Asset Integrity Management integrates 3-D models (created from laser-generated “point clouds”) with TBs of unstructured data. This marriage allows enterprises to significantly reduce planning time and expedite decision making as teams from all over the world can access actionable data in real-time. This enhances the ability to design and build new facilities and modify existing environments with proactive maintenance and increased operational efficiency in mind.
Asset Integrity Management provides expedited access to asset maintenance, performance & location/ tracking information, allowing for optimized inspection and repair activities, and planning of new workloads. With immediate access to relevant asset information such as P&IDs, specification tolerances, maintenance logs, instruction manuals and more, workers can make more informed decisions faster, with significantly less time wasted searching for information.
Degradation profiles provide green, yellow and red statuses for all sensored assets, empowering proactive maintenance planning. Asset Integrity Management reduces time wasted manually servicing healthy assets, increases resources available to work on at-risk assets and minimizes the chance of catastrophic asset failures. In addition, real-time sensor readings vastly improve response times in case of emergency.
Physical Asset Management remains the single largest business improvement opportunity in the 21st century.Howard Penrose Ph.D., Author, "Physical Asset Management for the Executive" (2008)
Companies operating in asset-intensive industries, such as processing, refining, and petrochemicals, are challenged with continuously increasing productivity, ensuring asset reliability, and improving profitability – all without increasing risk.
Innovation Delivery as a Service (IDAAS) is CBT’s proven process that de-risks innovation and gives you the best chance for digital transformation success. Delivering real results through constant evolution, transformation, rapid iteration, innovation, and support.
Connected Worker uses intrinsically safe devices to deliver actionable data to key personnel in real time.
How CBT Uses RealWear to Implement Industrial IoT
CB Technologies’ Founder & CEO, Kelly Ireland, sits down to discuss the importance of our relationship with RealWear. This video was made at the RealWear Summit where CB Technologies was a Platinum Sponsor and gave presentations on implementing Idustrial IoT technologies at Texmark’s Refinery of the Future.
CB Technologies Becomes Inaugural CEI Member at HPE Discover 2019
June has been a big month for the CBT team, sponsoring and exhibiting at three major national conferences over the first three weeks of the month. After attending PTC LiveWorx, June 10-13, we headed straight out to Las Vegas for HPE Discover.HPE Discover is more focused on information technology (IT) than LiveWorx, but our goals remained the same: demonstrate that our methodology for Industrial IoT is unique and effective. We wanted to show that CBT is truly ahead of the crowd because of ou…
This Chemical Plant Cut Maintenance Costs In Half With HPE’s IoT Offering
Texmark Chemicals, a petrochemical plant in Galena Park, Texas, needed an efficient way to inspect the equipment in its facility. It turned to HPE and its partner CB Technologies, which transformed Texmark into a “refinery of the future.” “We came up with a solution that helps the worker in the chemical plant to achieve processes in 90 percent less time,” said Kelly Ireland, founder and CEO of CB Technologies, an HPE Aruba Platinum partner based in Orange, Calif. CB Technologies helped to …
Object detection technology: The next big thing
Seagate Technology inspects tens of millions of computer storage drive parts daily. The media that goes into them. The heads. The wafers. The completed assemblies and outer shells. For much of the company's history, this inspection was a time-consuming and costly process. To achieve the quality the global company’s customers expect, hard disk and solid-state drives would be tested once, twice, or even three times before human beings gave them a final blessing in what’s known as sequential in…
What the intelligent edge is and why it’s useful
The term "Intelligent Edge" is used in many ways, but perhaps the best way to think of it is as a place. The edge is where the action is. It's a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, your house, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a telecommunications outpost, a sports arena, a battlefield, in your car, in the sky, or under the sea. It's everywhere everything is, and it's where the "things" are in the Internet of Things (IoT). The edge is "intelligent" because …
Edge computing yields deeper insights, faster
Edge computing drives smarter operations in every industry. Learn how. There are many different kinds of edges: a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a sports arena, and more. Massive amounts of data are created and can be collected and analyzed at every edge. When used in context, and in a timely manner, this real-time data can yield all sorts of interesting insights. Edge computing use cases include: Improving saf…
