The Client was a large Water Utility that needed to predict failure for their water pumps. AI Modes were generated for the equipment using historical data parameters for the pumps along with the past equipment down-time instances. Then, real-time equipment data was gathered from the remote equipment using IoT sensors and uploaded to our secure cloud. This data was used along with the historical AI models to make equipment failure predictions. This early identification of issues helped the client deploy limited maintenance resources more costeffectively, maximize equipment uptime ultimately improving financial positioning, & customer satisfaction.
Our goal was to explore how artificial intelligence can lead to improved metrics across all assets that require routine maintenance and have a positive impact on our customers, employees, and bottom-line. After thoroughly evaluating the client’s challenges we used Minsky™ to accurately model historical data of equipment downtime instances along with past data parameters for the pumps. This process included the collection of pump data using IoT sensors from remote locations. Once the AI models were generated by Minsky™ for the selected algorithms and historical data parameters for the pumps along with past actual pump downtimes, predictions for future maintenance were made using real-time equipment data which is gathered from IoT sensors and uploaded to our secure cloud. Prediction data from Minsky™ was also integrated with 3rd party data visualization applications like Tableau.
This process was done in 3 steps:
