1. “KamomeX” Digital Maintenance Platform
Businesses that own equipment are faced with issues such as the need to streamline while guaranteeing stable operations, as well as the need to invest in new equipment while ensuring that technology is carried forward as workforce ages. In response to these challenges, Hitachi has developed its “KamomeX” digital maintenance platform, with the ability to visualize equipment operation data while seamlessly detecting anomalies, diagnosing causes of failure, and predicting progress. This platform enhances maintenance while supporting the management and operation of equipment assets, providing contract services, minimizing maintenance costs, reducing unplanned stoppage risks, and achieving value by improving business soundness.
KamomeX is provided as a cloud service via the Lumada Solution Hub, and offers advantages such as low-code data analysis that is easy to use for analysts lacking the specialized knowledge of data scientists, machine learning operation management functions for use by equipment managers that can assimilate the diagnostic results reached by technicians skilled at using equipment, and functions that can handle the issues that tend to occur with digitalization. Moving forward, the plan is to use methods such as progress prediction for predicting component life and diagnose failure causes using maintenance knowledge gained on-site, by adopting Hitachi’s unique equipment maintenance skill digitalization technology (implementation period: FY2022).
As a result, not only will it be possible to maintain an optimal equipment state through equipment anomaly detection and failure cause diagnosis analysis, but even if an abnormality is detected, rush service or remote support instruction and service can reduce the customer’s maintenance burden.
