Abstract

Technological advancements such as the industrial Internet of Things now allow companies to continuously monitor the operating conditions of expensive equipment using sensors. With the tremendous amount of sensor data flowing in continuously, equipment makers are seeking innovative analytical solutions to turn operational data to help guide their tactical and strategic decisions. Using sensor data on wind turbine operations and service records from a top Fortune 100 company in the energy industry, we showcase techniques to map out operational-level data for analysis, and develop several analytical models (a sequence analysis, a logistic regression and a survival model) to help predict and evaluate equipment failure risks. Our analyses highlight the significant value propositions of sensor data in the big data era. Practical implications as well as extensions of the proposed predictive models are discussed.
