Better asset management software means less maintenance costs and more automation

To achieve "factory of the future” status, manufacturing companies need to fully embrace Industry 4.0 opportunities. But when they’re dealing with complex assets on different lifecycles, disparate data that is difficult to connect and constant waves of cutting-edge technologies they need to integrate, the decision-making process can be challenging. That’s where a good asset management system for manufacturing industry comes into play.

For decades, IBM® Maximo® Application Suite has helped industries such as consumer products and automotive to manage assets and maintenance activities for production lines through intelligent plant asset management and increased overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). It delivers AI and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for enterprise asset management (EAM), asset performance management (APM) and reliability centered maintenance (RCM). Maximo integrates with business management systems such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution systems (MES) to help you connect your maintenance, inspections and reliability teams while boosting first-time fix rates. In this short demo, see how Maximo can help continuously detect and correct defects.
