“Sensordata, domain knowledge & data science: towards 0% unplanned downtime” – Presented by Simon Jagers, Semiotic Labs, at the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, special edition, 23 May 2017, Messe Düsseldorf Congress Center, Düsseldorf , Germany.
Sensors are a key component of smart condition monitoring solutions. Maintenance professionals first and foremost require any solution to be highly reliable and allow for enough time to schedule maintenance before breakdowns occur. Algorithms and existing data sources from PLC’s, processes and other sources can result in meaningful results, but mostly fail to achieve the levels of reliability maintenance professionals expect. For that to happen, OEM’s, Service Providers and Asset Owners must consciously invest in sensor technology, data science and long-term projects based on business cases.
About Simon Jagers
Simon Jagers founded Semiotic Labs early in 2015, with the ambition to enable 100% predictable maintenance. His professional career – both as an entrepreneur and working for firms such as Dell, Oracle and EMC – has evolved around data and the desire to turn data into information and action.
About Semiotic Labs
Semiotic Labs is a machine learning firm focused on condition monitoring. We believe that in 5 to 10 years, 0% unplanned downtime will be the new norm. For that to happen, sensors, domain knowledge and data science must work together and turn data into actionable information about when and why equipment fails.

What: Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference – Special edition in partnership with Managing Aging Plants Conference & Expo
When: May 23, 2017
Where: Messe Düsseldorf Congress Center – Düsseldorf, Germany
Scope: The challenges posed by an aging plant cannot be seen in isolation as a simple economic equation balancing profit and loss to risk and safety; the situation is far more complex. Many of today’s managers do not have the academic background or the detailed engineering knowledge at their fingertips, which is essential to make the correct budgeting and strategy plans and keep facilities not only economically viable, but also productive and safe.
Similarly, many companies no longer have the skills and competencies in-house to tackle the problems that can be posed by an aging plant. When knowledge is not immediately at hand, being able to ask the right questions is vital. The aim of the event in Düsseldorf is to help industry professionals in ensuring facilities continue to compete successfully in the long-term.
Topics that will be addressed at the MAP Europe 2017 Conference include:
- Smart industries
- Condition-Based Maintenance/ Smart Infrastructure
- Safety leadership and safety culture
- Turnaround management
- Monitoring and assessment
Target: The conference enjoys strong participation from end-users, engineering companies, suppliers, notified bodies and governments with a clear emphasis on applications and practical experiences.
