It’s the Catch-22 of successful predictive analytics: When unexpected events such as unplanned downtime have been all but eliminated, what’s the value of prediction? How much continuing investment does an unpredictable future justify? The hard lesson of so many catastrophic events—industrial accidents and terrorist attacks alike—is that they were avoidable. With 20/20 hindsight, the data was available to predict the events, and there was time to intervene and head off disaster. How much have the avoidable catastrophic events of the 21st century cost us, and how much would we have willingly spent to prevent them?

Insiders and outsiders will pitch you all day long on the value and virtues of big data and the industrial internet of things. People demand to know why you aren’t doing more with and for the IIoT. It’s enough to make you think you work for the IIoT, rather than the other way around. Here’s a piece of advice: Make the IIoT work for you. Every time someone pushes an IIoT or big-data solution on you, ask three simple questions:
- What business results will this deliver? (Note: “Visibility” is not a business result.)
- Will this deliver relevant data or just more data?
- What do actual users need, want, and say?

Companies in fiercely competitive markets have to maintain parity when it comes to proven innovations. This explains the pervasiveness of ingrained predictive maintenance cultures in the industrial gases sector. PdM is a staple because reliability is expected. Other markets have similar ingrained cultures but not with the same consistence. This culture did not happen all at once among the industrial gases companies, but rather a consequence of first adopters outperforming their competitors by distinguishing themselves on the basis of reliability. This sequence of events may be playing out similarly in other sectors as the Industrial Internet of Things reaches into the predictive market.

Big Data and the Internet of Things allows for more information to be gathered and distributed to help manage and control plants and operations. But being able to understand, decipher, and take action on this highly connected, new frontier of technical information could be a daunting task. This article is a great read on how businesses are managing and making sense of big data.
Proponents of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) often say predictive maintenance is ripe for digital transformation because today’s point solution can’t scale. They often leap to the potential of machine learning and visions of closed-loop, self-diagnosing machines. What does the path for digital transformation of PdM look like and where is the line between hype and reality? Burt Hurlock, CEO of Azima DLI, presents in this Solutions 2.0 web conference what IIoT has to offer over today’s solutions, the obstacles of IIoT adoption, and trust, control, and the role of domain experts.
“The argument against permanently installed online condition monitoring solutions has been universally financial. The argument is that a technician with a handheld data collector can cover a lot more ground, test many more machines, and go to where the trouble is far most cost efficient, while the sunk cost of a permanently installed vibration sensor may take years to justify itself, if ever, because machines selected for permanently installed online monitoring may take years to show signs of deterioration. The only way to test the argument is to run the numbers…” Read the full article by Azima DLI CEO, Burt Hurlock, in the link below.
