“The predictive maintenance industry stands to gain more from the cloud revolution than most any other industry."
Woburn, MA (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
Azima DLI, the leader and premier provider of Predictive Maintenance (PdM) analytical services and products, today announced the release of a new white paper, “Cloud Computing – Another Buzzword or Leveraging Technology?” that discusses how cloud computing can be used within maintenance operations to improve plant operations.
Companies of all shapes and sizes are taking advantage of the cost and operational benefits of cloud computing, but many predictive maintenance professionals are lagging behind as they don’t understand what it is or how it can help support operational goals. Azima DLI’s Kenneth Piety, Ph. D. and David Geswein, BS, M.E. wrote this white paper to educate readers about how cloud computing can improve the efficiency, uptime and transparency of maintenance operations. The white paper contains an explanation of cloud computing’s applications within the maintenance industry as well as three case studies that showcase the technology’s potential.
“The predictive maintenance industry stands to gain more from the cloud revolution than most any other industry,” said Piety. “In fact, the cloud is already opening up many possibilities in the world of PdM in terms of centralizing data, improving collaboration and increasing access and transparency of diagnostic data to improve the timeliness of maintenance and repairs.”
According to the white paper, moving PdM to the cloud will revolutionize the industry in
several critical areas:
- Centralization - Data is leveraged more efficiently
- Collaboration - Multiple people can share the same information
- Communication - Because email alerts, text messages, and even automated phone calls are possible, the profile of PdM within an organization is raised
- Transparency - More people in the organization are exposed to the PdM process and can clearly see the benefits
- Integration – Automated data exchange between business systems becomes a reality
- Participation - The door will be opened for others to gather data, contribute knowledge, report observations, and feedback findings to the system
