Sensors, sensors everywhere, but not a drop to… hang on a minute. While many organisations may still be at the starting blocks of what has been termed the Internet of Things, the operational technology world has been making considerable advances, routinely handling data coming from thousands of pieces of equipment. Specifically, this area is moving beyond just collating data (as useful as that is) and is looking towards how to enable its supply chain of equipment manufacturers and service providers to securely share this data and make it work harder.
Doing so creates a number of opportunities for equipment manufacturers, service providers and their customers — for example, predictive maintenance or spares management that directly involves the manufacturer, or to take things further, feeding information directly into manufacturing, making more efficient processes and better, higher-quality products. This is not without its challenges of course: not least the data security ramifications of feeding the right information to the right manufacturer.
In this webinar, we speak to OSIsoft to learn more about this exciting area. It’s going to be show, don’t tell as we cover a real world example, bringing strategic equipment supplier Axens and their customer, International Oil & Gas company MOL Group, to explain how they are now sharing operational sensor data to provide value-added services and optimize manufacturing processes. We’ll cover:
- Context setting — the business value of sharing operational data with suppliers
- Challenges — covering security concerns and simplifying the sharing of data with multiple stakeholders
- Delivering the solution — understanding the architecture and practicalities of delivery – with a real world example
- Next steps — covering how equipment manufacturers and service providers can take advantage of this opportunity
So, if you are an equipment manufacturer or service provider wanting to know how to connect with the growing mountains of available data coming from your customer sites, to become more proactive and create new, differentiated services, or if you simply want to know more about how innovative companies are harnessing the power of sensor-based insight, tune in.
