Servi Group used Industrial DataOps software provided by Cognite, including Cognite Data Fusion™, to build Servi Monitor, a software application that enables smart monitoring of machines.
30-50% reduction in downtime
10-40% reduction in maintenance costs
10-20% reduction in energy use and emissions
In the manufacturing industry, machine data such as temperature changes, air pressure, and oil quality is often collected manually by technicians when they inspect the machines. These inspections are often calendar-based, an approach that can have its downsides:
Servi Group, Norway’s largest supplier of hydraulic equipment, wanted to combine smart sensors, cloud technology, and its domain expertise accumulated over more than 100 years, into a product that streamlines machine monitoring. Such a product would help manufacturers avoid downtime, optimize maintenance work, and cut energy consumption.
To develop the product, Servi needed a data platform that extracts large quantities of industrial data, makes connections between previously disparate data sources, and presents the information to users for decision-making.
Servi used the Industrial DataOps platform Cognite Data Fusion™ to build Servi Monitor, a software application that enables smart monitoring of machines. With Servi Monitor, users can:
In addition to machine data, Servi Monitor can also connect to external data sources such as electricity prices, weather forecasts, traffic, documents, or nonphysical measurements.
One example is energy use. Servi Monitor can calculate energy consumption per equipment for a given period of time and generate recommendations for how to optimize energy use without negatively affecting production.
Cognite Data Fusion™ serves as the data foundation for Servi Monitor. The Industrial DataOps platform provides instant access to trustworthy and contextualized data, making it easy for Servi to develop, operationalize, and scale Servi Monitor.
By digitalizing and automating repetitive, time-consuming tasks, Servi Monitor enables equipment manufacturers and asset owners to optimize production and cut waste. With a full, real-time overview of the performance of all their machines, asset owners can shift to a more efficient approach to maintenance based on equipment condition.
Servi Monitor is estimated to reduce downtime by 30-50%, maintenance costs by 10-40%, and energy use and emissions by 10-20%.
With real-time monitoring and our cutting-edge expertise in hydraulics, electrical systems, and automation, you can bring your machine fleet into Industry 4.0--and be fully equipped for a digital future.
