Today, the world is experiencing a very delicate moment in its history with the pandemic of the new coronavirus. For security reasons, many companies had to suspend their operations, resulting in concern about the direction of the economy, and investing in digital technologies, as Industry 4.0.
The industry is one of the fields that suffer most from this interruption of activities and it is not always possible to get around the situation through the Home Office. Although many sectors can manage their activities remotely, the main pillars of production can hardly do the job from home.
This kind of situation leads us to search for new alternatives, and thanks to new technologies and several studies about industry 4.0, new industrial elements come to the fore as an alternative. Thanks to the increasing adoption of systems that make use of IoT (Internet of Things) and the increasing digitalization of processes and digital transformations adopted by industries, it is possible to remotely control activities that previously required human strength and long execution time.
It is in this scenario that Vidya Software shows one of its main features
Here at Vidya we developed the Vidya Asset Integrity Software, which, using Digital Twin technology, makes it possible to create virtual replicas of complex plants such as Oil and Gas, Paper and Cellulose, and Petrochemicals, for example. Through our software, an example of Industry 4.0 technologies, you have access to operational information in real-time of all the components and elements of a physical plant in a digital application.
The information is collected through sensors implanted in the physical objects and transmitted to Vidya Software. Through the Software, crucial information regarding the integrity of the assets of certain parts and components can be verified remotely. In other words, the software gathers all the crucial information of a complex system and organizes it on its own platform, facilitating the management and access to this data.
Within the software you can select certain areas to be inspected and a service order is automatically generated and sent to a tablet, in which the responsible operator must fill in the inputs according to the real state of each physical part under inspection. After this inspection, the inputs are computed and sent to the Vidya Software platform and then the status of each part is updated within the system, and from that it is possible to have an overview of the real state of each element within the structure under analysis.
Because of the continuous monitoring by which the elements are submitted, the machine learning algorithms are able to perform mathematical estimates and from them, the platform starts to deliver estimated data that can be used to make predictions of when a particular part will fail or when its useful life will be exhausted, and thus, it is possible to have the necessary information in hand so that predictive maintenance can be carried out in a totally optimized manner, generating savings in both manpower and in the necessary budget so that the structure’s operation maintains its operation without taking risks and effectively.
In addition, within the software itself, it is possible to carry out inspection, maintenance and service order management planning through documents generated within the Vidya software platform with the location of a particular part, its functionality within the system, serial number, material, responsible inspector and his inspection schedule.
Such features make the maintenance process much faster, cheaper and more assertive. The interoperability of our software is undoubtedly one of its most notorious features, making the process of managing industrial assets more efficient and enabling management to be done from home. This is what the Industry 4.0 revolution, offers you!
