
Utilize The Data
Historically, there was limited data to work with in regards to the operation of machinery and equipment. In many cases, equipment was located in hard to reach locations. This meant that most data was collected intermittently. Due to the lack of real-time data available, analytics were limited in their scope. With IIoT solutions, this is no longer the case. Data is fed to you on a constant basis, allowing for improved actionable insights and predictive advisories. Make sure that if you are implementing upgraded technology you are not letting this data go to waste. Ensure that you are implementing Key Performance Indicators across your company in order to harness the full power of the information you are being given. This will allow you and other management to make data-driven decisions, leading to a better optimization of your entire fleet of assets.
