Data management, islands of data
To manage the performance and reliability of your production equipment effectively, you need data. Effectively and efficiently managing data can mean the difference between success and failure in asset care. Many companies have collected equipment condition readings for years, but have lacked the tools to manage and analyze the data properly. The challenge has been the islands of data collected from various sources, including:
- Predictive maintenance technologies like vibration and oil analyses, temperature, infrared thermography
- Data historians, SCADA systems, specialized tools that analyze process controls and sensor data
- Paper checksheets from operator rounds and maintenance inspections piling up on desks
- RCM findings sitting in binders
These tools produce masses of data and reports containing merely historical information, diminished in value if the data is not acted on in a timely manner to trigger the right work at the right time. The challenge is that it is difficult to analyze data from multiple sources, correlate and then act on this data in a timely and effective manner. Engineers manually review this data to determine if any action needs to be taken.
EXP Enterprise automates the processing of all condition data from all sources. EXP Enterprise transforms data into real-time intelligence so you can make fast and accurate business decisions.
