Downtime is a drag; unplanned downtime is a double drag as output suffers while expenses skyrocket. With the tools to properly schedule and execute maintenance intervals, you can stay ahead of interruptions that do damage to your production numbers. FactoryTalk® MaintenanceSuite gives you the key elements to manage the most prone areas of your operation. Predict issues before they occur on key assets and network devices using software that can also enhance security. Helpful collaborative tools, integrating seamlessly with critical data sources, make it easier for plant personnel to see, use and share the same information while they work together on solutions – whether they are shoulder-to-shoulder peering into a control cabinet or across the plant floor.
If unplanned downtime is bad, what about unintended downtime? A software version update inadvertently implemented, for example. Or a “harmless” fix in one area of your line that triggers risk in other work cells. Think how easy it would be to deal with these stoppage occurrences if you only knew who did what to trigger the alarm. With FactoryTalk AssetCentre, you can secure access to your most important systems, closely tracking user actions such as calibration schedules and certificates, and even firmware versions. Gain an added layer of confidence knowing that updates are now better planned, with few opportunities for human error.
