Periodic Reporting for period 1 - SMILE (Smart Measuring and Inspection for industrial Legacy Equipment)
Reporting period: 2016-12-01 to 2017-05-31
Proper maintained technical installations perform better, have lower operational costs and have a smaller footprint. Many legacy installations are hard to maintain due to the lack of data. When service crews have the right data, maintenance can be done at the right moment. By doing so, the operational cost can be kept as low as possible, undesired emissions be kept lowest and parts can be used as long as possible. This saves money and materials. (Chemical) plants can operate more competitive, compared on a global scale. This helps saving employment in Europe and thus ultimately R&D capacities.
Our overall goal is to design a good series of clever hard- and software that helps crews and management to perform their tasks easier, with higher quality and with higher efficiency.
