Predictive maintenance is one of the most frequently used buzzwords in t Industry 4.0. "Predict the future!" This promise often seems suspect and unnecessary to machine manufacturers and operators. Not so!
Increasing complexity, shorter development cycles, and growing diversity of variants with a high degree of individualization are challenges humans can master at the machine. But not completely, because humans are not scalable. The solution is to use your industrial data to develop data-driven services, like predictive maintenance.
