Making Data-Driven Decisions with Connected Reliability

Improve maintenance by connecting disparate systems to provide data to teams. Connected Reliability is your solution for industrial data integration.

Organizations are starting to use more sophisticated digital tools, such as computer maintenance management systems (CMMS) and condition monitoring sensors. Integrative technologies and software, including condition monitoring data with computer maintenance management system (CMMS) software, provide maintenance and reliability (M&R) professionals with an overall view of maintenance activities in real time and asset health—all in one place, all at the tip of the maintenance professional’s fingertips.

Leverage your data

Many software programs collect and organize asset data, but don’t connect out to other applications. Data wirelessly streamed from remote monitoring sensors or imported from an existing source or sources can be merged into CMMS software. Teams can also use a CMMS to develop a baseline and use historical and real-time asset condition data to

  • Spot declining asset health trends
  • Discover root causes
  • Predict future asset behaviors
  • Take corrective actions before failure

Wirelessly stream asset performance data—via remote condition monitoring sensors—into your CMMS for better data visualization and use. Fully utilizing a CMMS allows M&R teams to track asset conditions and optimize maintenance activities. After setup, changes in asset condition will trigger software to send alarms to technicians automatically. When properly integrated, these alarms can also trigger the CMMS to generate a work order. Work order information may contain the next steps or the severity of the issue.

Make your data work for you

Planning maintenance and making informed decisions can be easier for M&R teams. By using integrated sensors and CMMS software, catching intermittent equipment issues is straightforward. Furthermore, data is available in the cloud for crews to access. No longer will maintenance rely on manual measurements with handheld tools; no more is there a need for preventive maintenance routes; the way forward is to have all the information you need streamed to a smart device you always carry, such as a smartphone, tablet, or PC/Mac computer.

Two of the most trusted brands in the industry—Fluke and eMaint—provide maintenance and reliability teams with seamless connectivity to their maintenance world. eMaint is a flexible CMMS software while Fluke offers scalable condition monitoring solutions that provide you with a road map for your connected reliability journey.
