Azima’s automated diagnostic software, combined with domain expert supervision, we reap all the benefits of automation but with a complete level of trust. Predictive maintenance technologies are not exact science; they need the human element to interpret the subtle nuances of the machine’s characteristics which makes analysis unique. Data can be gathered and presented, measurements can be screened and quantified, but it is the gracefulness of the analyst to feel and interpret what the situation may bear to make the appropriate recommendation. The central role of domain experts has been the engine of the service economy for decades. Domain experts fill our lives – doctors when we’re sick, lawyers in court, pilots when we fly, and accountants at tax time. They all rely to a growing degree on automation, but we rely on them.
What does a system that combines domain expertise and the Industrial Internet look like? A fully integrated technology stack that begins with data acquisition devices at the edge that connect to a cloud based data center with automated diagnostic tools. Domain experts with thick client analysis tools connect to the cloud to quality control automated diagnostic results, and post them with peer-reviewed commentary and recommendations to a web portal. Customers with thin client access to the web portal use the information they find there to plan and organize their own maintenance, repair and procurement plans.
