Traditional utility operations consist of multiple systems, each configured to measure and monitor singular machines or small groups of equipment. Information and people work in silos, and operator capacity to analyze collected data is limited. Utility operations management and staff need the ability to consolidate and provide a “single pane of glass” to monitor how assets are performing—holistically—across the power plant, generation fleet and transmission and distribution grid.
Asset Performance Management (APM) is a software application that helps to increase reliability and availability of power plants and power transmission and distribution assets while reducing maintenance costs and unplanned downtime. APM connects disparate data sources and uses advanced analytics to turn data into actionable insights while fostering collaboration and knowledge management across the organization.
- Visibility into machine status and issues and all asset-related KPIs including cost, work orders, and history anywhere, anytime
- A wing-to-wing story that brings together real-time data, alarms, events, and other operational data to get a clear picture of asset performance
- Reduction of unplanned downtime by predicting equipment issues before they occur
- Efficient collaboration on issue resolution and automatic capture of best practices
