Abstract


In oil and gas industry, productivity is very important as the industry involves high cost and can be considered as a large-scale industry. Therefore, time and budget should be kept minimal to avoid loss to the oil and gas company. An example of lack of productivity in the industry is there are many complaints in the oil and gas industry that welders do not perform their job on time. Therefore, this project discussed about a system that can be used to monitor these welding stations. This system is important because it can help supervisors track the welding works from afar or anywhere using internet of things (IoT). To achieve that, a system must consist of hardware and software that are capable of connecting to the internet and monitor the welding works. In this project, the hardware chosen were Arduino Uno for data processing, ESP8266 to connect the microcontroller to the internet, voltage sensor to detect the voltage of the welding machine and a website to show the data taken. Other than that, this system was able to warn the welder of overvoltage of the welding machine. Thus, the system solved the problem of welders not performing their job on time. Supervisors were also able to monitor the job of welders to ensure maximum productivity. Based on the testing done on the system, the prototype was able to work as intended. The welding station monitoring system was able to detect welding usage, measure voltage values of welding and send the data to IoT for monitoring.
