    Our Manufacturing Offerings

    • Meet delivery schedules – managing and maintaining assets and resources whilst scheduling outages to improve availability and reliability in order to make deadlines, meet SLAs and satisfy customers

    • Preserve capital – effective maintenance to extend the useful life of assets to defer new purchases and improve ROI for all assets

    • Reduce operating expenses – streamline operations, reduce labour costs, remove excess and obsolete inventory spares, and consolidate key systems

    • Increase operational equipment effectiveness – eliminate recurrent failure stops and reducing changeover times

    • Prepare for regulatory changes – dynamic infrastructure supports the ability to adapt quickly, increase governance and reporting

    • Leverage the active monitoring of asset health to maximize production efficiency whilst predicting failure with AI and monitoring technology

    • Support asset and facility maintenance and manufacturing concepts such as RCM, TPM and GMP

    • Reduce maintenance costs – improve productivity/reliability/quality, deferring non-essential maintenance activities, standardize and enforce processes

    • Maximo also provides a natural alignment with the current PAS 55 asset management or future ISO 55000 standard

    • Enforce your processes at the point of work with Fingertip’s Mobile Forms, using complex conditional logic to guide your engineers through every stage
    • Capture e-sig or hard signature for every process
    • Ensure all Maximo users have real-time data from all your locations
    • Fully support your mobile processes with offline capability
    • Deploy to all major mobile devices types (including ATEX) and operating systems
    • Can support hundreds of concurrent users
    • Works with scheduling to ensure the most suitable engineers attend each job

    Fingertip's range of modules enable it to be configured to suit your specific business needs, and provides you with an unrivalled mobile EAM solurion, and our experts will configure it in the best possible way to match your needs.

    IoT in Manufacturing – The Next Step

    We are now able to take sensor data and interpret that data to bring relevant and valuable advantages to Maximo.

    In general, maintenance work is carried out today by interval-based inspections and servicing – we can now offer preventative maintenance based up on the information provided by sensors. These sensors could already be installed on current machinery or retrofitted and can provide information previously unobtainable due to advances in technology. The cost and efficiency benefits for work management in manufacturing environments are significant.

    Thankfully, we don’t have to rely on human resource to make use of all of this new data. For example, using Artificial Intelligence (or AI), data can be interpreted quicker and more accurately, with exceptions or specific conditions of interest identified immediately. Maximo can be configured so that specific circumstances trigger work orders, inspections and a whole host of commands and operations. There is huge scope for reducing both the cost of inspections and interval-based maintenance, whilst reducing the downtime of production equipment.

    BPD Zenith uses the IBM IoT Platform to connect assets and bring the information from the assets into Maximo. We are also working with IBM Asset Performance Management and other tools from the IBM Maximo EAM suite to further enhance maintenance operations.
