Preventing Failures with Predictive Maintenance Webinar

The science of predicting system failures with Microsoft Azure

Recorded September 2017

What would it mean to your organization if you could predict system failures or quality issues before they happen? Preventing failures can help your organization reduce unscheduled downtime, waste, and rework – and avoid costly disruptions in operations.

With predictive analytics, it’s possible to proactively manage maintenance and improve operational efficiency by discovering the chance of a failure before it takes place. In this past webinar, we discussed how you can utilize Azure Machine Learning, R, and the Cortana Intelligence Suite to predict and prevent system failure, and explored the benefits of calculating KPIs such as Remaining Useful Life, Time to Failure, and Failure within a certain time.
