Asset maintenance visibility
Provides a user experience that incorporates the concept of “cards”, which represent individual assets. It allows maintenance managers to easily access information to determine which assets are being over-, under- or well-maintained and uses this prescriptive analysis to optimize maintenance practices and resources. The user experience supports analysis and reporting on all assets, classes of assets, or filters for properties common to a set of assets classes.
Drivers and risk factors
At the most granular level, maintenance personnel gain an understanding of individual drivers and factors that affect asset performance, as well as detailed attributes of the asset, predicted time to failure, and maintenance logs. This information provides as complete a context as possible for assessing past, present, and future asset performance that can be used to recommend or prescribe practices or procedures to improve maintenance strategies.
Compare asset performance
To further explore why certain assets may be performing better or worse than others, a maintenance manager can chronologically compare drivers and risk factors such as hours of operation, failure frequency, AND cycles for a specific asset. This level of detail can help a manager visually correlate factors that are positively and negatively influencing asset performance in context of historical failure data and maintenance and replacement activities.
Machine learning & advanced analytics
Apply machine learning, using principles of math, science, and engineering to identify correlations between maintenance data and operating data along with any other data that may contain clues about equipment usage and degradation. In some instances, analysis may indicate current asset maintenance schedules and practices are ideal and no changes need be made. For others, analysis will prescribe maintenance be preponed to avoid asset failure or postponed to avoid unnecessary maintenance.
