Condition-based maintenance with TRIRIGA

Condition Based Maintenance is frequently used to prevent industrial asset failures. The program assumes that equipment shows early warning signs, if we are paying attention, prior to developing a fault. The same applies to buildings / facilities.

Applying condition based maintenance with IBM TRIRIGA helps to assess a facility or an asset’s performance, capture its life-cycle costs, and to identify necessary repairs and replacements. An integrated set of performance metrics of a facility’s condition is needed to predict when to repurpose, or renovate structures. Building operations and maintenance managers are primarily responsible for assessing the condition of building components like roofs, air conditioning, walls, electrical, and communications. Forecasting facility conditions and predicting repairs before failure occurs, results in cost reduction. IBM TRIRIGA automates demand and preventive maintenance services to reduce the cost of maintenance operations.

TRIRIGA’s facilities and operations manager is an intense CMMS that enables organizations to manage their building assets and facilities over their life-cycle in order to reduce maintenance expenses. It provides condition-based facility assessments that help you to prioritize the areas for capital improvement and assists you in extending the life of your facilities and facility assets.

Condition-based maintenance features of IBM TRIRIGA:

  • Improves the value and environmental performance of facility assets through the capture and classification of facility, building system and asset deficiencies.
    • Provides automated alerts that identify critical equipment maintenance requirements from sensor-level data.
    • Provides real-time alerts for sub-optimal conditions occurring in a building, including conditions such as simultaneous heating and cooling, equipment not on automated schedules, and steam leaks.
  • Evaluates the required investment, energy and operating cost savings, and return on investment of each opportunity.
    • Provides pre-built performance metrics such as preventive maintenance to repair maintenance cost ratio and service response rate to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of maintenance staff and service providers.
    • Provides facility assessment to determine the condition and replacement cost of critical facility assets and calculate facility condition Index (FCI) rating.
  • Automates the generation of work requests and capital projects to manage the remediation of deficiencies or implementation of environmental opportunities.
    • Routes auto-generated work orders to appropriate personnel and service providers as needed for condition-based maintenance.

In a nutshell, IBM TRIRIGA’s condition-based maintenance tools identify building issues before they escalate and require more expensive repairs. It delivers value to facilities / maintenance managers through identifying possible issues before they have a chance to develop into a serious problem.

4 MUST ask questions while selecting the right Integrated Workplace Management Solution

Work space usage usually constitutes the second-biggest expense for most organizations, so it’s no big surprise that enterprises are increasingly actualizing IWMS Solutions to help them take control of their space usage. However the integrated workplace management programming arrangements available vary fundamentally in their extension, configuration, innovation, and simplicity of execution. These variables can substantially influence the benefits one hopes to gain by utilizing such software applications, and also how rapidly one can understand better space utilization, enhanced estimation, and the resulting savings in millions of cost investment funds.

So in the event that this is your first time assessing an integrated workplace management system, or in case you’re not personally acquainted with the cutting edge tools, here’s a groundwork to help you center your assessment on some of the key indicators that have a proven track record of demonstrating the desired results.

  1. Does your NextGen tool integrate your current systems and practices?  The key challenge in most IWMS deployments is in the comprehensive assessment of the qualities and shortcomings of existing interior frameworks and business forms and, in areas where they fall short, adjust them in accordance with the selected IWMS. Surely, we trust that a core focus on success and best practice for conveying an IWMS is to make the new IWMS the default business process, superseding the present business process in everything except in the most convincing cases. Truth be told, with the strong setup capacities of most IWMS’s, this methodology can regularly convey a long haul “best of both worlds” — a hearty, yet institutionalized, effortlessly up-gradable framework that can be arranged to coordinate a large portion of the business’ particular necessities.
  2. What kind of different reports can you generate from your IWMS? Although an integrated workplace management system helps you get more precise information into the framework, a primary requisite of an IWMS would be its report generation capability that should ideally allow you to make optimum utilization of that data. Before finalizing your IWMS, a thorough assessment of the reporting capacity of the system is a MUST. Check if your application allows you to breakdown and assemble different reporting factors, generate graphical and chromatic reports and whether these reports are customizable. These are some basic requisites for any tool’s reporting capabilities, the rest could be decided as per your business operations. Proficient looking reports, taking into account concrete information, gives your RE/FM business the authenticity and weapons to proactively drive modest spacing changes in your organization.
  3. Do the features of your application offer Time to Value on your investment? While it’s a known fact that great structure and programming ease of use is essential for efficiency, there are additional benefits of integrated workplace management that you might not have realized. The quality you can hope to get from your workplace management tool is directly related to the information your operators put into it. That applies to both your corporate real estate operators and your function unit delegates who must incorporate their space data on time. At the point when your integrated workplace management system is structured for usability, with a visual interface that makes it speedy and simple to enter information and to recover it, you can be well benefited by the access to comprehensive and up to date information that you can trust to settle on better space utilization choices.
  4. What is the Return on Investment expected from the implementation of your new IWMS system? Given the wide and extending scope of IWMS, a completely integrated and agile expertise is basic to achieve exceptional ROI. The advantages of dealing with the working environment from a single point are overwhelmingly significant and the result is a substantial reduction in the cost of spacing. To manage all the primary applications – from real estate, facilities management to maintenance operations and projects, across industries, RE/FM leaders need distinctive applications which are connected and share data effortlessly. Apart from the visible benefits of cost savings through better space utilization and cost avoidance from not having to lease new space, your IWMS even offers you the ability to make faster space optimization decisions resulting in maximum efficiency.

With multiple IWMS solution providers in market, today’s RE/FM leaders have easy access to advice from analysts, industrial publications and thought leaders.

Having been there for quite some time now, the IWMS Industry is capable enough to identify and differentiate the specialists such as IBM TRIRIGA, who have the vision and the capacity to actually deliver as against those who don’t.
