Topic: Predictive Maintenance: Art or Science? (Patrick van Loon, Microsoft)

Predictive Maintenance has been a topic of discussion for a number of years but still many PdM initiatives fail at an early stage. In this keynote we will highlight some of the (early) successes and failures, and provide some food-for-thought how to develop Predictive maintenance into a well-established discipline.

Patrick van Loon is Cloud Solution Architect at Microsoft Western Europe. In this role he is advising large manufacturing companies to achieve more by using innovative technologies in their operations. Patrick is an Industrial Engineer with over 20 years of experience in both manufacturing/supply chain operations as well as Information Technology. He’s always looking for practical applications of new technologies to drive value. For the last 10 years his focus has been on use-cases related to Big Data, Advanced Analytics and IIot, including large scale Predictive Maintenance programs.
