Real world applications for predictive plant maintenance with SFI

Maintenance monitoring

When predefined vibration tolerances are violated, SFI initiates the process of creating a SAP maintenance order. Subsequently, follow-up tasks are automatically generated, ensuring that wear-oriented maintenance strategies are effectively employed.

Material monitoring

In the event of a shortfall of a minimum quantity of a production material, SFI promptly triggers the generation of a SAP material withdrawal document. This action is followed by the automatic generation of follow-up tasks, simplifying the process of material replenishment.

KPI monitoring

In the case where a sensor detects a filter clog, SFI swiftly generates a work order for the procurement of a new filter. To streamline this process, follow-up tasks are created to ensure that repairs are scheduled outside of active production hours, minimizing disruptions.

Other applicable monitoring systems:

  • Clean-In-Place (CIP) systems
  • Control cabinet monitoring
  • Filter monitoring
  • Consumption monitoring
  • Level monitoring
  • Piece counting
  • Vibration monitoring
  • Valve monitoring
  • Motor health
  • Current consumption
