Building Predictive Maintenance Models
The leading manufacturers are now investing in predictive maintenance, which holds the potential to reduce cost yet increase margin and customer satisfaction. Though traditional techniques such as statistics and manufacturing have helped, the industry is still plagued by serious quality issues and the high cost of business disruption when components fail. Advances in machine learning offer a unique opportunity to improve customer satisfaction and reduce service downtime. This chapter shows how to build models for predictive maintenance using Microsoft Azure Machine Learning. Through examples we will demonstrate how you can use Microsoft Azure Machine Learning to build, validate, and deploy a predictive model for predictive maintenance.
