Advantech's Edge-To-Cloud Solution Powered by WISE-PaaS Creates an AI Equipment Monitoring and Diagnosis Cloud Platform for Steel Plants
An internationally renowned steel company located in Taiwan introduced the AI value-added equipment diagnostics edge-to-cloud solution of Advantech WISE-PaaS.Through the collaboration of cloud platform, big data analytics, and AI technology, aims to reduce production line downtime, improve the service life of the equipment, and promote the function of automated remote diagnosis and preventive maintenance.
Fault diagnosis in traditional factories passively fixes equipment by relying on senior maintenance personnel to locate problems and schedule maintenance when they arise. When production lines stop due to equipment failure, enterprises suffer considerable losses. Even when subsequent repair is fast, these losses cannot be fully eliminated.
An internationally renowned steel company located in Taiwan provides one of these cases. The company observed that there was considerable variation in the production line equipment located in harsh environments and exposed to abnormal conditions. Thus, the equipment monitoring and diagnosis cloud project began in hopes of using a cloud platform, big data analytics, and AI technology to flexibly address abnormal situations and improve production and management efficiency.
Specifically, the steel company outlined five goals for the project: (1) establish a standardized data uploading mechanism to improve the diversity and compatibility of data access; (2) plan machine learning standard operating procedures to improve the accuracy of equipment diagnosis; (3) import visual dashboards to improve data interpretation; (4) import smart edge computing technology to improve the immediacy of alarms; (5) import modular software and hardware architecture to improve system scalability.
