Bentley Systems is an approved Reliability Partner
The Bentley Advantage
Bentley uniquely enables a reliability centered approach earlier in the lifecycle to ensure operational readiness and optimal performance. Once in operation, detect the onset of failure early so you can make timely and informed maintenance decisions before equipment fails. AssetWise APM (formerly Ivara EXP) provides a unique combination of rigor, speed, and risk-sensitivity to develop a cohesive reliability strategy across an entire equipment base. The asset health dashboard drives a proactive daily process. It changes the way operations and maintenance work together to care for production assets. It becomes the ‘control room’ or pulse of the operation as it relates to asset health, recommending what actions to take and when to prevent asset failure.
Bentley’s approach to visual operations reduces the gap between the engineer’s mental model of the plant, its performance and its representation in IT systems. By leveraging Bentley’s industry leading asset performance management capabilities, its federated approach to information management combined with its 30 year investment in design and engineering technologies, Bentley is able to link 2D and representations of a unit/plant/site with data from other operational systems to support common asset performance and integrity management process workflows.
Bentley APM Methodology
An effective Asset Performance Management (APM) process involves the development and implementation of reliability programs for operational assets coupled with the application of ongoing performance monitoring and improvement to drive program optimization over time. Successful and sustainable implementation of the APM process is dependent on building a program that is aligned with key business objectives and developing the organization in a manner that ensures clear accountability for asset performance activities. Bentley’s APM Methodology is renowned for being:
- Holistic and complete asset performance management solution, aligned to PAS 55 and ISO 55000
- Flexible and adaptable (fits to every environment, leveraging any improvements made prior to partnering with Bentley, and has multiple entry points, depending on your needs and current abilities in APM)
