Time-to-Value During Crisis Time

The holiday season was well underway but little did the onsite team know, a mechanical fault had begun to
form within the a filler motor serving the line producing their most popular product. Within days of the
diagnosis, the problem had escalated to near failure-levels. Augury’s Reliability Team immediately contacted the
plant and with their help, confirmed bearing failure was imminent. Given the advance notice, the team was able
to proactively fix the motor during planned downtime, preventing catastrophic failure of the filler. The repair took
only 8 hours to complete.
