Optimization in Machine Tool Maintenance

Use Case

Real-time condition-based monitoring for discrete manufacturing equipment

Gaining visibility to the most common predictors of production machinery failure can be an expensive challenge. The missing link for many is the ability to gain real insights from the large amount of data available from IoT connected machines. Additionally, efficiently managing to the workflows that machine failures trigger can be equally daunting.

Condition-based monitoring is an ideal approach to integrating machine data with existing business processes. Customers gain the benefit of insightful data that can integrate with their existing ERP and business process platforms to expeditite tasks related to proactive machine tool maintenance. 

We have a solution

Improving condition-based maintenance through real-time data, ERP and logistics integration

This solution use case, provided by Atos on the MindSphere® platform, enables robust monitoring capability across a variety of production machines for discrete manufacturers.

With low-cost monitoring sensors and data streams linked through the MindSphere platform, and into their ERP, Business Process and Logistics platforms, customers gain the benefits of proactive machine maintenance and parts ordering with minimul disruption to existing business processes.

Condition-based maintenance schedules for key production machines help reduce production downtime. The amount of time dedicated to manual machine inspections across their production environment should decrease through this condition monitoring approach. Logistics related time and expense related to machine maintenance will reduce as well.


  • Real-time condition data for production machinery.
  • Alert data is actionable and easy to understand within existing workflows. Maintenance can quickly take action as necessary without new training.
  • Integration with ERP, business process and machine data  


  • Gain insights to each machine and the operation being performed.
  • Reduce unplanned production downtime.
  • Improve the accuracy and effectiveness of your maintenance schedules.
  • Allow your staff to quickly respond to conditions and actions with workflow integration for maintenance and logistics.
  • Improve the timeliness and accuracy of data and reduce manual inspection time.
