The customer has taken control of the industrial world. It is impossible to risk the breakdown of production while the whole production chain must work under tension: customer delays, supply, etc. Time to Market has become a key issue of differentiation and sometimes even survival. Maintenance is now a strategic function in companies. Good news, innovative technologies will make it possible to go from a penalizing healing to a safe preventive!
Who still believes that repairing a breakdown even in the shortest possible time is a sufficient solution to satisfy the increasingly pressing demands of customers on deadlines? The development of competition and the unrestrained race to competitiveness, leads to a search for total quality and especially a reduction in costs! Forecast malfunctions, anticipate breakdowns, etc. Over the years the technology has come to the rescue of the maintenance activity. Many innovations invade the production lines, sometimes requiring a very rapid adaptation of the teams in place.
This is the case of SAV Réso, located in Ozoir-la-Ferrière. In partnership with OptimData (a start-up specialized in the interpretation of Big Data data), it offers its customers to equip their machines with a solution called Need & Use. This solution aims at equipping a GPRS box with the machines that allow them to communicate, which promotes the harvesting and analysis of real-time usage data.
All of its data is intended to provide critical information in order to provide an effective predictive maintenance plan, increase the life of the equipment, reduce the probability of operational failures and reduce downtime in the event of overhaul or failure. In addition, preventive maintenance is aimed at avoiding additional costs such as lubricant or spare parts, costly corrective maintenance interventions, or even securing the work of employees.
