Maybe this is a peek into your future, or maybe it reminds you of the past, either way let us imagine you are starting your digital transformation journey and have identified an initial project to optimize asset availability. One way this will be achieved is to provide your maintenance teams with an asset monitoring tool to enable them to work smarter and proactively identify machine failures before they occur. Some questions to ask yourself:Do I look at multiple vendors, considering the many moving parts across many locations that may or may not be more than I really need? Or,Do I search for a solution that is specific to my needs; one that is fit for purpose that I can deploy fast and without losing valuable time? It may appear that the answer is obviously the second choice, but you would be surprised how many companies take the first route.
