Wireless Asset Insights Solution Used to Detect Faults in Factories, Mines and Rugged Environments

Arrow Electronics has announced that it has teamed up with IBM and National Instruments to offer a predictive maintenance suite that enables data-driven operations in factories, oil and gas plants, mines and other rugged environments.

Integrating NI’s advanced industrial monitoring devices with IBM’s analytics/AI and asset management software, the new Wireless Industrial Asset Insights IoT solution helps enable operation managers and business decision-makers to detect and diagnose faults in advance and predict the remaining service life.

Integration to the IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management and Asset Performance Management portfolio provides analytic-driven insights and enables maintenance teams to become more proactive. This means improving operations by better predicting failures and scheduling maintenance, opening work orders, creating workflows and centrally tracking maintenance activities.

The full solution can be rapidly installed in operational scenarios thanks to engineering to ensure compatibility and repeatable integration, as well as access to Arrow’s large ecosystem of pre-qualified services and IBM implementation partners. This unique and powerful combination of NI and IBM products creates a solution that will change the way operations are managed. Operations teams can make better business decisions regarding operations availability and risk, to help them improve the company bottom line from both opex and capex perspectives. The solution is available for purchase through Arrow, Arrow business partners and IBM.
