Abstract

In an age of globalised manufacturing, Big Data can be harnessed to improve decision making in the maintenance of products. The manufacturing sector is plagued with outdated legacy systems and data. Some manufacturers are using predictive-maintenance and condition-monitoring analytics on their assets to keep operations “up and running” by identifying problems before they occur. However, Big Data is a virtually untapped asset for the Power Generation Industry. A lot of data related to product manufacturing and services in this sector has been collected for years, but have not been analysed and used.This paper reports the results of an industrial investigation, proposing a roadmap to make use of sensors to assess the maintenance statuses of equipment, and a Big Data architecture for the
implementation of a predictive analytics application.
