    Utilizing Your CMMS To Drive Infrared PdM Activities

    Infraspection Institute Utilizing your CMMS to Drive Infrared PdM ActivitiesGenesisSolutions had an opportunity to lead a presentation at IR INFO 2017 to discuss and demonstrate several steps necessary to set up a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to monitor and drive infrared Predictive Maintenance, or PdM, activities. The presentation led a review of the steps involved, including:

    • How to identify assets in scope for thermography inspections
    • How to capture asset information and build assets within the CMMS application
    • How to develop asset and location hierarchy to facilitate route creation and execution
    • How to setup condition monitoring information for assets included in infrared inspections to trigger follow-up work based on inspection results
    • How to develop metrics to measure performance / issue frequency based on inspection findings and follow-up items
    • How to develop routes and route schedules in a CMMS application
    • How to execute routes creating / triggering follow-up work orders as needed
    • How to analyze data and monitor KPI data on defined intervals
    • How to review and update frequencies and actions based on results and metrics data

    Lastly, we highlighted aspects of the integration that downloads the infrared readings to the CMMS.

    Fundamental Data Considerations: Enabling Effective Planning & Scheduling

    Enabling Effective Planning & Scheduling: Fundamental Data Considerations for your Organization and CMMS

    GenesisSolutions had an opportunity to lead a presentation at the Pacific Northwest Maximo User Group (PANMU) in late 2016 on the Fundamental Data Considerations organizations must understand and implement in order to enable their CMMS (IBM Maximo, Infor EAM, et al) to allow for Effective Planning & Scheduling.


    ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’

     Is one of your EAM goals to better Plan & Schedule work? That is common. The first questions you need to ask yourself is: Do we have accurate work history on our assets? Do we know what activities have taken place? Do we have a PM program that positively or negatively affects the accuracy and value of this work? This presentation discusses key fundamental and historical data considerations (including: crafts, inventory, schedules, tools, and third parties) that need to be established to set your organization up for success when undertaking a planning and scheduling initiative. It may just be possible to escape your past P&S mistakes if you put your CMMS work history to work!

    Note: Recorded Session Available Here

    Quinton GoForth will be leading a keynote address on “IBM Maximo Asset Management for Reliability Leaders“. Although the examples will be demonstrated in Maximo, the methodology is geared for all leading CMMS, including Infor EAM, Oracle eAM, and SAP PM. Quinton will be discussing subject matter focused on the following topics:
    The engine behind a leading-edge maintenance and asset management program is the CMMS.  Although IBM Maximo Asset Management functionality has been enhanced with each new version, there are still a number of external analyses required to optimize the system’s use, such as FMEA.  The key to optimizing your program is linking the output data from each analysis to the proper Maximo field.

    Managing risk for achieving operational excellence is both challenging and essential. This webinar provides an overview of how our new service offering, Safeguard Robustness for Operational Excellence, helps organizations manage this risk.

    Our Asset Performance Optimization team has decades of real-life field experience supporting more than 1,000 global customers in diverse industry sectors. As reliability practitioners, we recognize that traditional maintenance metrics tell only half the story. Given the complex operating environment and integrated supply chains in which we operate, Safeguard Robustness will positively impact right first-time quality, end-to-end cycle time, operator care, employee morale, OEE and schedule adherence.

    Our Safeguard Robustness for Operational Excellence service provides organizations with the ability to focus efforts on critical asset performance optimization. We look at the operating context with a 360-degree view, beginning with the core of operation, followed by the supporting equipment, and finally the surrounding operating envelope. We utilize our LEADER™ PHA software, which enables organizations to apply a standard tool for quantifying risk and evaluating safeguard robustness.
