10 reasons to do asset monitoring
Looking for reliability and predictability? Maintenance software is a specifically developed software for equipment and asset management, based on the automation and centralization of industrial data to support analysis and decision-making.
In this text we will address 10 reasons to invest in a management system of excellence, capable of supporting and optimizing your maintenance plan and asset reliability. Check it out!
Why invest in maintenance software?
1- Decreased risk of accidents with professionals
One of the main advantages of the automation of the maintenance processes is the safety of employees, removed from the exposure to the risks of accidents in the field.
The system is set up to perform activities that used to need to be done in person, using paper and clipboards.
In other words, the technicians’ proximity to the functioning equipment is almost null, and inspections can be carried out with the help of a cell phone, for example.
2 – Asset reliability and predictability
Assets are the key of any operation and being able to predict any failure or downtime in production should increasingly be the priority of operations.
Thus, the search for remote data collection and data centralization is one of the greatest benefits when investing in maintenance software, because it centralizes all the information from the monitored assets, allowing a more objective follow-up regarding the failure history, performance, among others.
3 – Increased equipment lifetime with predictability
Among the main and most important reasons for the investment is the reliability and assertiveness of the collections performed remotely from the assets.
After all, these two techniques support performance and assist in tracking anomalies and failure modes in the early stages.
4 – Saving time and resources
The use of this type of system provides a better definition of maintenance priorities, as well as the automation of tasks previously performed manually, such as planning, monitoring, and machine data analysis.
In addition, there are also savings on spare parts by keeping stock.
5 – Facilitates preventive and predictive maintenance
A management software allows you to act in an anticipated and planned way to the failure modes presented in a machine or equipment, making the use of technologies integrated to the system more efficient.
Wireless sensors, for example, when integrated with maintenance software, collect and send the data to the cloud, making available on your dashboard, asset condition reports and criticality alert configuration, before failure occurs.
6 – Improves decision making
From the collected information, the data analysis becomes more assertive and efficient, because they were monitored online and remotely according to the functioning of the asset.
KPIs, for example, are performance indicators in graphical form, with monthly data committed to results that serve to point out what is going well and what must be improved in the measured activity.
This process, besides facilitating the maintenance technician’s routine, provides more planning alternatives and aids in decision making.
7 – Decreases the margin of error with reliability
The substitution of the manual process reduces the chances of human error when performing an analysis, making the process more assertive and reliable in terms of reports and collection of the equipment’s condition.
The software becomes, in this case, the maintenance manager’s best friend, performing analysis remotely and based on reliability.
8 – H/H Optimization
The automation of the processes allows the technicians’ working time to be improved and channeled into other maintenance tasks that would take about 8 hours to perform.
Thus, there is an optimization of the employees’ work time on the factory floor, favoring their productivity and improvement with other functionalities of the software itself.
9 – Procedures documentation
Another important point is that all the information is automatically saved and documented in the system, making it easy to consult about previous maintenance in digital files and making the processes more practical, as well as the flow of activities.
10 – Strengthens digital transformation
The use of software in maintenance management and predictability, is above all, to be up to date in the aspect of competitiveness and efficiency of operations.
The implementation of this type of tool is a reality in several industrial sectors that seek to be attuned to the concepts and strategies of Industry 4.0.
Dynamox Maintenance Software
Dynamox has its own asset management system, created and developed by the R&D department, which serves several industrial sectors in monitoring the condition of assets, focusing on predictability and reliability.
There are several relevant functionalities for asset maintenance management, with decision support dashboards and compact information from points monitored by the Dynaloggers.
In addition, a data history presented in graphical format, orbital charts, spectral analysis, spot updating based on specific metrics with continuous alerts, and asset tree with the complete view of the plants.
Recently added, DynaPredict now has frequency markers previously registered in the asset center, aiming to increase the potential for identifying the evolution of machinery failures. Read more about what’s new in the platform here.
