Stadium transitions to data driven operation: from preventive maintenance to data-driven maintenance

Amsterdam, 16 February 2017 - BAM Bouw en Techniek and Honeywell will become strategic innovation partners of the Amsterdam ArenA for all technology. Part of the agreement forms the installation of a new building management system for the management of the technical systems in the stadium. Assisted by sensors, the building management system collects data from the connected equipment, which is analysed by BAM and Honeywell. Based on data analysis, failures are detected early so that maintenance can be carried out before any inconvenience arises. The systems of BAM Bouw en Techniek and Honeywell make the Amsterdam ArenA a ‘flagship’ in the field of ‘data driven operation’, whereby preventive regular maintenance makes room for predictable, data-driven maintenance.
