It is critical to have a 360° view of how an asset performs, or what we call a ‘business understanding’ of the asset management strategy, which is to really look beyond just repairs and assess the asset from the perspective of criticality for operational continuity and plant productivity.

With the progress in the world of IIOT, several process industries have invested into condition monitoring systems, but most of them are quite challenged on how to leverage the data to improve operations and maintenance. With multiple systems supplied by different vendors, most maintenance managers struggle – simply because they do not have a dashboard to monitor all their assets, neither do they have the internal resources to analyze the data and translate them into usable maintenance inputs.

Our approach is to provide a managed solution, leveraging well-established condition monitoring platforms, and provisioning resources required to perform the analysis of the data and deliver reports. We also have the ability to integrate the condition monitoring system to an EAM system such as IBM Maximo, which can enable maintenance teams to run a fully integrated program.

Managed Connected maintenance- what does it mean to you?

  • Real-time maintenance knowledge across stakeholders and regions
  • Increase uptime and plant reliability
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • A constantly learning and improving system
  • Efficient work process for issuing work orders into the EAM or CMMS
  • Easier and quicker – RCA (Root Cause Analysis)
  • Reduced Mean Time to Repair (MTTR)

With a well-established and integrated connected maintenance solution, most common concerns can be addressed, such as:

  • Can an asset fail, what is the likelihood of that happening?
  • What is the impact of asset failure?
  • What are the types of failures we should plan for?
  • How early can you detect a potential issue?
  • What could be the time taken to resolve a failure?
  • How good is the early warning system?
  • What preventive steps can be taken to avoid failures?
