Kick-off: WiDE for Asset Performance Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance

We are proud to announce that we started end of February a project to assess WiDE, our data validation software, with a major player in the chemical industry to improve asset performance monitoring and predictive maintenance.

In the process industry, next to safety, reliability is the key topic that operations have to ensure, monitor and constantly improve. That’s why asset performance monitoring is most of the time part of the continuous improvement program put in place.

The final goals are on one side to reduce unscheduled downtime and on the other side to improve planning of turnaround activities by getting a better insight into asset performance in turn reducing risks of unforeseen investments/activities and extra time needed.

Let’s now make our customer happy by delivering an improved insight into asset performances and demonstrate the capabilities of WiDE, our data validation software.
