Simpson Associates Predictive Forecasting for Boiler Maintenance Proof of Concept

Enabling social housing organisations to effectively forecast boiler maintenance requirements.

What is the Simpson Associates Predictive Forecasting for Boiler Maintenance Proof of Concept?

Social Housing organisations need to react quickly and effectively to boiler maintenance requirements. Many have the data available that could be used to predict how many reactive maintenance requests to expect through the year and even predict which type of boilers in certain types of properties are most likely to fail within a given time window. 

Unplanned, reactive maintenance can create a number of challenges, including difficulty with resourcing or more complex repairs.  

Implementing our Predictive Forecasting for Boiler Maintenance Proof of Concept (PoC) can help social housing organisations to start to understand how they can use the data already available to enhance their service delivery and ultimately improve customer satisfaction.  

Using data science approaches and machine learning algorithms, these can be used to provide an ‘early warning sign’ at individual boiler level, turning unforeseen, reactive maintenance into known and planned maintenance.
