The building systems division of a Fortune 500 manufacturer, which provides equipment and services for optimizing building energy expenditures, was facing a significant challenge. The division was conducting chiller maintenance reactively, leading to business disruptions, downtimes, and costly emergency repairs. This reactive approach was negatively impacting customer satisfaction. The manufacturer needed a solution that could rapidly integrate all relevant equipment and facility data sources. The goal was to reduce downtime and costly, unscheduled maintenance for its commercial Heating, Venting & Cooling (HVAC) chiller systems.
Fortune 500 Manufacturing
About The Customer
The customer in this case study is the building systems division of a Fortune 500 manufacturer. This division provides equipment and services that optimize building energy expenditures, ensuring comfort for customers. The company is a global equipment manufacturer and services company with 100,000 employees and $30 billion in revenue. The company's primary objective was to load and cluster sensor data for use in a predictive model, train a machine learning model to predict chiller failure, and demonstrate the speed of development and deployment by completing the project in less than a week.
To address these challenges, the manufacturer deployed C3 AI Reliability for 165 of its chillers. The customer chose C3 AI due to its proven ability to rapidly integrate sensor data, normalize and cluster disparate readings, and run machine learning algorithms to identify deteriorating conditions before failures occur. In just 4 days, C3 AI and the customer loaded, normalized, and mapped 3 years of sensor data for all 165 chillers. They created custom analytics on these data and configured a machine learning algorithm to predict chiller failure events. C3 AI Reliability exceeded the identified accuracy and precision targets.

Predictive Maintenance for Industrial Chillers
For global leaders in the industrial chiller manufacturing, reliability of the entire production process is of the utmost importance. Chillers are refrigeration systems that produce ice water to provide cooling for a process or industrial application. One of those leaders sought a way to respond to asset performance issues, even before they occur. The intelligence to guarantee maximum reliability of cooling devices is embedded (pre-alarming). A pre-alarming phase means that the cooling device still works, but symptoms may appear, telling manufacturers that a failure is likely to occur in the near future. Chillers who are not internet connected at that moment, provide little insight in this pre-alarming phase.
