Using Predictive Analytics in Maintenance

By |July 31st, 2014|Categories: Manufacturing, Predictive Analytics, Predictive Maintenance|Tags: , , |

Predictive Maintenance is the best type of maintenance a company can undertake, but not all assets classes and applications justify Predictive Maintenance. That is why the best type of maintenance is the type that works for each client. The latest technology in Predictive Maintenance is the use of Predictive Analytics. In some cases Predictive Analytics is reaching accuracies above 95% to predict an asset failure. These results are much higher when compared to traditional predictive […]

China Pollutes Less and Impacts Global Iron Ore Pricing

By |December 15th, 2013|Categories: Manufacturing|Tags: , , , , |

Some sources estimate that China has over 400 Steel Mills. Therefore, a shift to reduce pollution has lowered output from some “bad actor” mills in China reducing overall supply while the global demand for steel is expected to increase in 2014. As basic economics suggests, increase demand with lowered supply means higher prices. The Platts outlook report on global iron ore stated that pellet premiums are expected to remain firm into the first half of 2014 as […]

Reactive Maintenance and the Telephone Booth

By |September 25th, 2013|Categories: Manufacturing, Predictive Maintenance|Tags: , , |

I was walking through the streets of New York recently and ran into a public telephone booth. I was amazed at my reaction since phone booths are almost extinct. Earlier that day my family went to the Museum of Natural History to see dinasours up close and personal, and it’s amazing how all these different and interconnected animals are extinct as well. It got me thinking as to what practices in industrial manufacturing would become […]

Modeling & Simulation to Keep US Manufacturing Competitive

By |August 14th, 2013|Categories: Manufacturing|

Today I read a 2009 white paper on compete.org where it explains why US Manufacturing needs to focus on technological breakthroughs using High Performance Computing (HPC), modeling, and simulation to find better and smarter ways to improve manufacturing.  The article describes how transformative technology is used by international competitors to US manufacturers. It provides an example of a HPC German lab helped the nation’s coal fired plants use modeling and simulation to to optimize plant […]
