The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has the potential to drastically change your maintenance operations, improve asset efficiency and help you make smarter investment planning decisions. The industrial version of the more consumer-centric IoT concept, IIoT has been around for a long time but has not seen widespread adoption in the rail industry.
In this SmartRail World article, our Trapeze rail industry expert Marcelo Bravo writes about how Denver Transit Operators (DTO) has successfully leveraged IIoT technology to incorporate asset sensors into their network and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) system.
DTO’s SCADA system sends automated asset failure alerts to their EAM system, where actions are generated and maintenance staff automatically informed. This IIoT / EAM combo works in synergy to support true condition-based maintenance, minimising service interruptions and allowing DTO to resolve problems before any asset actually fails.
If you’re interested in IIoT and EAM, you might also like Marcelo Bravo’s presentation at Middle East Rail.
