ROANOKE, Va. Feb. 3, 2011 Ron Shaw New Zealand SAP-Centric EAM 2011
Meridium RCMO® (Reliability Centered Maintenance and Optimization) is the exclusive SAP® Endorsed Business Solution for RCM. Meridium RCMO enables the creation and evaluation of asset strategies for the process, power and discrete manufacturing industries and is the only Reliability Centered Maintenance solution designed and developed completely within the SAP NetWeaver® architecture, allowing for swift implementation and seamless integration with SAP Plant Maintenance.
Contact Energy has also licensed the Asset Strategy Library of industry best practices from Asset Performance Technologies (APT), which produces the world’s largest PM library for industrial equipment. Integration of the Asset Strategy Library to Meridium’s RCMO software provides Contact Energy with the ability to accelerate the definition, standardization and implementation of asset strategies to optimize the performance and operational costs of assets while minimizing corporate risk.
At the SAP-Centric EAM event, Mr. Shaw, Senior Project Manager for Contact Energy, will present "RCMO in Contact Energy: Change Leadership in RCM." Contact Energy, a large, vertically integrated energy company, is currently implementing Meridium’s RCMO product as their Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) solution. According to Mr. Shaw, "RCM is central to the realization of Contact’s generation business vision. Meridium’s RCMO software has already proven to be robust and reliable, and we recognize the importance of partnering with a proven RCM software provider. And yet we know that the software alone is not what delivers useful RCM."
Contact Energy is ensuring successful change by building and implementing a world-class Organizational Change Leadership Plan (OCLP). Incorporating a mix of leadership and knowledge management models, Contact Energy’s OCLP will be the difference between success and failure on the project, Mr. Shaw says. Currently, Contact Energy is in the middle of a staged go-live process that will demonstrate the success of the OCLP and Meridium RCMO.
