Digitisation of wind asset management compromises valuation of human ingenuity: ARMSA
Organisations tend to use automation, AI instead of improving their employees’ skills.
The wind industry’s drive towards digitising asset management compromises improvement of human performance, according to a new industry insight report by ARMSA Academy.
The Great Leap Forward report, which presents interviews with experts across the wind industry, says that: “In an industry obsessed with asset performance and marginal gains, companies invest too little in human skills that help projects run optimally, or they instead invest in training methods that are ineffective.”
Currently, organisations turn to utilising artificial intelligence and automation when seeking ways to increase profit margins, as opposed to improving the skill sets of individuals within their teams.
“Optimised human performance and decision-making can, if nurtured, act as a catalyst for increased availability, less turbine downtime, safer colleagues and fewer organisational silos,” the report proposed.
The report is released as power sector consultancy group ARMSA introduces the ARMSA Academy venture, a digital performance support platform that offers wind professionals with safety-led performance support.
