Overview

If you’re an operations or reliability leader, you need to understand how and when enterprise assets fail, so you can take immediate action to reduce risk. Asset performance management (APM) enhances asset management insights with targeted AI, analytics and automation. APM helps teams minimize unplanned repair work, reduce equipment failure, increase asset availability and extend asset life without unnecessary costs.

Benefits

Monitor assets smarter

Remotely monitor critical assets and operations with AI-powered monitoring at enterprise scale. Aggregate operating state and IT data with process parameters across repositories to provide enterprise-wide visibility into performance and receive fewer, more accurate alerts and greater insights.

Predict asset failure

Use an IoT and AI platform to help predict when asset degradation or failure might occur.
Correlate factors such as historical and real-time asset performance data, maintenance records, inspection reports and environmental data.

Optimize asset health

Transform your approach by driving actions based on the current health of your assets. Monitor factors such as condition, cost, performance and remaining useful life. Define scoring methods, prioritize areas of focus and initiate maintenance activities.

Plan your asset strategy

Optimize asset maintenance and replacement strategies based on asset risk and criticality.  Determine how to better manage inspections and maintenance, optimize repair and operations inventories, and prioritize replacement versus repair decisions.
