Reducing Total Cost of Ownership with Smart Maintenance.

Abstract:
Most manufacturing companies understand that to improve the bottom line, one needs to reduce cost while sustaining the risks associated with that. Industry 4.0 and Smart Technology today allows for new ways to run and maintain equipment. Introducing new technology in your maintenance strategy will allow you to benefit and drive down the cost at a sustained risk. In this paper, new technologies like smart glasses, remote access, laser trackers, real-time data availability and strategic partnerships with the equipment suppliers will be explained. These are just some of the modern techniques that manufacturers will have to embrace to stay ahead of their competition.
