Maintenance 4.0

In industrial manufacturing environments, often characterized as being stochastic, dynamic and chaotic, maintenance is a crucial issue to ensure the production efficiency, since the occurrence of unexpected disturbances leads to a degradation of the system performance, causing the loss of productivity and business opportunities, which are crucial roles to achieve competitiveness. Maintenance 4.0 project constitutes a real world implementation of intelligent and predictive maintenance through the development of advanced data analytics applications. These applications will enable the reduction of the unplanned down times by predicting possible failures The ultimate goal is to develop industrial applications to perform real time data analysis in order to boost the productivity and, consequently, business opportunities.
