While simple fixes may cost a few thousand dollars, lost revenue from equipment failures can run into the millions of dollars in lost productivity and replacement costs. There can be longer-term impacts, too, if the downtime inhibits a manufacturer’s ability to meet customer needs. That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. Cheaper oil, for example, may save money initially, but it requires more frequent changes and provides less protection to the equipment, which could shorten component life. For many companies, the short-term savings simply aren’t worth the longterm cost risk. “Some companies don’t realize that they may be able to reduce their overall maintenance costs significantly by spending more up front on better quality lubricants,” Saffell says. “Their equipment may last longer and they are likely to see

Industry standards have been established to ensure performance, consistency, and interoperability between network equipment vendors. However, the consistent implementation and operation of these standards become even more critical as speeds and bandwidth increase. At the fiber infrastructure level, this also means more testing may be needed beyond the basic fiber end-face inspection certification and Tier 1 testing. This white paper explores Tier 2 optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) testing and examines its relationship to Tier 1 testing and how inspection plays into both. This paper defines Tier 2 testing and explains when it is needed. It also addresses the OTDR complexity argument.

As high-density IT equipment becomes the new normal, the amount of heat generated continues to grow substantially – as does the challenge of efficiently cooling data centers. Traditional perimeter and/or raised floor computer room air conditioning systems increasingly struggle to remove concentrated heat loads. In many small to mid-size data centers, implementing close-coupled cooling solutions can be a highly effective and efficient strategy for supplementing cooling capacity. Located in or near server racks, close-coupled air conditioning units focus cooling where it is needed most without lowering the temperature of the entire data center. In addition, these modular solutions make it easy to reconfigure cooling to handle new equipment or eliminate hot spots. As a result, using close-coupled portable, rack-mounted or row-based air conditioning units tailored to your specific data center needs can boost cooling efficiency and add valuable flexibility.

Cooling tends to take a back seat to other concerns when server rooms and small to mid-size data centers are first built. As computing needs grow, increased heat production can compromise equipment performance and cause shutdowns. Haphazard data center expansion creates cooling inefficiencies that magnify these heat-related problems. End users may assume they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is often unnecessary. In most cases, low-cost rack cooling best practices will solve heat-related problems. Best practices optimize airflow, increase efficiency, prevent downtime and reduce costs.

One of the fundamental decisions in the design of data centers, server rooms and network closets is which uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to use. You cannot be certain that the power you receive from your local utility will be suitable for your equipment, or that it will always be available. And even when you are receiving good-quality power from the utility, equipment inside your facility (such as electric motors) can introduce power problems. A network/server UPS system conditions input power 24x7 to ensure that your equipment always receives reliable power and protection from damaging and disruptive power problems. A network/server UPS system also supports your equipment during power failures, providing enough battery backup runtime to outlast shorter outages. During longer outages, the UPS system will provide enough runtime to save files and gracefully shut down systems or to ensure that equipment is powered until standby generators are ready to support the load.

When you’re designing a data center, server room or network closet, deciding which racks to deploy and how to configure them should be at the top of your list. Just like building a house, the surface details may steal the spotlight, but it’s the quality of the underlying foundation that makes the difference between success and frustration. Racks organize IT equipment, such as servers and network switches, into standardized assemblies that make efficient use of space and other resources. Depending on the options you choose, they can also improve power protection, cooling, cable management, device management, physical security, mobility, ease of installation and protection from harsh environmental conditions. Choosing the right racks and configuring them to match your needs will ensure that your IT equipment operates reliably and efficiently, saving your organization from costly downtime and other needless expenses.

Companies that manufacture industrial equipment find themselves in a unique place among manufacturers: • Their products can range from small components to mammoth machines for mines or mills. • They rarely order large production runs and may be called on to create a process that results in an order of one. • Their markets impose challenging constraints. Customers want more choices, more options, more extras, and more features. And they want the order to be fulfilled sooner. The competitive environment is forcing model cycles to shrink, pressuring manufacturers to accelerate processes that are unable to keep pace. Dassault Systèmes DELMIA has assembled an industry-specific set of roles for industrial equipment manufacturers that brings these challenges under control.

An industrial equipment manufacturer invested heavily in a number of different apps for their customers and partners. In theory, these apps made their lives easier by helping them schedule maintenance, order spare parts, generate financial quotes, amongst several other things. Although these apps were feature-rich, adoption was very low. The problem as that these apps were created in silos by different business units without validating the need of end users. The investment was going to waste. Infosys was invited to reinvent the wheel of app development.
