What to Expect When Moving to the Cloud

What to Expect When Moving to the Cloud

MaximoWorld 2018 Cloud Summit - 41:28

by Steve Richmond, Projetech

This session will show the benefits of employing a cloud solution for Enterprise Asset Management. Some of the key concepts covered include the pros and cons of a cloud environment, as well as, different deployment possibilities. Cloud computing can provide flexibility, agile “concept to go-live” implementation, and lower capital outlay. There are also the not-so-obvious benefits, such as economies of scale and the professional authority of the software provider. Cloud computing does not come without risk, so discussion will also explore the factors to consider with respect to a cloud EAM solution.

The RELIABILITY Conference Learning Session - 33:50
by Simon Davidoff, Siemens

The new Siemens Cloud for Industry – MindSphere opens up an ecosystem for OEMs, end customers, partners and Siemens. The ecosystem already offers a wide range of applications to increase plant efficiency and productivity, energy management applications, and maintenance and operation applications. MindSphere offers standard cloud connectivity for many Siemens devices such as drives, PLCs, etc. and open, available interfaces (APIs) to application developers. The built-in secure device-cloud communication offers maximum customer data protection. Safety and industrial security services are available for MindSphere applications, as well as for standard Siemens industrial products.

There are a number of compelling use cases that are helping manufacturers reach new levels of productivity and cost savings. Few companies, however, are tapping the real value of the data these systems are already measuring. With Data Analytics services, new transparency into the health of machines and systems is revealed in real-time. Machine failures can be predicted before they occur, and process deviations can be identified and corrected sooner to prevent quality or efficiency drop-off. The result: maintenance planning and service management both improve, and costs are reduced.

A discussion of the above and also how to identify, define and elaborate a use case in the field of reliability and maintenance through a series of logical steps is included.

Construction to Maintenance- A Case Study in Transition of Facilities Management Data

Construction to Maintenance- A Case Study in Transition of Facilities Management Data

IMC-2016 Learning Session - 41:16 
by Dennis Ford, Texas Children's Hospital; Evan Kontos, Drawbase Software; David Connors, Drawbase Software

This session is design to review the process and requirements a healthcare facility owner employed to migrate a newly constructed patient facility thru the entire lifecycle building and management process. The owner of a new 1 million square foot hospital leveraged key program planning process management techniques to ensure that the graphic floorplans, equipment and building infrastructure data captured during the facility design and construction phase from various design and engineering consultants ensured that this new healthcare facility would be Joint Commission Environment of Care (EOC) survey ready on day one. This included data needed to ensure a smooth transition from construction to operations and maintenance. The data was defined during design, standardized during construction, and used during commissioning. This formed the basis of a building information management (BIM) system. This includes integrations with CAFM and EAM solutions including Maximo to ensure a complete integrated management solution to support on-going facility planning and maintenance management requirements.

How to Align Your Location and Asset Data to Provide Efficiencies

How to Align Your Location and Asset Data to Provide Efficiencies

IMC-2016 Focused Forum - 40:55 
by Courtney Blalock, EDI and John Acton, Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department

We all have and use Enterprise Asset Management systems. They are an essential tool in how we maintain our Assets, schedule and plan work for those assets and track our effectiveness and efficiencies in the work place. Are we getting out of them all that we can? When we initially setup our EAM systems did we fully understand the implications of the decisions we made when we setup the Location and Asset hierarchies? Have we gone back to adjust them? Have we gone through the effort of examining ALL of our Location and System hierarchies and how they interact with each other? Many organizations find themselves performing daily maintenance and adjustments on their own EAM systems that are supposed to be helping them. This is often from choices made long ago with limited understanding of capabilities and best practices. Processes have often been put in place that require a significant amount of work to maintain and yet they still don’t provide the promises expected when the system was first implemented. We will discuss best practices around Location hierarchies; how they should be organized, how systems should be utilized and how they interact with Assets. We will further discuss how changes to Location hierarchies can affect you and how to minimize the impact to you. We will discuss the roll of Assets and their structure and how they relate to the Location hierarchy. Finally, we will discuss best practices that can be implemented by users to get them on the path to realizing the efficiencies their EAM system can bring to them.

Simple Failure Reporting: High Quality Reliability Data is Not Hard to Get

Simple Failure Reporting: High Quality Reliability Data is Not Hard to Get

IMC-2016 Reliability Engineering for Maintenance - 39:54 
by Rick Crory, Crory & Associates, Inc. and Samuel Paske, Metropolitan Council Environmental Services

Despite impressive gains increasing plant reliability in most industries, organizations still struggle with the raw material of reliability improvement - failure data. This paper uncovers two linked reasons: Poorly understood benefits and excessively high costs. The benefits of collecting and acting on good reliability information are not clearly understood. Similarly, the right level of information has not been established. Reliability data can be so detailed that it requires significant effort to create and manage, or it is so high level that it offers little actionable insight. There seems to be no middle ground of both actionable insight and reasonable effort.

Until now. Starting with clearly identified benefits, businesses can clearly make the case to staff and management for the extra effort good failure data requires. Businesses are concerned with 3 things related to physical assets: performance, risk and cost. Good failure data can be used to maximize performance, manage risk and control costs by optimizing maintenance activities and identifying assets for capital investment. In both cases, spending is used to sustain plant profitability rather than the other way around.

Currently most organizations chose to align collection of failure data to each asset class/type. This results in tens if not hundreds of failure classes/codes when in truth assets typically fail for one of three reasons; electrically, mechanically or structurally. Additionally, best in class CMMSs tend to tie failure data to the asset (e.g. problem, cause, remedy) ignoring component which is key to determining the actual failure mode for reliability analysis. In order to resolve this gap organizations incorporate components into the failure data further ballooning the amount of data needing to be created and thus maintained. The end result with so many selections to chose from maintenance workers in the field are overwhelmed and in many cases pick what ever values come up first thus incorrect data is collected. This vast amount of data impacts mobile applications as well when trying to download thousands if not tens of thousands of codes onto a handheld device. Bottom line to the organization is high cost due to vast amounts of data creation/maintenance, incorrect/inaccurate data to engineers and valuable time lost in getting this data downloaded for use in the field.
