Connected Assets – IoT
BPD Zenith is working closely with clients to provide them with a greater understanding of their assets in use than ever before. Sensors built into assets (can be retrofitted) can offer the user information on asset condition. We are now able to connect these sensors to core Enterprise Asset Management systems such as IBM Maximo to discover more about asset performance.
AI (Artificial Intelligence) is now sufficiently mature that it can enhance and support condition-based maintenance. Whereas interval-based maintenance has been the foundation of good asset management practice for many years, organisations now have the opportunity to streamline maintenance costs and enhance their understanding of asset behaviour in service – and mitigate risks of failure in use. This has the potential to impact productivity and contribute to the bottom line of asset intensive industries.
BPD is working with IBM’s Asset Performance Management (APM) suite which has been designed to meet the requirements of asset intensive organisations for secure, intelligent and real-time IoT solutions. BPD is currently engaged with customers on connected asset projects and can advise upon and deliver Maximo APM solutions and implementation.
