Information is everywhere in today’s world. It is the way individuals and companies alike make decisions. Insurance companies have a device you can plug into your car to gather information to tell them about your driving habits. They gather the information about you to make a rate determination on what they should charge you for your premium. Facebook, Twitter, the internet in general gives you so much social information, breaking news, etc. all this information is readily accessible and even alerts you when it happens. The “internet of things” or IOT is very active - Why should maintenance and reliability be any different?
