A reliability revolution based on real time data capturing and AI
Stephan De Vries | | ABB

Regardless of which industry you are in, reliability is a common aspect of digital optimisation and automation of production. Applying ABB Ability's data-driven approach to your production line with Smart Sensors and AI integration gives you a huge advantage. When production no longer stops unplanned through continuous trend measurement and pre-emptive action, you automatically increase output. ABB’s proactive approach keeps you informed of any and all problems, so you only have to intervene when something can actually go wrong, and manage a leaner stock. All this within an open source platform, which transforms your production line into a digital powerhouse where all assets are tuned to each other, continuously communicate with you and are proactively assisted by ABB in case of necessary interventions.
