This learning path makes use of a manufacturing use case to demonstrate monitoring the location and health of your assets. Create asset metrics and rules, and configure notifications for asset-related issues. Define anomalies for potential asset issues and create predictions to proactively schedule maintenance.
Acme Corporation, the fictional company in our use case, specializes in injection molding, assembly, and manufacturing services. They focus on custom molding of things like performance parts. Acme Corporation is project driven - their jobs run from a couple of days to a couple of weeks, from a hundred to a few thousand parts. Their customers range from large contractors to lone inventors.
Acme Corporation does not want to be a shoot-and-ship job shop. They are constantly moving towards automation. For the last one year, the company is using Robots. Robots cost only $3 to $5/hr, much less than the operator.
Acme needs to ensure optimum environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity, for the proper functioning of their robots and plant. Too much humidity and the robots can rust. High temperature may lead to equipment burnout. On the other hand, too low a temperature can mean high air-conditioning power bills.
Acme also needs to ensure optimal performance of its robots and plant at all times with minimal downtimes. It needs automatic monitoring of any equipment problems and robot errors. Acme should ideally be able to predict, and proactively address potential problems in advance. The plant Operations Managers should not need to monitor dashboards 24x7. Automatic notifications should be triggered for potential issues and problems.
Oracle can help Acme Corporation using the Oracle Internet of Things Asset Monitoring Cloud Service. Oracle IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud Service creates a digital twin version of Acme Corporation's IOT-enabled organizational assets, and lets them monitor the location, condition, and utilization of their assets.
As an Acme Administrator, your responsibility is to set up the digital twin versions of Acme Corp's organization and assets. And as an Operations Manager, you will use Oracle IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud Service to monitor the location and health of Acme's IoT-enabled assets. To make sure you receive timely notification of issues, you'll create rules that generate alert and incident notifications when optimal environmental conditions are exceeded. To make sure the issues are addressed promptly, you'll create mobile notifications (SMS) for field technicians.
You will define anomalies to detect deviations from normal asset behavior, and to flag potential device issues in time. You will create predictions to detect any potential issues in advance, and to schedule maintenance proactively.
