The initial portfolio of IMA+ is composed by seven research and development projects, aimed at technological solutions in three technological areas:

Advanced Systems in Reliability and Maintenance

The challenges of real-time monitoring, non-productive times, predictability and resource management, equipment availability, among others, will be addressed by the research experts of the Universidad de Chile and the Universidad de Santiago. The purpose of this technological area is to develop three commercial level solutions:

Related projects:

Project 1
Monitoring and prognosis fault systems for industrial equipment using deep learning tools.

Project 7
Predictive systems to support the maintenance management of industrial assets based on computational intelligence tools.

Project 4
Development of a device that integrates biosensors and labor fatigue prognosis methodologies.

Digital Twins

A Digital Twin refers to a digital replica of a physical systems, in which operations can be modeled, monitored and controlled in real time. In addition, it is possible to simulate, test and evaluate changes without negatively affecting the system operation and being able to implement those changes that have a positive effect.
