Publications about the project
Production downtimes and maintenance costs affect the choice of an economic maintenance strategy. Predictive maintenance of machines promises a solution for both interests, when machine conditions can be predicted. The digital machine file supports this task by a combination of data exchange and artificial intelligence.
condition monitoring, artificial intelligence
In the project "Increase of maintenance quality through machine-specific information on the example of paper and print finishing" researchers developed methods for an improved maintenance quality by using a predictive strategy. The developed methods combine the exchange of data related to the maintenance with analysis of this data with the help of artificial intelligence. This ensures that the companies that are involved in the lifecycle of a machine gain additional information, for example about the current degree of wear of a unit.
maintenance, data mining
Condition-based maintenance of production equipment offers a better trade-off between availability and maintenance costs than other maintenance strategies. A novel approach for determining and predicting the plant condition is presented. The approach applies methods of artificial intelligence to a distributed database covering the entire life cycle of the equipment. The approach simplifies the introduction of condition-based maintenance by means of machine learning and is especially suited for equipment with unknown fault behaviour.
