This paper presents two implementations of condition monitoring of significant information in a typical machine utilized in the pulp and paper industry, a circuit oil lubrication system. The two discussed alternatives confront a traditional centralized monitoring approach against a Web Service based approach. Advantages and disadvantages of one choice over the other are considered. Both solutions make possible condition based and predictive maintenance as opposed to cyclic maintenance (the approach utilized before these improvements came into place in the presented industrial setting). The presented developments led to vital financial and time savings.
