Accenture will help Italian utility EdiPower reduce equipment failure and service disruptions by deploying a predictive monitoring solution, which draws upon Accenture’s research into improving businesses’ ability to access, analyze and act upon business intelligence in real-time.
Accenture will use SmartSignal’s predictive monitoring system which extracts information from equipment sensors, control systems and business systems and then uses analytical models to predict equipment failures before they occur, reducing forced outages and greatly improving plant availability. The predictive monitoring solution will enable EdiPower to minimize downtime and emergency maintenance by providing EdiPower staff with real-time alerts.
“Most enterprise equipment maintenance today is either conducted reactively, after a costly failure occurs, or routinely, whether maintenance is needed or not,” said Claudio Arcudi, a senior executive in Accenture’s Utilities practice.
“In its quest for high performance, EdiPower should be able to improve its maintenance planning, reduce maintenance costs and minimize plant downtime.”
The predictive monitoring system was populated with data gathered by EdiPower’s local plant site staff and data managers. Data cleansing and model creation were performed by Accenture with support from the utility and SmartSignal.
