BlueCielo announces an integration add-on for its asset management module
BlueCielo ECM Solutions (formerly Cyco Software), a leading global software company offering Engineering Content Management (ECM) solutions, has announced that it has released a much-anticipated add-on module to its flagship InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise solution, named the InnoCielo Asset Management Module. This module ensures the performance of mission-critical assets and avoids costly operational disruptions by integrating engineering content managed by InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise to enterprise assets managed by widely-used Enterprise Asset Management, Maintenance Management and Facility Management solutions, such as MRO’s Maximo, SAP Plant Maintenance, FAMIS, Datastream, Ultimo and others.
The InnoCielo Asset Management Module integrates Engineering Content Management with Enterprise Asset Management, thus bridging the gap between Maintenance and Engineering. Standard integrations are now available with a number of maintenance management systems including Maximo and SAP Plant Maintenance. From the maintenance management system, users have direct access to the related technical documentation, for example, when viewing a work order, equipment or job plan.
Over the years, companies have implemented asset management solutions to get a grip on the routine maintenance of production assets. However, asset management cannot reach its full potential without proper management of asset-related technical documentation. “The management of technical asset information is vital to the entire enterprise and is of critical importance in order to stay competitive and resume production as quickly as possible in case of unplanned downtime,” says Martijn Janmaat, BlueCielo CEO. “The InnoCielo Asset Management Module has been designed to enhance, automate and streamline asset operations throughout the asset lifecycle and avoid costly operational disruptions, thus improving your bottom line.”
The InnoCielo Asset Management Module manages the asset-document relationship in InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise and offers powerful functionality to find the latest versions of documents by asset number as well as the assets related to particular technical documents. This dramatically improves efficiency not only during engineering changes, but also during emergency maintenance and routine inspections.
The project engineering department can link assets to technical documentation and vice versa. For example, a process and instrumentation diagram needs to be linked to multiple corresponding assets. On the other hand assets like a pump or vessel need to be linked to multiple technical documents. When reviewing an asset, all the related and up-to-date documentation is made available by the Asset Management Module.
The InnoCielo Asset Management Module includes the InnoCielo Shop Floor Client, which provides maintenance staff access to assets and related technical documentation, requiring no more than a PC with an internet browser.
