Emerson introduces online asset management tool for drivetrains

July 14, 2014 – Emerson's Power Transmission Solutions introduces Asset Management Program (AMP) for couplings, an online tool for tracking the location, life history and latest revision drawings and installation instructions for all critical drivetrain couplings owned by customers, whether installed or in spares inventory.

Developed by Emerson's Kop-Flex business unit, the web-based Asset Management Program (AMP) for couplings accurately identifies couplings, graphically displays the location in a specific drive, identifies parts/couplings at the site that are interchangeable, makes assembly drawings a click away and gives a detailed service history and action to be taken during service intervals.

The demonstration site is available at http://amp.emerson-ept.com, with the login and password of "turbouser." Users can see two plants and two rotating equipment assemblies in each, with sample data.

Coupling AMP provides in-depth information on components critical to the operation of major systems such as compressors, turbines or pumps. Coupling AMP's custom graphics display specific drive configurations for rotating equipment. By clicking on a coupling, AMP opens a "coupling card" with all related information, such as end-user stock code, serial numbers, OEM part numbers, Kop-Flex part numbers, location of spares or interchangeable parts, bill of material, latest revisions of the assembly drawing, installation instructions and service history. The system also maintains records on customer training, trouble shooting analyses, service reports, and more in a history associated with a specific serial numbered coupling. This information is available 24/7 on the Internet.

Coupling AMP is a subscription service maintained by Emerson. It begins with a survey of a customer's site by a Kop-Flex representative where all relevant data is collected. Kop-Flex then populates AMP and provides a user name and password to the customer. Edits and additions are handled via e-mail to Kop-Flex.
