Incomplete equipment data
Drawings, equipment-history, certificates and manuals are often not up to date, not reliable or even not available. Do you recorgnise this? We experience this often enough. We can support you with completing and structuring your technical data. At the same time we can define the structure and procedures for future management of documents and technical data.

Aging of the current Maintenance Management Information Systems
Nearly all organizations already have some type of maintenance management system. However, the use and the configuration has not been changed since the original implementation of the system, although the way of working and the size of the organization may have changed substantially. The actual value of having such a maintenance management system is low. Do you recognise this? Do you not experience any substantial added value of the maintenance management information system? We can support you of increasing the effectiveness and use of your current system, or even help you replacing the current system with a new system. Our vast experience in selecting, configuring and implementing information systems leads to short implementation leadtimes.
New and more information is increasing and becoming available faster and faster due to new technologies. The sheer volume of the information requires a different set-up and structure of your data management and data storage in order to effectively analyse the data. We can support you with effectively using Big Data and to explore how Big Data can support you most effectively.
The developments in mobile technology take place on a daily basis. We use mobile technology more and more. Much of these solutions can be applied in the area of maintaining assets, therefore making

to use mobile solutions and select and implement mobile solutions in your company in such a way that it will have the maximum added value.

Are you getting the right information to properly make a decision on these matters ? We can support you in obtaining the right information and gaining insights in the consequences on the choices to be made.

We support organization by training and consultancy to increase focus, knowledge and competences so your organization can start initiating continuous improvement.
New information technologies
The capabilities for (the integration of) equipment condition monitoring have increased substantially over the last couple of years whilst the costs have dropped. Real-time monitoring of the equipment condition unleashes new opportunities for more, faster and more in-depth maintenance analyses. However, this will often require a new set-up of your data management, way of working and management to effectively realize the opportunities. We would like to explore how these developments could be of value for your organization.
