IOT AND MAINTENANCE

Using IoT for maintenance requires
careful consideration on several
different levels, especially for older
bakeries and smaller ones.
forms allow the makers of different PLCs to
communicate. This data can be put in an ERP
platform or some other [manufacturing execution] system that can take that data and create
algorithms and analytics for the data to make
management decisions. "
While digital technologies have become
more affordable, retrofitting legacy equipment
must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
" Rarely is it cost-effective to replace the
entire control system on unit machines just
to gain IoT data, " Mr. Brixey said. " Normally
modern equipment has advanced in ways that
provide additional benefits that legacy equipment won't possess by just enhancing the data
collection. Ovens and batching systems might
be the only exception to the rule. "

no surprise that by collecting more data you
have a better chance of determining the next
failure before it happens. Learn from this first
introduction to IoT and capture the savings
before throwing more capital at additional

When dealing with legacy equipment, he
added, the biggest challenge often involves
finding the appropriate integrator who understands a particular bakery's needs and can recommend the best options.
" Look for references, and do your homework. Lots of people will claim to have what
you need, but verify this first, " Mr. Brixey said.
" Ask suppliers how they have integrated the latest sensors and predictive software into their
equipment. Ask them specifically what their
data showed them and how that led to new
improvements in their design. Ask them how
many of these latest models they have running
in the field, and see if you can get references to
call to verify. "
In the end, it takes more of a gut feeling or
a sixth sense to properly invest in IoT and predictive maintenance.
