Enterprise Asset Management is an integrated plant operation solution that enables companies to operate plants more smoothly by keeping equipment running at the lowest cost. Integrating different software with enterprise asset management software is a critical step that companies need to take in order to get a handle on expenses, and to be able to execute better management on an ongoing basis.

Lean Automation’s Enterprise Asset Management Integration solution enables communication between EAM/CMMS systems and provides a mechanism for Real time Condition Based Monitoring. We provide computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) and other maintenance management solutions as part of our Enterprise Integration offering, all to help increase your uptime and reduce your maintenance costs while decrease longevity of equipment. This system could help you to reduce your total cost of ownership. Our platform-independent approach ensures that we deliver the best solution for your operations, without bias for any particular technology.

Benefits

  • Shift from reactive to proactive maintenance through CBM.
  • Workload reduction on current workforce resulting in greater productivity, less turnover, cost savings and co-worker development.
  • Reduced need for regulatory inspection
  • Reduced Workforce: Eliminates the need for plant technicians to manually collect meter readings and then manually enter the results into the CMMS / EAM systems
  • Intelligent Inventory Management
  • Improved reliability would uncover additional capacity as redundant standby equipment could be put to use in production.
  • Implementation of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) strategies which involves On-Condition and Complete maintenance within Schedule, Locating failures and One Time Change in System.
  • Coherent Real-time Data collection
  • Comprehensive maintenance database creation, including significant Alarms & Events in their particular order and time.
  • Improved overall skill level and technical knowledge
  • Enables maintenance supervisor or manager to optimize planning with better visibility into actual equipment condition

Without the proper maintenance and support, your systems can become unreliable — leading to unscheduled downtime, product waste and a decrease in profitability. To help you reduce these risks, Lean Automation provides a range of factory maintenance planning services and plant maintenance support as part of our sustaining services offering. We’ll work with you to develop a custom solution that meets your specific needs for stability, performance and functionality across an ever-increasing range of legacy, hosted and proprietary systems.

Today Manufacturers need to have a deep understanding of their business, of the Systems and packaged solutions in play, and agile processes, and of the industry best practices. Support requirements at this level are as much about increasing productivity as they are about maintaining/improving the quality of services.

Lean takes a comprehensive approach to provide maintenance process solutions from staffing support to design-for-ease maintenance solutions (or processes); with a focus on eliminating unplanned outages. We work with you to fully understand your maintenance requirements and develop a holistic proactive plan for supporting your systems. Our process entails detail design engineering, sub-system process segregation, commissioning, training plans, and preventive maintenance processes for ease of maintenance during outages, increased uptime, and lower cost. Our end goal is to ensure a cost effective maintainable and operable process or facility for operations to manage. Our diverse industry experience allows sharing of maintenance process best practices with all our customers.

Lean Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence solution translates manufacturing data from the plant-floor into actionable intelligence for decision makers at the enterprise and business level.

Our Manufacturing Intelligence suite of solutions enable users to overcome business challenges, resulting in increased profitability, streamlined business efficiency and a strengthened loyalty to customers and vendors.

Lean EMI allows you to collect manufacturing-related data from across your plant, transfer it to your business systems and use it to create reports, analyses and visual summaries. Manufacturing Intelligence strategies leverage a suite of reporting and analysis tools, interfaces and dashboards designed to deliver contextual, localized, role-based information to help you improve your process. When given new structure or context, these data allow users to easily find the information they need, regardless of its source. This real knowledge drives business results across the enterprise. And our Technologies will help you to make it happen.

Lean EMI performs five core functions: aggregation, contextualization, analysis, visualization and action. For this purpose, our EMI solutions correlate data from a variety of sources; data regarding quality, manufacturing, and inventory. So you can analyze it and make timely decisions. By delivering the right information to the right people at the right time, our solutions enable real-time decision making on the shop floor while supporting long-term continuous improvement initiatives.

For large manufacturing operations with multiple plants even in different locations, Lean EMI solution addresses needs from planning to production, quality assurance, maintenance, asset and inventory management.
