Fiix Software: How a major player in the oil & gas industry decreased downtime
Sean Simon is the SVP of Operations at CIG Logistics, where sand is transloaded and stored for third parties in the oil and gas industry. Before looking into CMMS solutions, his team spent three years trying to manage their maintenance operations with a paper-based system, leaving them with the major issue of not being able to gather or access data. “There’s no way to mine paper. There was no daily summary, no way of tying together comments or keywords.” As a result, trying to track and schedule preventive maintenance was nearly impossible. “It was like owning a car in the 1950s. You had to try to remember the last time you did something and guess at the maintenance that needed to be done in the future”.
Fiix Software: Anaren Microwave Implements their manufacturing CMMS
Like many organizations, Anaren had a homegrown work order application that had basic asset management functionality. “It was menu driven, so quite cumbersome,” explained Bill, “reporting was limited and it still relied heavily on paper transactions and records. We looked at our business needs going forward and decided this was one area that could be modernized.” On launching the Manufacturing CMMS project, Bill, the business analyst of the company identified three major areas for improvement:1. Improve efficiency by eliminating paper.2. Improve the control of preventive maintenance. 3. Improve inventory management.
IBM: Minimizing downtime by engaging IBM Services – Technology Support
Simplifying maintenanceHana Financial Group had recently consolidated the infrastructure and resources of 11 of its affiliates at a local IBM data centre. However, the business was left with more than 100 service and maintenance contracts that needed to be reviewed and renewed periodically. These contracts also involved 100 separate bills that Hana Financial Group had to manage. Managing such a large volume of bills was cumbersome and sometimes resulted in late payments. The group wanted to improve efficiency and eliminate the overhead involved with managing these contracts by consolidating its heterogeneous IT systems and data storage systems under more consistent processes.

The first corporation of its kind nationwide, Hera worsks mainly in the environment (waste management), water (aquaduct, sewage and purification) and energy (electricity, gas distribution and sales, energy services) sectors. Other services offered include public lighting and telecommunications. Its range of activities undergoes continuous and constant development, and meet the needs of 4.4 million citizens in over 350 municipalities in Emilia-Romagna, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Marche, Tuscany and Veneto. Right at the technological heart of HERA is HERAtech, the company that manages the work requested by customers for all network services managed by the Hera Group and also handles the design and construction of plants and networks in addition to highly specialised technical activities, such as plant remote control, the technical call centre that manages Emergency Services and the Analysis Laboratories for drinking water, wastewater and waste.The project by Endian for Hera is developed in cooperation with the Fluids Remote Control Division and its main goals are to fully manage the suppliers’ access to plants and devices, and to punctually monitor the network distributed over the regions covered by the service. Control activity takes action in multiple data centers, the places where all critical infrastructure is housed, and it’s all about authorizing access to suppliers and scanning all connections to detect any possible unauthorized devices or intrusions. 
Infinite Uptime: Wireless Condition Monitoring Predicts Failure Of Calendar Roll Gearbox
The calendar machine run by a motor has a shaft mounted gearbox connected to the roller. This gearbox allows maximum paper load and feeds the paper with reduced speed to the roller. In spite of scheduled preventive maintenance, it was observed that gearbox used to fail frequently. The rise in vibrations leading to the eventual failure of gearbox adversely affected the quality of the paper. Monitoring the gearbox was thus vital and critical.
Infinite Uptime: USD 1.2 Million Saved On A Forging Press Line By Predicting Cutter Life
The major press line in the company has a circular saw machine which cuts metal rods with precision in predefined lengths for further heating in the furnace. The cut pieces are then fed to the forging line to make automotive components. The length and perpendicularity of the cut pieces are crucial to obtain a good quality forging.It was observed that circular saw failed to maintain the precise length and perpendicularity while cutting the metal rods leading to heavy rejections. This was a serious concern and routine preventive maintenance was unable to overcome it.
: Gas Pipeline Improves Station Efficiency and Drives Revenue with DataRPM
In the capital-intensive oil and gas industry, businesses rely heavily on expensive assets that are deployed in harsh environmental conditions. From a drilling point in the sea to an intermediate station in the desert, the dynamic environmental conditions at each point along the long line affect the performance of the assets deployed along the line. The systems that are used to support these mission-critical assets must also be highly reliable, responsive and secure.One company that operated a long-distance gas pipeline encountered numerous challenges with the overall efficiency of its pipeline, ranging from sub-optimal usage to wastage of natural resources. Even with the optimal equipment and setup, the wide array of variables in operating conditions combined with the sheer distance covered by the pipeline made running the business difficult.In this case, there were 22 injection stations along the length of the pipeline, operating under very disparate conditions with different efficiencies. This made it difficult to identify the interdependent effectiveness of these injection stations, despite having a large data set on various parameters at each injection substation. Even a single instance of failure could cost the company hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue as well as any additional costs for repairs that had to be made.The company was spending $5 million per mile of pipeline annually in corrective maintenance. Along with this, the loss of revenue due to the undelivered material was estimated at $250 million. With energy prices dropping, the loss in revenue directly reduced the bottom line of the company. With the clock ticking and revenue dipping, building a perfect efficiency improvement model became a top priority.
Infinite Uptime: Smart Ccondition Monitoring Saves USD 30 Thousand In A Forging Unit
The 1000 Ton main forging press had a 75 HP motor and fed a trimming machine. The motor pulley combination was situated on top of the Press at a height of about 15 feet thereby reducing its access for routine maintenance. The company found difficulty ensuring constant uptime of the Press.
Petasense: Wireless Predictive Maintenance to Fix a Dated Walk-Around Program
C&W Services was using a manual condition monitoring program at one of its leading life sciences’ client up until last year. At best, data was collected manually every 30 days, even on the most critical machines, using a handheld data logger. After the data collection, all of the data analysis had to be outsourced to a third party for analysis. This approach has several limitations:1. Unplanned Downtime2. Shortage of Manpower3. Safety and Access to Machines4. Inconsistent Readings Collected by Manual Processes
Luxoft: Saving millions by avoiding expensive downtime for hydraulic fracturing equipmen
To extract shale oil and gas, specialized equipment is used to fracture rock via a process called hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”). To do this efficiently, users must know when their equipment needs maintenance. If the equipment stops working while in the well, millions of dollars are lost due to downtime and logistics. Additionally, our client, a major oilfield equipment company, needed a way to make their product stand out. They wanted to accomplish this by providing oil and gas software solutions but had no idea on how to develop and deliver software in the cloud.
ArtiMinds Robotics GmbH: Robot-supported ultrasonic defect testing and quality control
Ultrasonic testing is a widely used non-destructive test method to check cast parts for invisible defects such as blowholes, pores or cracks. Since the acoustic properties of the material change if those casting defects are present, the ultrasonic sound pulse is reflected and sent back to the test head.Especially if components have complex geometries, ultrasonic testing is often carried out manually. By automating the process with the help of robots, test costs and test time can be reduced and measurements made reproducible.
