Predictive Maintenance of a Fracking Pump with Machine Learning

Disciplines: Data Science and Engineering Analytics

Course Description

Equipment failures result in costly unplanned downtime of operations and can also lead to serious safety and environmental incidents. Therefore, predicting failures in advance and pinpointing the source unlocks significant value. Application of machine learning to real-time measurements and physics simulations provides a strong predictive maintenance framework for avoiding catastrophic failures and reducing costs.

MathWorks is pleased to present an industry-tested, hands-on workshop on Predictive Maintenance using Machine Learning. In this three-hour, instructor led online workshop, participants will tackle an oilfield equipment failure problem. Participants will build data-driven models in MATLAB using time series data and predict faults.
