In the manufacturing sector, utilities mainly consist of electricity, gas, and water. All of them are the basic needs of organizations. Without having automated real-time data, staff needs to track each asset manually, which takes a significant amount of time and effort. It’s a point where asset management comes into play. It makes operations efficient and provides an accurate and deep understanding of the entire plant leading to indirect energy savings.

 

Why is there a need for utility asset management?

Plant maintenance & operation teams face a common challenge – limited access to information and asset data. Technologies like IoT can erase those setbacks by providing real-time access to data at a centralized location. In a time where everyday operations are getting complex, the adoption of advanced technology is a must for manufacturing units.

The manufacturing plants typically require a certain set of utilities that include:

  • Energy
    • Grid
    • DG
    • Solar
    • UPS
  • Water
  • Gas

By automated reading of various utilities, manufacturers can improve the operational efficiency& visibility of a plant. The same solution also works for critical machines like heavy machinery, HVAC, Pumps, compressors, etc.

 

Using IoT based cloud platform to reduce maintenance costs and eliminate equipment downtime

Collecting the asset performance data is highly crucial for manufacturing industries. IoT-powered devices make it possible! It comes with smart sensors that communicate with both equipment &centralized gateway, resulting in an insightful cloud-based centralized dashboard. Embedding these sensors and smart devices in a manufacturing facility can give machine operators detailed insights into the asset performance. It ultimately reduces the maintenance costs of equipment and provides centralized visibility of various assets across plants.

The implementation of IoT technology into the manufacturing units has eased the work of industries upto a great extent. This type of digital transformation helps in establishing smarter infrastructure. Incorporating IoT based asset management offers several benefits that include:

 

  • Automated reading of energy, water & gas
  • Visibility at the plant level
  • Automated anomaly detection & ticketing of various equipment across plants
  • Improved operational efficiency
  • Visibility & drill-down of issues within a plant
  • Energy benchmarking across plants
  • Visibility into machine health
  • Explicit comparison of energy consumption by different sections of the plant
  • Dedicated asset maintenance

 

Establish an analytical approach to asset management

Manufacturers should replace the manual asset management model and implement an automated, IoT-based, and analytically precise approach. After all, it delivers real-time information on asset performance. They can manage assets effectively by implementing advanced IoT solutions. Communication devices, sensors, and other hardware can remotely track and control industrial assets.

Manufacturing units planning to maintain lower operational costs can use analytics and implement utility asset management. It optimizes the availability, performance, and quality of assets along with energy consumption.
