Microsoft and Tenova Launched an Integrated System Enabled by Industry 4.0 Technologies

Thanks to this integrated system with multiple integrated sensors and actuators, plant machines will be enabled to manage the specific productive process as well as to provide the operators or AI algorithms with specific information on their own conditions – detected autonomously – through dedicated measurements and reporting with respect to specific events. Decentralized intelligence, by evaluating the information derived from sensors, will elaborate in real time the possible behavioural scenarios, providing functions of monitoring and predictive maintenance. The system may also make available the opportunity to reset specific configurations automatically or to modify functioning parameters to achieve the optimal configuration of the plant. A service portfolio of high added value, thanks to the network connection of the machines, will allow to capitalize the data from machines and plants to optimise production, so to guarantee a prompt remote assistance and minimize downtime. The system comprises of three factors: the possibility to connect the plant machines (involved in each productivity phase) to Azure cloud platform; the high computational power; and the application of provisional algorithms – based on machine learning technologies – available on the cloud platform. The definite advantages of this Industry 4.0 solution are numerous and measurable. The system will allow to increase the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) index, reduce energy consumption, get valuable remote assistance by Tenova specialists to lower maintenance costs and downtime, guarantee flexibility in order management according to customers’ business plans and
equipment conditions, control the plant more effectively through a comprehensive overview of single components. www.tenova.com
