Targeted support well before things break down: The Bosch Software Innovations solution recognizes impending stoppages long before they arise, enabling maintenance work to be scheduled before production comes to an expensive standstill. At Hannover Messe, the world’s leading trade show for industry, Bosch Software Innovations is demonstrating live how to make the entire maintenance process more efficient by connecting industrial facilities using the software suite.
Whenever faulty machinery brings production to a standstill, high and unplanned costs quickly mount up. But predictive maintenance leaps into action long before potential faults present themselves. This opens up entirely new avenues for manufacturing companies to design more efficient maintenance processes.
The Bosch Software Innovations solution takes a comprehensive approach. The software suite supports a company’s complete maintenance processes, taking into account all steps from the automatic and early detection of machine faults through to scheduling and transparent documentation.
Machine condition data are sent to the software, which analyzes the data to pick up any irregularities using clearly defined rules. This allows accurate predictions of faults and of when failures will occur.
Central service portal
A service portal provides a venue for monitoring all process steps and for organizing any necessary follow-up measures. Interfaces with third-party systems, such as ERP or CRM systems, make it possible to offer complementary remote maintenance services. These include arranging technician visits or the automated ordering of spare parts.
Software complements existing systems and opens up new market opportunities
The software is also an ideal complement for companies that already operate remote maintenance or condition monitoring systems. Predictive maintenance goes far beyond traditional maintenance procedures: it makes it much easier for customers to schedule maintenance work, while at the same time highlighting ways for them to conserve resources. This allows machinery manufacturers to optimize their service portfolio for customers, generate increased sales, and acquire a better market position by differentiating themselves from the competition.
