In the 1980s, for very expensive equipment such as a single un-spared compressor in an ammonia plant, industrial manufacturing deployed machinery monitoring. The risk of huge production losses justified extraordinary expense. In such “experiments,” highly trained specialist engineers with state-of-the-art super-computers and expensive vibration sensors were dedicated full-time to one […]
