Are we seeing practical adoption of M2M technologies finally. Meridium points to that as a key feature of its latest release of its Asset Performance Management software. Enhanced support for work process also fits snugly within the trends of the past few years.
Version 3.5.1 of its Asset Performance Management (APM) software enhancements include new work process dashboards for the end-to-end management of performance improvement opportunities, expanded monitoring policies to address process excursions and enhanced integration capabilities to enable machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.
“Every Meridium product release is a reflection of fulfilling customer needs,” said Bob DeMaria, Maintenance Engineering Technical Advisor at Dakota Gasification Co. “As a Meridium user, it amazes me how every release offers a new solution to our challenges. For example, in v3.5.1 they added a new analytical model, which allows us to ‘see’ the impact performing an inspection has on an asset’s risk ranking. This added functionality will provide huge efficiency gains by allowing us to optimize our inspection intervals.”
Meridium v3.5.1 Policy Manager boosts M2M integration with advanced analytics to drive the right actions from the wealth of information collected. This includes new monitoring capabilities to automatically trigger, close and analyze integrity operating window (IOW) excursions or other critical events. “Operation of assets outside the defined integrity operating window introduces unknown operating risk,” said Louise Pattison, Meridium Product Manager. “Conditions change, and if you are not tracking process excursions, you may be living under a veil of false security.”
