Predict.AI uses advanced AI and deep learning tools to provide condition-based monitoring and asset health to improve reliability and machine uptime.

In the global port industry, ensuring high uptime and minimizing downtime is crucial for smooth operations. One of the largest port operators in the Middle East has been grappling with frequent unplanned downtime of its cranes, leading to disruptions in cargo handling and increased maintenance, replacement costs. The use of manual intervention to capture basic asset health data has limited the port's visibility into the condition of its mission-critical assets. In this blog, we will explore how Industry.AI can address this challenge by implementing condition-based monitoring for mission-critical assets, such as cranes, to maximize uptime, reduce maintenance costs, and improve overall operational efficiency.
