Together with highly motivated, experienced partners in the field of industrial IT architecture, industrial data acquisition, advanced data analytics and visualization, PHILIPS is working hard to tackle both technical and operational challenges in running this ambitious PDM project within the real-life 24/7 production environment.

The most important lesson was that moving from corrective maintenance to predictive maintenance takes a lot more than ‘just’ collect and analyze data. That’s why PHILIPS started this PDM project from the end-user perspective. Translating the end-user requirements and dreams into technical solutions that really add value to the daily work of mechanics, team-leads, operators and production managers.

The feedback collected from the end-users during the first and second intermediate demonstration of the PROPHESY developments is positive and really useful to further develop the PDM solution that best fits our specific situation.

Really looking forward to the end-result!
