About the Project Green Monitor

Programme Area Green Industry Innovation Innovation Norway

The Centralized Condition-Based Maintenance and Manufacturing Support System Project (Green Monitor) sets as its primary objective the development of innovative tool which to support the greening of manufacturing enterprises production processes by optimizing their maintenance activities. As intended result, the enterprises are expected to reduce their energy, oil and lubricants consumption. Upon project completion, the system will be available both for onsite implementation (On Premises) and in a cloud-supported version (SaaS). The project will be implemented by the value-added partnership among ICB, Terotech and NTNU. The unique combination of three areas of expertise, i.e. software development (ICB), maintenance services to large enterprises (Terotech), and scientific competence (NTNU), will lead to highly specific project results. Thus, manufacturing enterprises will not only be empowered with new software capabilities but will also benefit from the specialized know-how of project partners.

Intended project results include:

  • Scientific analysis on existing maintenance methodologies and available solutions, and developing an innovative maintenance concept
  • Development of software system that will incorporate the latest technology trends and solutions, including the possibility to run in the cloud and on mobile devices
  • Testing and verification of the product, the approach efficiency, and the green effect
