E2E monitoring helps CERTUSS to reduce costs – through maintenance at planned and optimal points in time.
Predictive Maintenance

Predictive maintenance based on IoT and big data

For 55 years, CERTUSS has manufactured steam generators for industrial purposes and supplies 99 different industries around the world. Steam generator outages can cause great damage and paralyze industrial processes.
Standardized E2E solution combining sensor technology and real-time data analysis: Winner of the 2016 Aecus Innovation Award. Transfer of sensor data via M2M communication to the Cloud of Things. Detection of anomalies via sensor data using big data technologies. Visualizations help experts evaluate errors. Early detection of potential damage helps avoid penalties and outage costs.

Trends & drivers

Predictive maintenance as a standardized plan-build-run solution
Proactive planning facilitates maintenance and repair approaches based on mathematical and statistical methods. The Internet of Things, M2M, high-performance sensor technology and big data form the basis of digital maintenance scenarios.

Customer requirements

Reduced costs through maintenance at planned and optimal points in time. Damage avoidance through the replacement of parts before outage losses can occur. Competitive advantage: increasing availability and improved reliability improves customer satisfaction.
