Remote Monitoring Redefines Reliability, OEM Value Proposition
Staring down a shortage of approximately 85 million high-skilled and medium-skilled workers globally by 2020, coupled with the workforce transformation stemming from new digital technologies collectively known as Industry 4.0, manufacturers are finding difficulty in attracting full-time technicians to assure plant reliability. Industrial companies are instead seeking new ways – through these very digital trends – to avoid production interruptions, predict preventive maintenance requirements and ensure facility uptime to maximize the bottom line. Rolf Paeper, vice president of product management and digital solutions for Ingersoll Rand’s compression technologies and services business unit, will share three critical ways remote monitoring digital technology can help identify plant maintenance issues and get greater uptime in facilities. He will also address Ingersoll Rand’s journey in developing these digital technologies, and how the company identified remote monitoring as a critical business opportunity based on its customer’s needs.
