Can AI help you find the right part? Here’s everything you need to know
See how you can identify an asset part - no matter what condition it's in - in 30 seconds simply by snapping a photo
An asset management solution helps to get the most out of your operations. One of the benefits to a centralized system is the power to know how those assets are performing and which need repair or maintenance. Yet given the sheer volume of assets, not to mention their increasing complexity, it isn’t easy for the technician in charge to always know the right solution or the part required.
Now imagine if you could bring your asset management solution to the next level. What if you could offer your maintenance teams the ability to identify any given part – or asset – in just a few seconds.
Partium and IBM have collaborated to do just that with IBM Maximo Parts Identifier. It’s an AI-enabled part search technology that’s seamlessly integrated into IBM Maximo Mobile. The result: users get blazing fast and reliable search experience for industrial spare parts.
Identify spare parts within 30 seconds through your mobile device camera
Today’s mobile technicians require immediate access to their work orders, reference manuals, the bill of materials and individual part information.
Simultaneously, maintenance organizations are struggling with paper manuals, legacy systems, and homegrown catalogs. It’s all happening while everyone is struggling to maximize asset uptimes, manage costs, keep inventory stocks down and train the next generation of workers.
