Monitoring your facility’s performance is important, not just to help maintain the equipment at peak operating conditions, but also to provide the right knowledge in a functional format to improve your facility’s bottom line.
Using Cloud based system to monitor the equipment is the latest technology to maintain the equipment in a better reliable performance. The approach is to acquire data from machine tools and analyses them through an information fusion technique to support the condition-based preventive maintenance operations. The proposed approach is developed into a software service, deployed on a Cloud environment. The service gathers and processes data, such as their actual operation time ; power consumption; input and output current; power usage; start stop period, that related to the operation of machine tools and calculates the expected remaining useful life of components. Moreover, it provides notifications to machine tool operators and maintenance departments, as well as it enables the communication among them using mobile technology.
