Are Your Operator Rounds Adding Enough Value to your Organization?

In today’s dynamic business environment, all industries are undergoing a period of rapid transformation. Organizations need to be agile and flexible enough to meet the high demands of a global market. To achieve the business objective, they must find ways to operate in more efficient, more cost-effective ways. Organization especially, plant-based have enterprise assets or equipment, need routine plant checks or operator rounds. It helps them to monitor assets health and early detection of technical issues, damages, or other failures. Operators rounds are critical for the business continuity to improve plant performance and achieve business goals without unplanned interruption.

Operators perform tasks that include inspecting the enterprise assets/equipment, observations of machine performance and detect technical issues. Factors such as global competition and continues pressure to extend asset lifecycles are forcing operators to carefully consider how they expend their resources and optimize their operations. Though, organizations use the best-in-class software such as ERP or similar. However, operators still face challenges such as unavailability of the right information at the right place, costly and often unnecessary routine preventive maintenance that introduce risk and decrease asset availability.

Legacy system with lots of paperwork leads to greater technology variance within and across plants and adds operational risks. The absence of mobility forces the operators/ technicians note-down the information on a piece of paper or take a printout, carry it to the work field, perform the inspection or repair, come back to their system and finally update the information. It involves too much of back and forth that cause delays in processes. To enable plants front-line operators to take a more proactive role in findings issues and initiating timely corrective actions for enterprise assets, organizations need a mobile solution that can empower their operators to efficiently perform inspection and operators rounds.
