Topic Title:

Democratizing Predictive Maintenance through the Industrial Internet of Things


James Reyes-Picknell, Principal Consultant, Conscious Asset


With all the talk about big data and the IIoT, many are asking how can we use this in maintenance? The IIoT enables us to put sensors in any location where we might want to collect and analyze equipment condition and performance data. There are companies that offer predictive maintenance services, and some companies do this for themselves, in-house.

Typically, it’s the larger companies that can afford this, but democratization has meant this has become available to a much broader market. But there are hurdles to taking advantage of this sort of continuous monitoring program, even for your most critical equipment. One, it’s expensive, whether you do it in-house or outsource. And two, there are data bottlenecks. Condition monitoring data comes is huge volumes and it’s all time-sensitive.

Even if you can afford it, you need a data handling network with a lot of capacity. In this workshop, we’ll present a viable technical solution to the data bottleneck problem — based on a solution already proven in financial securities markets — that opens up these possibilities in the realm of plant continuous condition monitoring.

A Message From the 2018 - 2019 Chapter Chair...

Greetings fellow SMRP Members,

The Ontario Chapter of the SMRP is rising again after a period of inactivity. This was made possible with the help of a few committed volunteers who gave freely of their time to build our local chapter and create an executive team. I look forward to introducing them to you at the general meeting.

A good organization is not only an executive team, it needs members, members like each of you. Your support and involvement are keys to our success. The SMRP was built by members and will continue to grow through members. I am hoping to see and meet as many of you as possible on the 27th.

We have an informative and interesting event planned with outstanding networking opportunities. Come out and meet Maintenance, Reliability and Physical Asset Management professionals like you. I am looking forward to seeing you there!
