Real time sensor data is used often to monitor and control industrial applications. Such data is used to detect unexpected events and to take timely action to prevent industrial accidents or breakdowns. We introduce the concept of proactive sensing enterprises. The EU ProaSense project explores the use of real time sensor data and historical data to detect the likelihood of undesired events and to take proactive action to avoid undesired events and improve the resilience of the business. In

We describe the benefits of connecting the business processes to sensor data and how modelling could contribute to reducing maintenance costs, improving proactive decision making and resilience in industry. An example from the manufacturing industry will be described.
