Meridium’s Tablet Application Framework is a platform that allows for the rapid development and deployment of mobile, tablet-based applications, which completely integrate to the Meridium APM solution.
Utilizing this platform, Meridium and Rockwell Automation have developed an innovative tablet application which supports key elements of the Rockwell Automation Plant Baseline offering to implement effective maintenance strategies. Capturing a customer’s installed base of parts throughout the plant, in production or on a shelf, is the first step in Plant Baseline. This information assists Rockwell Automation to determine what support services are going to be the most effective to help improve plant asset performance. This tablet application provides Rockwell Automation field professionals with an efficient mechanism to document the installed base of a plant, and then leverage the Meridium APM platform for criticality and lifecycle analysis. Through this software analysis, Rockwell Automation can provide customers with ongoing awareness of plant obsolescence risk and maintenance strategy recommendations.
The Rockwell Automation partnership with Meridium also extends to the Meridium Certified Service Provider program (MCSP). As part of the MCSP Program, the Rockwell Automation Plant Baseline tool is building upon the Meridium APM platform to help customers by providing:
- lifecycle status of installed parts
- a complete criticality analysis to determine the highest priority assets
- a team-based risk assessment, with complete failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) and mitigation actions on critical assets
- "what-if" modeling to determine best-fit strategies, cost and residual risk
- development of preventive maintenance activities for customer approval and loading into an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) system
- written standard operating procedures
- implementation of condition-based monitoring
