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.
