Sustainable operations: optimize criitical asset performance with AI

14 February 2024, America 11:30 am - 1:00 pm EST

How is AI helping increase asset lifetimes, optimizing asset maintenance and reduce operational downtime and defects?

Asset-intensive organizations are faced with many challenges such as aging infrastructure & fixed assets that are roughly 20 years old, high turnover rate of industrial workers reaching approximately 50%, and increasing investor and client demands for sustainable operations. All of these contribute to the ongoing need to optimize their operations and extend the life of their assets to improve productivity and reliability while reducing costs in a safe and sustainable manner.
In the midst of these challenges, however, there are significant opportunities. New and cutting-edge technologies—especially solutions powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)—are paving the way to create new efficiencies, uncover rich data, and automate mission-critical processes like was never done before. Companies that embrace these technologies position themselves well to scale their operations, enhance ROI, and and optimize their assets in a sustainable and reliable manner.
Join IBM and a select group of your peers in this Meet the Boss Virtual roundtable to share common challenges, learn the industry latest, and hear best practices in the asset management space.
