Predictive maintenance is one of the Industrial IoT applications being applied to the smart factory. Through predictive maintenance, smart factory operators can reduce unplanned downtime, improve the effectiveness of operational equipment, minimize maintenance costs, and increase their return on investment (ROI). To realize these benefits, manufacturers must deploy intelligent edge computing solutions such as the Dell Edge Gateway 5000 that are capable of bringing enterprise-class analytics closer to industrial sensors.
This white paper will teach automation engineers and factory operators:
- About the four stages of predictive maintenance maturity
- Tips for a successful predictive maintenance implementation
- About a predictive maintenance case study based on the Dell Edge Gateway 5000
