Vibration Analysis for Predictive Maintenance (PDM)

Vibration Analysis for Predictive Maintenance (PDM)

One of the major challenges while dealing with heavy machineries is to keep them running for as much time as possible or say to reduce the down time to increase productivity. If a machine breaks down during scheduled operating hours, it can bear huge financial losses. But few machines are operated with a goal to let it run for as long as it can. Once it fails or malfunctions, it is repaired/replaced. This is called Corrective Maintenance. But for most machines, operating it till it fails is not an option. To avoid failures, maintenance is scheduled at regular intervals. This is called Preventive Maintenance. It is costly and requires a lot of resources. But with the advent of sensor, IIoT and cloud technologies, now the actual condition of machines can be monitored continuously and maintenances can be done when truly needed. This is called Predictive Maintenance (PdM). It is much more efficient and hence most cost-effective as well. The process by which PdM is done is called Condition Monitoring....

Industrial IoT – Unlocking Business Value from IIoT

Industrial IoT – Unlocking Business Value from IIoT

As the markets become more consumer-centric, experts suggest it is the best time to be a consumer because the only way businesses can thrive today is by valuing their customers. The necessity to deliver exceptional consumer experiences has paved way for smart solutions enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT). But as they say, there is a price for everything.Each quality experience delivered has a series of round-the-clock efforts tagged. Since we belong to the age of automation, the major effort here is machine effort that requires considerable energy consumption. According to a 2012 survey conducted by McKinsey and Company, energy is one of the biggest operating costs in manufacturing, accounting for up to 20% of the total operating cost. [1] However, increasing adoption of the Internet of Things presents manufacturers with tremendous business opportunities. And, through a connected factory setup, manufacturers can effectively gather and apply insights to monetize these opportunities. Today, the IoT-driven Industry 4.0 solutions are helping businesses to improve productivity, reduce operating costs and enhance...

Healthcare IoT: Smart Technology for Better Healthcare

Healthcare IoT: Smart Technology for Better Healthcare

In order to define the future, we need to identify, predict, analyze, and assess the information provided by every imaginable source. Talking of information, we look for it in the form of Big Data and perhaps the most important source of information is the human body. The Internet of Things is paving way for innovation in nearly every aspect of human existence and soon we will see this technology touching lives, quite literally! Traditionally physicians had a holistic view of the patient’s health condition giving them limited access to the root cause, thereby forcing them to make decisions with very less data. As a result, Electronic Medical Records (EMR) for each patient was maintained. Furthermore, the hospitals and assisted living facilities do not have the resources to monitor every resident and these residents are not capable of, or equipped to monitor and regulate themselves. Many healthcare organizations do not apply data from connected devices to other business processes which creates inefficiency, potential for data loss, and mistakes in diagnosis....

IoT is enabling endless possibilities in the Smart Building and Home Automation space

IoT is enabling endless possibilities in the Smart Building and Home Automation space

Along with the digital transformation in the automotive and industrial segments, Internet of Things (IoT) has been creating a lot of buzz around smart buildings as well.  From ‘smart home’ to ‘connected enterprise’, IoT has been consistently making our surroundings increasingly intuitive through technology. Disruptive pressure to attain improved operational and energy efficiency is forcing construction managers to look up to smart building technologies for improved occupant experiences. Upcoming trends in the connected building solutions, whether it is about communication interfaces, video surveillance, environmental controls, or energy conservation, can deliver significant cost savings and efficiency gains. Recent disruptions in the Indian telecommunication service industry, such as 4G and competitive data packages by ISPs, will make these trends to evolve at a faster and affordable pace. The smart home revolution happened quicker than anticipated. Many of us might have just realized that the products and expertise required to achieve these futuristic results already exist. The Amazon dash button, as a part of smart home kitchen, allows you to re-order things...

5 Trends at NRF

5 Trends at NRF

Sasken is enabling its retail customers to engage with their end consumers in the pre- and post-purchase stages by providing personalized customer services and building engaging brand experiences that fuel profitable growth and drive competitive advantage. Here are some industry trends that we witnessed at NRF 2017, some of which we are already enabling for our customers: 1. E-Commerce is small but growing steadily     According to a recent report by Deloitte, brick and mortar stores still reign are still ahead with in-store purchases. The e-com growth continues to be solid due to the presence of data that is nimble enough to be actioned on. 2. Data is money! E-Commerce players can use a free tool like Google Analytics and generate extraordinary amounts of user behavior data. Using this data they provide a far superior service that reduces customer effort and time. At the same time the investments that are required from brick and mortar stores to generate ‘click-stream’ equivalent data is significant. Though there are tools that...
