iAPM’s automated integrated operations management ensures system wide availability and utilization, avoiding sub-optimal operation from:
Missed events due to numerous and disparate data sources, large volumes of data, slowly evolving faults, alarm overload and human error.
Poorly performing controllers or ineffective equipment operation.
Incorrect process parameters used by a control room technician or metallurgist for the current process conditions.
Trends only becoming evident by correlating readings & time delays or after examination by ‘experts’.
iAPM within integrated Remote Operations Centres:
Automatically assesses the entire logistics process.
Analyses performance to standards for safety critical elements and equipment.
Alerts operators (control room technicians) of asset performance issues (equipment, process, control and infrastructure).
Recommends corrective actions before issues impact production, availability and safety.
Continuous expert advice on asset performance twenty four hours a day.
Information for operators to direct on-field teams and the maintenance crew to repair instrumentation or equipment issues.
Fact based decision making supporting operational discipline.
A rapid summary of asset condition which can be used as a shift handover tool.
Standardized and consistent causes which can be used within downtime reporting system (if downtime occurs).
iAPM removes error resulting from manual assessment, providing consistent and best practice operational responses and fact based decision making regardless of personnel, with visibility for operations, maintenance and asset management teams.
