Think Big, Start Small, Act Fast
Your assets are talking... Are you listening?
Introducing Aquitas Solutions' Connected Maintenance solution powered by ThingWorx. Designed for rapid development and deployment, Connected Maintenance eliminates tech roadblocks and silos of the past with the leading Industrial IoT technology of ThingWorx and IBM's EAM software, Maximo.
The Maximo to ThingWorx integration allows you to monitor your assets in real-time and automate the response processes from the maintenance team.
Enhance Maintenance Operations & Capabilities
Aquitas’ Connected Maintenance solution will enhance your maintenance operations and capabilities while realizing fast Return on Investment (ROI). By leveraging the systems and data you already have in place today like Maximo, SCADA, or a Manufacturing Execution system, Connected Maintenance creates intelligent condition monitoring rules that will transform your maintenance response capabilities.
- Turn raw data into maintenance action
- Detect, report, and act on failures in real-time
- Minimize time-to-resolution
- Achieve intelligent asset optimization
- Improve forensic data investigation after incidents occur
- Reduce or eliminate unplanned downtime
- The identification and elimination of non-value added PM’s
- Elimination of data silos
How Does Connected maintenance Work?
Advanced Condition Monitoring
- Determine what you actually want to monitor – Ask yourself, what assets cost the most when they fail? What assets have high random fail rates? Do you need visibility into the dark data your assets are producing? What does maintenance need to know about each asset?
- What conditions should be monitored? – Are there conditions of your assets that should be monitored in real-time. These may include temperature, vibration, pressure, voltage, RPMs, etc.
Anomaly Management Alert System
- Establish a threshold for your conditions that will trigger an “anomaly” alert. Determine what is considered “outside” of normal conditions?
- Validate whether or not an alert is an actual problem that needs to be addressed by maintenance. Utilize a system of rules using multiple variables (real-time SCADA, EAM, weather, MES, etc.) to create your validation process.
Automated Maintenance Work Flow Response
- Once an alert has been validated, a work request will be generated in Maximo and work flow will dispatch maintenance to respond.
- Determine how you want alerts to be managed by maintenance. From creating Work Orders based on asset priority to sending emails on status changes, the maintenance team will have the information they need to effectively respond to alerts quickly in real-time.
Powering our Connected Maintenance Solution
The ThingWorx platform is a complete, end-to-end technology platform designed for the industrial Internet of Things (IoT). It delivers tools and technologies that empower businesses to rapidly develop and deploy powerful applications and augmented reality (AR) experiences.
Though the focus for Industry 4.0 is primarily in gaining insights and improvements in design/quality/yield/product lifecycle for manufacturing of product, there is growing realization that it is maintenance that can take advantage of these disruptions. That maintenance of the company’s assets is an essential part of leveraging the components of Industry 4.0 to impact one’s organization.
