Predictive Maintenance in the IoT Era
Predictive maintenance is a technique to predict when an in-service machine will fail so that maintenance can be planned in advance. Data-driven predictive maintenance, in particular, is gaining increasing attention in the industry along with the emerging demand of the Internet of Things (IoT) applications and the maturity of the supporting technologies. In this session we will present a real-world predictive maintenance example where the problem is formulated into three related questions via different machine learning models. A demonstration of how data flows through an end-to end-system, from ingesting the data to aggregating in real time to predicting based on historical data, will be done using tools such as Azure Machine Learning, Azure Stream Analytics, and Power BI. These technologies allow companies such as ThyssenKrupp Elevator to go from reactive to proactive and even predictive analysis of maintenance problems.
