Getting to No Unplanned Downtime

When big machines go down suddenly due to unexpected issues, the impact to industrial operators can be substantial.  An unplanned repair is costly, but of greater importance is the lost revenue opportunity during periods of extended downtime:

  • Interrupted oil output when well production is taken offline suddenly
  • Airline schedule delays and cancellations for unexpected aircraft repairs
  • Customer and public perception issues from power outages

Industrial companies are taking action with predictive maintenance to avoid the effects of unplanned downtime.

Change the game with Predictive Maintenance

What if industrial companies could predict when big machines are going to fail? 

Insight into equipment function down to the component level with machine sensors and big data analytics allows companies to take proactive action for continuous operation.

Analytics for Bottom-Line Impact

Machine sensors and sophisticated monitoring systems are capturing a wealth of data from a broad spectrum of industrial equipment. Industrial companies are using big data for real productivity and profitability gains – from asset to operations optimization. These innovations include:

  • Increased profitability with greater turbine power at an LNG plant
  • Greater ore production from mining operations
  • Improved patient experience with efficient hospital operations to speed care delivery

With GE Predictivity, big data analytics that help companies drive bottom-line results are a reality for industrial companies – today and every day.
