Arrow Electronics, Inc. announced it has teamed with IBM and National Instruments to offer a predictive maintenance suite that enables data-driven operations in factories, oil and gas plants, mines and other rugged environments.
Integrating NI’s advanced industrial monitoring devices with IBM’s analytics/AI and asset management software, the new Wireless Industrial Asset Insights IoT solution helps enable operations managers and business decision makers to detect and diagnose faults in advance and predict remaining service life.
Integration to the IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management and Asset Performance Management portfolio provides analytic-driven insights and enables maintenance teams to become more proactive. This means improving operations by better predicting failures and scheduling maintenance, opening work orders, creating workflows and centrally tracking maintenance activities.
The full solution can be rapidly installed in operational scenarios thanks to engineering to ensure compatibility and repeatable integration, as well as access to Arrow’s large ecosystem of pre-qualified services and IBM implementation partners.
