ENTERPRISE ASSET MANAGEMENT

Comprehensive Management of all Assets in the Power System over entire Asset Lifecycles (stand-alone EAM system or integrated with ERP/EAM systems such as SAP, Maximo etc.).

KEY FACTS AND FEATURES

of Enterprise Asset Management

Powerful Planning

Description:

The Planning module group allows you to easily create operative plans, assign actions to plans, and run reports about planning activities.

Major benefits:

Cost savings gained by accurate planning of maintenance and/or commissioning actions; by the simplified use of the planning wizard; by effective management of action responses (new actions created automatically by the system based off configurable logic); and the efficiency of plan optimization.

Work Ordering and Scheduling

Description:

The Work Ordering module group allows you to create work packages by assigning actions to internal or external work orders, to manage action responses, and run reports about work ordering.

Major benefits:

Cost savings gained by effective work scheduling and control (optional comparison between nominal & actual use of resources).

Technical Documentation

Description:

Technical Documentation now available online.

Major benefits:

Always make sure that you have the most recent user documentation. Soon you will also be able to access an online knowledgebase with “How To” videos and FAQs.

Location Change Management

Description:

Track and document any change to the location of an asset, such as installation, replacement, or retirement to name a few.

Major benefits:

Configurable action types allow you to record any applicable reason for changing locations, while at the same time changing the status and automatically reassigning any assigned (linked) assets at the same time.

Malfunction and Repair Management

Description:

Track and document all malfunctions and repairs to each asset. Create separately or add as a conditional task to any maintenance or inspection action.

Major benefits:

Track malfunctions and repairs to later be used for trending and analytics. Identify candidate assets for early replacement.

Asset Discard Management

Description:

Track and document assets that have been removed from the system but not deleted from the Database.

Major benefits:

For any asset that has been removed from the system, maintain the historical record for these assets and allow the asset to be reinstated.

Resource Requirement Management

Description:

For any action template, track all estimated resources, labor and nonlabor, needed to complete the work.

Major benefits:

The ability to compare estimated vs actual costs for your maintenance activities as well as more accurate OPEX and CAPEX optimization.

TRANSFORM YOUR BUSINESS

CURRENT SOLUTION: is lacking sufficient relational Data Models for Power System Assets.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS enhances any existing EAM (for e.g. SAP, MAXIMO, etc.) by bridging the gap with additional functionality and enhanced data models (for e.g. management for windings on transformers, configurations on IEDs, and linear Assets like overhead lines and power cables).

CURRENT SOLUTION: does not provide analytical optimization of the maintenance plan.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS uses advanced analytics to suggest improvements to your maintenance plan, such as removing maintenance actions for assets scheduled for replacement and replacing major maintenance actions with minor actions for assets in excellent health.

CURRENT SOLUTION: schedules maintenance based solely on outdated time-based maintenance cycles.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS provides you with the ability to define maintenance cycles based on any combination of desired values, such as time, condition, risk value, or RCM Methodology.

CURRENT SOLUTION: for asset management is not integrated with advanced analytics.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS can provide an EAM that is fully integrated with IPS advanced analytics.

CURRENT SOLUTION: does not define maintenance and commissioning concepts with advanced data models.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS provides you with the ability to define complex maintenance and commissioning concepts with industry specific task types such as malfunction management, primary tests, and trip control circuits, to name a few.

CURRENT SOLUTION: cannot define resource requirements for future planning.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS allows you to define both labor and nonlabor resources for each maintenance and commissioning concept, allowing you to rollup resource requirements by action, work order, or plan.
