Welcome to ECC News 2020!

September


ECC will release the RCM database for Process Industry by the end of September


THE ADVANTAGES OF FMEA DATABASE ARE:

 

1 - TO SAFE TIME, EFFORT AND MONEY WHILE PERFORMING THE RCM WORKSHOP.

 

2 - TO USE STANDARTIZED FAILURE MODES, CAUSE AND CONSEQUENCES IN YOUR RCM, CMMS, SAP AND ASSET MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE.

 

3 - TO HAVE THE BASIS FOR THE Maintenance Plan during operation phase.

 

4 - TO CREATE A STANDARTIZE CONCEPT OF FAILURE MODES, CAUSE AND maintenance tasks FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION.

ECC has the pleasure to release the FMEA database for Process Industry


The advantages of FMEA Database are:

1 - To safe time, effort and money while performing the FMEA workshop.

2 - To use standartized failure modes, cause and consequences in your FMEA, RCM, CMMS, SAP and Asset Management software.

3 - To have the basis for the RCM analysis and root cause analysis and safe time, effort and money.

4 - To create a standartize concept of failure modes, cause and consequences for your organization.

Artificial intelligence for Maintenance 4.0



ECC Artificial Intelligence: Web seminar  on 30-07-2020 at 10 am (CEST). "Unsupervised Machine Learning: The Hierarchical Cluster applied for group of equipment Maintence Plan Optmization based on different RUL ."


Abstract:The Hierarchical method aims to cluster the dataset by defining the pairwise distance between the points and based on such distance the algorithm group the data in different clusters. Initially each observed data point are linked based in the pair distance, that enable group data in in different clusters until the dataset is divided in three , two and one cluster.In order to demonstrate the Hierarchical cluster method, a case study considering six heat exchangers with four fans each one will be presented. Let´s consider that such Air coolers has four fan each one. Based on PHM program, all fans bearing is being monitored based on vibration online and the Remaining Useful Life (RUL) as well as the Degradation Progression Signature (DPS). 



EC AI: Web seminar on 02-07-2020 at 10 am. "AI Deep Learning Methodology: The Convolutional Neural Network applied for Remaining Useful Life image Classification."


Abstract: The advent of Industry 4.0 introduced new methods for maintenance that enable faster and reliable use of data for classification. The so-called “Convolutional Neural network” can be applied for classification and regression. Concerning classification, the use of images can be applied to train and test  a model to classify similar images such as equipment failure during production, wrong assembly, equipment failure or degradation during operation or even detect critical degradation pattern based on Remaining Useful life (RUL) and/or State of Health (SoH) graphs figures. In order to apply the CNN methodology is necessary to collect a set of pictures that aims to classify in the future application based on CNN structures. This paper aims to explain the principle of CNN applied to RUL alert when equipment/component achieves a critical level of degradation.

ECC in the Maintenance 4.0 ERA: Physical Asset Management with Prognostic Health Management


Our solution for physical asset management Integrity PRO now is integrated with the ARULE (Adaptive Remaining Useful Life) software from Ridgetop. Such integration enable the following

  • To predict the remaining useful life based on sensor data (online monitoring);
  • To predict the sate of health of an equipment/component based on sensor data (online monitoring);
  • To send alert to maintenance specialist about equipment state of health;
  • To predicted the error of the expected remaining useful life and real remaining useful life;
  • To have a reliable and automatic adaptive prognostic health management solution for critical equipment.
