Utilising Relevant Data
A typical mine site produces approximately 6,000 oil samples in any given year at a total cost of around A$470,000. Given only 20% of this data is used, a great opportunity lies to get full value from your oil sample reports. Each sample is run through a series of laboratory tests resulting in a brief analysis and report. These analyses however, rarely consider historical data and rely entirely on the skills and experience of a single analyst - they can vary significantly from analyst to analyst.
Relialytics ‘Condition Monitoring Supervisor’ (ECS) is an automated system for instantaneous analysis of fluid and onboard data. Recommendations in the form of a work order are automatically uploaded to your CMMS for completion by the maintenance team at the next scheduled service. You’re no longer basing all your decisions on a single individual’s interpretation of data but an objective, data based recommendation.
Relialytics ‘Condition Monitoring Supervisor’ is a semi-automated application that utilises algorithms based on 20 years of data across multiple sites. It not only reviews all oil samples, but also provides consistent interpretations of those samples. You’re no longer basing all your decisions on a single individual’s interpretation.
The system is specifically designed to address known issues and to accept feedback from users so that the algorithms are continually improving. It provides consistent analysis from sample to sample and component to component, taking into account fluid viscosity and condition as well as service intervals.
This clever use of artificial intelligence, takes Engineers and maintenance staff away from interpreting evaluations from oil sample reports and provides a focus for where their skills are needed most. The reports provide clear actions for review and can be directly imported to the CMMS system as a work plan for your maintenance team. And it allows your crew to complete more preventative maintenance by identifying component failure modes and importantly lubrication degradation, often sooner than your current methodology would allow.
You’re essentially accessing a reliability engineer with over 20 years of extensive experience, as a member of your team, guiding your site engineer and maintenance crew to where they’re needed most.
