High-tech maintenance system to upgrade industry

For Europe to remain competitive on the world market, it must ensure that its industry runs smoothly and efficiently. Advances in wireless maintenance systems can render maintenance in industry a much easier task.
High-tech maintenance system to upgrade industry
The EU-funded project 'Dynamic decisions in maintenance' (Dynamite) developed a novel high-tech maintenance approach based on advanced communications and sensor technology, complete with ingenious diagnostic and prognostic features.

The project worked on a prototype for a global mobile monitoring e-maintenance infrastructure, which involved developing appropriate devices and software. These included wireless telemetry and online instrumentation, as well as smart tags that document history, identity and communications.

Dynamite worked on creating a low-cost mobile wireless device to enhance access and reporting through e-maintenance. It also worked on an online oil sensor combining particle counting, distribution and composition in a single instrument.

The project successfully developed DynaWeb, an e-maintenance solution based on scenario analysis of future industrial needs and trends for plant operators, manufacturers, transportation companies and more. The system includes 28 integrated hardware and software components that provide flexible online monitoring and maintenance data at many levels, communicating with handheld mobile computers to facilitate the task. It also includes training services and decision support based on technical and economic considerations.

DynaWeb was tested in real-life applications on industrial installations including a milling machine, machining tools, foundry hydraulics, maritime lubrication system and automatic stamping machine. It demonstrated its strength as a viable set of tools and methods for cost-effective maintenance technologies that encourage profitability and competitiveness.
