Orion eAPI: Enterprise System Focused on Asset Performance Management
Reliability Business IntelligenceTM
- What is the equipment reliability during the operational lifetime?
- What is the effect of scheduled maintenance on system downtime?
- How many spare parts are needed to keep the equipment operating efficiently?
RAM analysis is key to successful asset management.
ReliaSoft's Orion eAPI (enterprise Asset Performance Intelligence) software tool is an enterprise solution for asset performance management. The system is a powerful tool for transforming raw data into meaningful information that will support strategic decisions for your organization.
Collect Raw Data from a Variety of Databases
Orion eAPI can connect to many different databases and CMMS/EAM systems (such as SAP®, Maximo®, Oracle®, Access®, SQL Server®, etc.). Dedicated adaptors designed specifically for each particular data source will allow your organization to upload work orders, production loss data and other relevant information into the Orion system on a recurring basis.
Apply the Most Effective RAM Analyses
Orion's integrated data analysis modules will enable you to perform accurate equipment performance assessments using the most effective Reliability and Maintainability (RAM) analysis techniques available. These include:
- Life Data Analysis (Weibull analysis)
- Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
- Optimum Preventive Maintenance Intervals
- Spare Parts Forecasting
- Reliability Growth Tracking (Crow-AMSAA)
The system also provides convenient access to ReliaSoft's suite of standard software tools to facilitate related analyses, including (but not limited to): RAMS modeling, Life Cycle Cost (LCC) estimations, Life-Stress Relationship modeling, FMEA, Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM), Fault Tree Analysis and Repair Effectiveness calculations.
Display and Track Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
The key performance indicator (KPI) module offers a wide array of metrics to assist with asset performance management decisions, such as "Bad Actors," MTTF/MTBF, Mean Time to Repair, Availability, Number of Failures, Production Loss, Maintenance Costs, etc. Each user can configure the display to fit his/her particular needs, and the system can send automated e-mail notifications ("KPI Alerts") when a metric moves beyond a specified range.
Manage Improvement Projects to Control Costs and Improve Availability
Orion also provides built-in capabilities for defining and managing improvement projects that your organization may initiate to control costs and/or address reliability/availability concerns. You can use the system to prioritize and monitor progress, send automated e-mail notifications for pending actions and track the return on investment.
A Powerful Asset Performance Management Solution
By offering all of these capabilities in a single enterprise-wide, database-driven system, Orion eAPI will enable your organization to bring together all relevant data, analyses, improvement projects and action plans in a centralized, searchable asset management knowledge base. This cross-functional information sharing will facilitate your organization's current asset management activities while also preserving a history of "lessons learned" that will help to save time and money in the future.
