Plug Me In: optimising the human sensor at Eraring Power Station
In a utopian world, all of the plant, equipment and facilities in an industrial facility would have enough automated and connected sensors to be able to detect any form anomalous activity or undesirable condition in the plant. In the real world this is never the case.
Enter the “Human Sensor”, experienced operational personnel who visually inspect defined locations in the plant. Looking and listening for signs of anomalies and defects, such as changes in equipment vibration, temperature, levels of sight glasses, readings of manual pressure gauges and checking for leaks.
The successful completion of these activities provides two key challenges for operational managers:
- On any given day the work load varies significantly and organising and scheduling the personnel required to do the inspections can be challenging.
- Ensuring the consistency of the collection and interpretation information required. No two humans see, hear and interpret in exactly the same way.
This is a broad, complex challenge with quite a few variables. Your mission is to enable Origin employees and contractors on site to collect data and interpret it in a meaningful way...more details to come!
