OpenText helps you address these requirements with Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions for operations, maintenance & inspection. These solutions establish end-to-end processes – from phasing-in a piece of equipment right through to the end of its operational life. Document management, Web-based collaboration and business process management help address preventive maintenance work – driven by legal regulations, environmental protection requirements, manufacturer recommendations, or for reasons of quality assurance – as well as corrective maintenance carried out to restore a defective item.
Preventive maintenance can be the result of inspections conducted to check the condition and status of plant and equipment. Inspection helps determine when a piece of equipment has reached the end of its economic life and is subsequently phased out of service. Once that has happened, the piece of equipment can be scrapped, which involves removing it from the financial asset register, complying with regulations regarding the environment, salvaging any re-usable parts and taking it offsite.
While automatic testing and diagnostics characterize much of today's Industrial equipment, much physical infrastructure would benefit from the service assurance and active asset management that these ECM solutions can bring.
ECM solutions from OpenText for Operations & Maintenance deliver this functionality with the following software:
- Business Process Management
- Document Management.
