"What differentiates the Ivara customer content library is that it is updated automatically, available to all authorized EXP users in any location and is easy to use." - Florian Lenders, Vice President, Ivara
Burlington, Ontario (PRWEB) January 30, 2012
Ivara Corporation, the industry leader and innovator in asset performance management solutions, today announced the availability of EXP Cloud for Ivara EXP Enterprise 6.1. A cloud computing based library and online collaboration community, EXP Cloud is used in the development and sharing of reliability program content. Customers can download baseline content built by Ivara RCM2 Practitioners for common asset types or by other customers with similar assets. In addition, they can request to purchase and download authorized vendor content libraries and, in the future, OEM content.
This new online community allows authorized Ivara EXP Cloud users to request and share their content with other authorized users. Sharing can be limited to internal databases for global / multi-site companies, reach out to people in the same or similar industry or be open to all authorized Ivara EXP customers. The amalgamated content library is organized by company and sub-categorized by industry type, asset type and asset specifications.
The value of the content sharing is faster deployment of equipment reliability programs for companies beginning their journey to operational excellence. For companies with advanced users, the value is reliability optimization and continuous improvement. Ivara’s content sharing approach extends beyond basic failure mode libraries to include failure effects, PM and/or proactive inspection tasks and associated condition indicators. Ivara EXP indicators include simple numeric readings, qualitative or description readings, complex and rule-based calculated indicators (state determined by a rule, not a direct reading). Alarms are associated with each indicator state (early warning, alarm, critical, etc.) and can be set up to automatically trigger the predetermined corrective task in SAP EAM or any CMMS/EAM system.
“What differentiates our customer content library is that it is updated automatically, available to all authorized EXP users in any location and is easy to use. The search tools are intuitive and like other cloud based services the download is instantaneous,” states Florian Lenders, Vice President, Ivara, “And the environment we are providing in EXP Cloud is free to all EXP Enterprise users allowing them to share maintenance strategies and collaborate across databases and geographies.”
Ivara is the leader in asset performance management software and consulting services to instill a proactive process for Maintenance and Operations to care for their production equipment.
