3rd May 2016 - Condition Monitoring Systems
Condition Monitoring/Asset Management has been employed since the 1950s. An example of this is Condition Based Maintenance of rotating machines using monitored condition data. The advent of cheap computational power and public/private networking has made this area one of the fastest growing technologies today.
This talk looks at the field of Condition Monitoring across several industries and how it is revolutionising asset management and predictive maintenance to provide safer transport, protection of ageing assets and hitherto unparalleled optimisation of complex mechanical, electrical and electronic systems.
Light refreshments are available on the evening. Please arrive around 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
Please park at the rear of the Newton Building (explain to security via the intercom that your are attending the BCS Event) and enter through the rear of the Newton Building vis the conservatory.
