Rijswijk, The Netherlands (PRWEB) July 24, 2008
BlueCielo ECM Solutions, a leading global software company offering Engineering Content Management (ECM) solutions, announced today that it has released InnoCielo Asset Management Module 2008, which features upgraded version support for InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise and Maximo. The InnoCielo Asset Management Module enables InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise users to expand their engineering content management solution into a full Asset Information Management system.
Many organizations have been implementing enterprise asset management (EAM) solutions to control the routine maintenance of production assets. However, enterprise asset management cannot reach its full potential without the proper management of asset-related technical documentation, such as drawings and technical specifications. The prompt availability of accurate technical asset information is of critical importance in order to resume production as quickly as possible in case of unplanned downtime.
The InnoCielo Asset Management Module connects EAM environments like Datastream, FAMIS, Maximo, SAP PM and Ultimo to InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise. The module manages all technical assets such as pumps, vessels, process lines and so on, as well as the relationship with their relevant technical documents. For example, when a work order for a pump needs to be created, the relevant technical documentation is immediately available to operations personnel based on the asset number of the pump.
The module can also be used in combination with the InnoCielo Shop Floor Client, which provides operations and maintenance staff access to assets and related technical documentation, requiring no more than a PC with an internet browser, making it possible to provide technical asset information to Operations and Maintenance without integration with an EAM system.
InnoCielo Asset Management Module 2008 is now available in English and German, and compatible with InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise 2008 as well as 2006 and 2007. It also features upgraded version support for Maximo, for version 6.x, as well as versions 4.x and 5.x.
The InnoCielo Asset Management Module is employed together with InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise by companies in multiple vertical markets worldwide such as BASF, Gerdau Ameristeel, Met-Mex Penoles, Sund & Baelt and more.
"We believe the InnoCielo Asset Management Module will bridge the gap between Maintenance and Engineering and that the immediate access to relevant technical information will help us to decrease unplanned process downtime, thereby increasing our productivity," says Kevin Smith, IT director at Gerdau Ameristeel. "I believe this module, along with InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise, will aid in Gerdau Ameristeel's continued growth and success in the years to come."
