Every industrial facility is unique – a set of processes of which some are more prone to failures than others or more critical for the production. To identify these is the key to improved production reliability. Preventive maintenance is carried out according to the strategy chosen by the customer; we help them to find the optimal balance in maintenance.
Our digital solutions represent the state-of-the-art development in industrial maintenance. In our services, we utilize the robust experience of industrial processes that our personnel has, as well as IoT, big data and mobile technology.
We optimize the operation and preventive maintenance at the facilities and support thus the development of production reliability. We investigate, for example, the following areas:
- availability: how efficiently do the processes work and are they optimally used?
- preventive maintenance: what is the procedure to carry out regular maintenance inspections and maintenance?
- criticality classification, modelling and simulation of production: which of the machines and equipment are vulnerable?
At the latest, when breakdowns and stoppages indicate that the preventive maintenance program or its implementation has failed, we need to utilize modern tools to develop systematic preventive maintenance.
The plant may have a proper maintenance program but work planning and communication between production and maintenance may flow inadequately. Also these problems need to be addressed – with our professional help they can be solved.
Our digital toolbox: Optimization, foresight and work management
MP INtelligence® is a predictive system based on neural network. It warns of equipment failures and process disturbances long before the sensors in the facility react to them. MP INtelligence helps to avoid production stoppages and downtime due to unexpected breakdowns, which may save millions of euros. The system continuously learns more about the plant operations and the findings that lead to actions. It also guides the operators to optimize the plant operations.
MP INtelligence has demonstrated its benefits in Finland at various power plants where it typically eliminates some 30 – 80% of unavailability costs. It is at its best as part of systematic plant operation and well-managed maintenance.
The service includes real time collection, handling and analysis of customer data as well automated instructions and alarms for customers to prevent production disturbances.
Modelling and simulation of plant maintenance serve dynamic predictive maintenance which ensures that the preventive maintenance program has been optimized in accordance with the plant’s performance targets. Maintenance resources can be allocated without delay to the most critical objects from the business point of view.
MP Flow® is our field work management system which ensures that right maintenance work is performed at right time and that there are enough resources to carry out the work successfully first time.
Our technicians us the MP Flow mobile application where maintenance needs and orders are transmitted, and the data is updated in the plant’s maintenance system without delay.
