Presentation of the Mantis Project at Sirris’ seminar: fleet-based analytics for data-driven operation and maintenance optimization

On October 24th Sirris organized an industrial seminar on the opportunities and challenges related to fleet-based data exploration. During this seminar, a general introduction to the MANTIS project was first given, followed by presentations from several partners within theMANTIS project including: the Mondragon University (press machines), the Eindhoven University of Technology (shaver manufacturing), 3E (Photovoltaic Plants), Ilias Solutions (Vehicles), Atlas Copco (compressors) and Sirris. The event was a real success with around 45 participants and offered participants via real-world use cases in the different industrial domains mentioned above the opportunity to see how data-driven analytics on a fleet of machines can optimize the operation and maintenance of those.

Sirris seminar on fleet-based analytics for data-driven operation and maintenance optimization

On October 24th Sirris is organizing in Belgium an industrial seminar on the opportunities and challenges related to fleet-based data exploration. During this event Belgian as well as other European industrial partners from the MANTIS project will present their experience with fleet-based analytics (based on use-cases from the MANTIS project).

Many companies operate a fleet of machines that have a similar, almost identical behaviour in terms of internal operation, application and usage, such as for example windmills, compressors and professional vehicles. This set of almost identical machines is defined as ‘a fleet’.

In addition, more and more, those machines are equipped with several (smart) sensors, that can capture data on operational temperature, vibrations, pressure and many other features, depending on the machine. In addition, the communication and data storage technologies are becoming ubiquitous, making it possible to gather the data in a central platform and derive insights into normal and anomalous behaviour across the entire fleet of machines. By comparing for example the behaviour of a single machine to the rest of the fleet, one can identify if a machine is underperforming due to misconfiguration or imminent failure. The analysis of this data can also help service and maintenance personnel to have a more detailed and optimised maintenance planning, e.g. ensuring an optimal distribution of the entire fleet in terms of remaining useful life, in order to manage the work load of the service engineers. Therefore, the exploitation of the data collected on a fleet of machines is a real asset for maintenance and service personnel and, at a larger scale, for an entire company.
