SKF @ptitude Decision Support system cuts analysis time by 70%
A plant under construction in Spain needed an integrated equipment reliability system that would feed on-line and off-line condition monitoring parameters into a decision support system for improved system reliability and plant availability.
The SKF solution
SKF installed the SKF @ptitude Decision Support system on the plant’s critical and important equipment, where it could capture predictive maintenance and operator driven reliability data, critical machinery protection system data, process data and oil analysis data. SKF also integrated SKF @ptitude Decision Support with the plant’s computerized maintenance management system for simple work order notification creation.
SKF @ptitude Decision Support helped the company:
- Reduce data analysis time by 70%
- Reduce operating costs while maintaining equipment reliability
- Capture operation and maintenance knowledge, and provide training for new employees
