The journey to Asset
Performance Management

Hear from RAKWA where to start

The journey to Asset Performance Management (APM)

Nobody disputes the notion that every organization must move from asset maintenance toward asset performance management.

It’s a moment of enormous opportunity, with digitalization transforming the way businesses collect, process, and deploy data, and with Maintenance 4.0 applying those tools and techniques to revolutionize asset management.
By taking a strategic approach to asset performance management (APM), your organization will be better positioned to keep critical equipment and production lines up and running. Using the mountains of operational data now available will help you track equipment performance, anticipate the need for maintenance, and prevent shutdowns before they occur.

Even in steady economic times, and certainly in the midst of a global pandemic, the decision to embrace the new technology will always be guided by the bottom line, begging the question: But where to start?

Join us on the journey to Asset Performance Management, register to this first appointment of the series to hear:
  • how to maximize the potential of Maintenance 4.0
  • From RAKWA how to modernize current systems through automation and digitalization

RAKWA found that a reactive maintenance approach led to higher maintenance costs, increased downtime, and reduced efficiency. Water management, collection, and treatment is a complex and intensive task which draws on a vast amount of heavy infrastructure and assets—all of which need to be efficiently maintained to ensure optimal performance. Keen to enhance its system, RAKWA hired experts with the right skills to transform the maintenance function of its operations to increase organisational efficiency and capacity, and to modernise its systems through automation and digitalisation.

When we implemented EAM, we were able to reduce reactive maintenance. The system allows close oversight of asset performance and helps us detect deviations before they turn to failures, so corrections became easier, faster, and cheaper.
