Digitalization in Service and Maintenance—Process Industry in Transition


Where once technicians used a clipboard and a pen, remote monitors, smartphones, and tablets with the appropriate applications, software solutions, and real-time information are now the tools of choice.

On November 18, 2020, the events at the second Pepperl+Fuchs Online Summit will focus on the topic of “Digitalization in Service and Maintenance”. Experts from Pepperl+Fuchs, ecom, and a variety of other partner companies will highlight a number of exciting applications from the process industry and will provide insight into the future of smart maintenance. Keynotes, presentations, and panel discussions will analyze the following topics in more detail:

  • For a long time, mobile devices have been used for much more than communication. What role do smartphones and tablets currently play in inspection and servicing in industrial environments and hazardous areas? How have the working environment and working methods changed since mobile devices were introduced? What are the key advantages of this for users and businesses?
  • Remote assistance and predictive maintenance have become popular buzzwords in the age of Industry 4.0. What do these two concepts encompass and what challenges do businesses face during their implementation?
  • Experts estimate that remote support for maintenance tasks will account for 60 % of augmented reality applications in the future. What challenges does this pose and what potential can this offer for maintenance?
