Maintenance in the Engineering Base Plant Solution
Engineering Base’s maintenance solution provides maintenance managers, management and technicians with a comprehensive package of fault-free and time-saving features.
When the devices and machines are first switched on in a plant, the use of conventional engineering systems usually ends. Finally, the planning is completed, and the task is done. But there is always the need to make changes during operation – and unfortunately, there are often some accompanying problems as well.
The central question is: how do the technicians responsible get to the latest state of the documentation with all relevant data? Using expensive CAx tools is not a solution because they make demands on the hardware that do not fit standard maintenance practice. In addition, department and operations managers need not only the current documentation but also the maintenance plan of the plant.
Mobility is the key
The Engineering Base (EB) maintenance package focuses on an important requirement for effective maintenance: data mobility. Service employees have flexible access to all current and relevant plant data always, especially in spontaneous emergencies, without having long searches through folders.
From the maintenance plan to the as-built documentation
With a web-based application, the service becomes even more flexible. For this,has developed the Maintenance app. EB is the bridge between the app and SAP PM (Plant Maintenance), but also other systems for planning management.
Always up to date
Due to the Cloud technology underlying the maintenance solutions, service professionals always access up-to-date plant data and documents.
Predictive maintenance is an integral part of Industry 4.0’s repertoire. With EB’s unique configuration capability for PdM, predictive maintenance is not clairvoyance, but the highly efficient optimization of a future-proof technology.
EB offers the highest level of consistency, from P&ID to worksheet, from process design to automation – with all the advantages for technicians and management:
1) Linkage of maintenance planning and engineering data
2) Online access to currently released documentation always
3) The immediate reaction in case of malfunctions
4) No CAx program knowledge required
5) Change information goes directly to the engineering without any intervention in the original
6) Full control by the design department
7) Overview of maintenance tasks for management always
8) Future-proof: support option for state-of-the-art technologies such as predictive maintenance
