UBITECH showcases UPTIME results and their applicability in industrial use cases in the SMART INDUSTRIES track of the GLOBAL INDUSTRIE show, taken place in Lyon, France, from 5-8 March, 2019. GLOBAL INDUSTRIE brings together at EUREXPO, a) the entire industrial ecosystem, from start up to major customer, including subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and industrial solution providers, competitiveness clusters, research centers and incubators; b) the whole added value chain: R&D, design, production, maintenance, services, training; c) all the user industries: Transport and mobility, Energy and infrastructure, Food industry, Consumer goods, Chemicals, Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals and Mechanical engineering. Welcomed by 96% of visitors and 88% of exhibitors at its launch, unparalleled in its extent, both in terms of its size and its scope, as well as its international reach, this event brings together four complementary shows, each of which is a leader in its field, whilst preserving their individual identities: MIDEST (international reference for subcontracting know-how), SMART Industries (for or the connected, collaborative and efficient smart factory), INDUSTRIE (for production technologies and equipment) and TOLEXPO (for working metal in sheets, coils, tubes and sections).
UPTIME reframes predictive maintenance strategy by proposing a unified framework and to create an associated unified information system in alignment to the aforementioned framework. The project extends and unifies new digital, e-maintenance services and tools in order to exploit the full potential of a predictive maintenance strategy. UPTIME enables manufacturing companies having installed sensors to fully exploit the availability of huge amounts of data with respect to the implementation of a predictive maintenance strategy and enables manufacturing companies to reach Gartner’s level 4 of data analytics maturity (“optimized decision-making”) in order to improve physically-based models and to synchronize maintenance with quality management, production planning and logistics options. UBITECH leads the technical coordination of the project and is responsible for the delivery of the integrated predictive maintenance platform. UPTIME is presented in SMART INDUSTRIES through live demos of the platform application in three big industries: Whirlpool (automatic drum line), FFT (aviation) and MAILLIS (cold rolling mills line).
