VIRTUAL TASK SCHEDULING ASSISTANT
In day-to-day asset management, planning and scheduling activities are essential for achieving maximum performance from your machines and equipment. Defining “what” and “how” to do – planning – involves analyzing intervention history, manufacturer manuals, and the expertise of specialized teams in operational engineering, maintenance, and reliability to design preventive maintenance plans and predictive maintenance actions that aim for maximum availability and maintainability of a machine, operating within reliability standards for which it was designed.
After this planning stage, it is important to define “who” and “when” for the execution of these plans, the famous scheduling of daily activities. This is as important as the planning stage because it is necessary to assign the maintainer with the appropriate skills and determine the best timing for the intervention to minimize impacts on processes and maximize the asset’s lifespan.
In today’s technology-driven environment – machine learning and AI – it is already possible to automate routine tasks in companies. And now, in Manusis4 Insights, our advanced cognitive technology solution, you can create your own Virtual Maintenance Scheduler!
Through a parameterization process that combines maintenance plans, data history, opening horizons, technician skills, and service requests, our Virtual Maintenance Scheduler analyzes the data, automatically opens a work order, and sends it to the maintenance technician’s smartphone or maintenance team, who will use Manusis Mobile to execute the order and record all information in the platform for feedback purposes.
In a conventional maintenance setting, depending on the asset management platform used – a CMMS, EAM, or general maintenance module – a maintenance scheduler is required to manage 40 to 50 work orders per day, dedicated full-time to this process. A company generating 10,000 orders per month for scheduling would need 10-15 schedulers. Imagine having the Manusis4 Insights Virtual Maintenance Scheduler performing scheduling actions 24 hours a day and redirecting this team of professionals to the areas of planning, reliability, and asset management intelligence, to further analyze data and promote improvement actions!
That’s right, the future has already arrived in asset management, and we can help you with this digital transformation.
