IBM Booth

Create new asset-based services

Sandvik, a leader in mining equipment, tools and technical solutions, has developed Optimine(R). This solution improves productivity, asset utilization and equipment performance for mining operators.

Improve workforce and asset productivity

Manufacturing a high-tech product needs high-tech production assets and a highly skilled workforce. Still, even the most reliable and well-maintained assets may occasionally fail. See how AI can be leveraged enable your workforce to get to the root cause quickly and provide best possible support.

Ensure full lifecycle compliance

For an aircraft or other complex systems, end to end compliance tracking through a complete product lifecycle can be a rather challenging task. Our aircraft de-icing example visualizes how compliance is tracked end to end.

Minimize downtime

Issues with production assets can cause painful damage in asset performance. Minimizing downtime becomes easier with comprehensive remote monitoring of asset health and scheduling immediate response.

Protect against cyber attacks

Operational technology (OT) assets that have been isolated in the past, suddenly become vulnerable to attacks via the internet. With an integrated view on potential attack patterns, and advanced analytics real-time dashboards, organizations will be able to detect and respond to threats faster.

Effectively manage parts traceability

The origin of each individual component in the complex vehicle systems is difficult to trace, potentially leading to expensive bulk recalls in case of failures detected. See this demo to explore how improved efficiency can be achieved in the traceability of parts and assemblies.
