Update of AMS™ Suite Automates Work Notification to Improve Maintenance Productivity and Operational Excellence

Jan 15 2008 Read 861 Times

Emerson Process Management has released the AMS Suite Work Notification capability that uses the predictive intelligence in plant assets to prioritise critical alerts, and automatically generate work orders to enterprise asset management (EAM) systems such as SAP and MAXIMO for instruments and valves, as well as mechanical and process equipment. AMS Suite is Emerson’s family of best-in-class predictive diagnostic software applications.

The Work Notification capability is part of the secure, web-based AMS Suite: Asset Portal™ 3.0. A rules and policy engine in AMS Asset Portal determines which alerts should be routed to the EAM system for work notification. Automated work notification streamlines maintenance procedures and eliminates the need to manually create work orders for critical assets. Once work is created, maintenance personnel can access detailed troubleshooting information directly from the work order, significantly reducing repair time and allowing personnel to focus more on their overall operation. Emerson’s PlantWeb® Services helps customer’s prioritise key assets so work is truly driven by the criticality of operation.

PlantWeb Services engineers optimise a users AMS Suite applications, including prioritisation of assets that will be monitored in AMS Asset Portal, to increase the overall effectiveness of a maintenance programme. ”The ability to automate work processes based on asset priority with predictive diagnostics is a key contributor to increasing
maintenance and operational efficiency,” said Craig Llewellyn, President of the Asset Optimization division, Emerson Process Management. “Reducing the number of work orders that need to be manually created improves work force productivity and advances operational excellence.” Emerson’s Work Notification capability uses the established relationship between Emerson and Mtelligence, an industry leader in maintenance intelligence solutions, to connect AMS Suite to EAM/CMMS systems. The work notification capability uses the Open O&M™ (Operations and Maintenance) Initiative, based on MIMOSA standards, to ensure open connectivity for users. Together with Mtelligence, Emerson can connect the work notification capability to standard interfaces. AMS Asset Portal 3.0 also supports OPC connectivity to allow users to gather information from DeltaV™ systems, other AMS Suite applications, historians, distributed control systems, programmable logic controllers, and other applications. Through OPC connectivity, users gain additional visibility to asset health information throughout the enterprise.
