Telecommunications, Energy, Utilities and Resources
The first software solution from IFS was for a nuclear power generation company, that customer is now decommissioning their plant. Irrespective of how power is generated, we provide you with capabilities to manage complex assets and the generation value chain throughout its lifecycle.
New standards like 5G mean the telecoms industry needs connected business software that manages many varied challenges to remain efficient. The dispersed asset management of this smart, connected environment becomes more complex.
Managing complex network assets, ensuring that asset performance management is optimal, that maintenance meets all the budget and cost objectives of an organization and in the 'last mile' the optimization of service delivery and customer satisfaction is enhanced is a common goal of the IFS solution.
Use IFS Applications in the oil and gas industry as a project-driven solution to ensure high-level visibility and transparency throughout. Asset maintenance planning considering all material, plant, HSE and HR constraints is complex but can be solved with embedded optimization functionality.
The autonomous fleet of vehicles working tirelessly to extract material is not yet upon us. However, as we move towards the connected mine, asset management and IoT influence will increase. Improving asset reliability and performance remains a focus.
As automation in ports & terminals increases, the role of EAM is to ensure all physical assets are available, performance is high and there is minimal downtime. IFS Applications and EAM supports enhancements to availability and performance.
Plants such as pulp and paper, mills and metal production are typically automated assembly lines; expensive plant and huge investments in infrastructure require excellent maintenance care. Availability, cost control and project execution are the cornerstones of profitability in this asset-intensive industry.
In a heavily regulated industry, managing all aspects of the water supply and treatment cycle requires deep functionality and integration with geospatial solutions for network topography visualization. Infrastructure is often being renewed, replaced or extended and that has to be managed through the complete project and asset lifecycle effectively.
Assets and projects are at the heart of ensuring fleet availability and infrastructure performance, but with large areas covered, geographical information and linear asset capabilities are needed too. IFS offers the functional depth and breadth to ensure you keep your network and assets working efficiently.
