July 9, 2019 – Emerson has introduced an enhanced version of AMS Machinery Manager predictive maintenance and analysis software with visibility tools and mobile access to help users identify and act on machinery health issues. New integration between AMS Machinery Manager and the Plantweb Optics asset performance platform enables automated workflows.
The AMS Machinery Manager dashboard is more interactive, allowing users to delve in and discover root causes for asset alarms. Users can click on problem assets to drill down to health data with analytics tools—such as Emerson’s PeakVue technology for early indication of equipment defect development—to receive a clear indicator of overall asset health. An analysis bookmarks feature helps users monitor critical issues. Upon identifying an alert or status that needs further review or action, users can flag items for second opinions or as a reminder to take action or revisit specific assets.
Plants depend on regular maintenance routes to ensure equipment performs properly. Often, ensuring these routes have been completed promptly and properly means creating and analyzing detailed reports. AMS Machinery Manger aids route management by making detailed information available on the operator dashboard in human-centered graphic displays. Users can identify overdue or incomplete routes at a glance—without the need to run a report.
AMS Machinery Manager and Plantweb Optics are part of the Plantweb digital ecosystem, which equips plant operators and technicians with insight into the health and performance of their assets and processes.
AMS Machinery Manager can now be installed on-prem or in the cloud, reducing the need for on-site information technology to manage software installations. Emerson has also expanded the AMS Machinery Manager database to support up to 32GB, helping users consolidate all their asset data into a single installation.
