UPTIME Predictive Maintenance:
Lessons Learned and Best Practices in White Goods Industry

The UPTIME 1st live webinar will highlight the differences between classic preventive maintenance and predictive maintenance using historical data and real time data as well as illustrate benefits of predictive maintenance by a concrete implementation in the White Goods Industry. The UPTIME white goods business case deals with Whirlpool’s complex automatic production line, which produces drums for clothes dryers. The business case aims to anticipate planned intervention on machines, to reduce unexpected breakdowns and delay other interventions, thus save money and improve safety.

Moreover, in the webinar you will be provided with three main important lessons learned as well as best practices for manufacturing companies to get started with predictive maintenance.

The webinar is free of charge, dedicated to people who want to learn and see a concrete implementation of the UPTIME Predictive Maintenance Platform in a real business case. It will be interactive, where you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the experts panel and we will be happy to receive your feedback. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.
