Machinery protection systems are generally thought of as a necessity that acts as an “earthquake switch” for your critical machinery. Often, these systems are stranded in hard-to-reach areas and are not connected to the plant’s data processes. They are typically hard to configure and require many spare parts to deal with the different types of signals. New technologies are emerging to deliver valuable predictive data from the protection system, making it a contributor to improving plant and asset reliability.
Topic to be discussed include:
• Traditional protection systems are evolving to provide more value.
• Mobile applications are making interaction with these systems more efficient.
• Flexible I/O is reducing spare-parts inventory and allowing late configuration changes.

The concept of Reliability and creating a Reliable Manufacturing Process is on everyone’s minds these days. Constrained budgets and fragile economies are driving many organizations to use reliability to realize more from their existing assets. However, improving reliability is not as simple as increasing asset performance.
Improving reliability first requires understanding your current level of performance. Only then can you figure out how to improve that performance. Some questions that immediately come to mind:
— Do you know how you compare to your competition and your peers?
— Do you know your reliability weaknesses and why?
— Do you have an organizational structure that supports reliability?
— Do people in your organization even know what reliability is?
These are just a few of many questions that will determine if you have a chance of becoming more reliable.
Watch this webinar to acquire answers to these and other questions and to learn why some reliability journeys reach their goals and why other fail.
