    Permanent Assurance of Serviceability with Lifecycle Information Services

    Modern plant owners want both: securing their investment and the availability of an automation system. This is reflected in the recommendations NE121 of NAMUR AK 2.11.

    The following issues play a central role for the lifecycle management:

    • System functions over a defined period
    • Same functionality on innovated, maintainable platforms
    • Pre-specification of upgrade/update cycles (migration steps)
    • Suitable measures to avoid obsolescence

    Three things form the basis for the realization of these demands:

    • The regular provision of current and detailed information regarding the product lifecycle
    • Recommendations for action
    • System-specific services

    Lifecycle Information Services

    With the Lifecycle Information Services you receive an important basic block which fulfills the existing requirements. You will furthermore receive decision support for further plant-specific services or entries on optimizing preventative maintenance strategies. The portfolio of the Lifecycle Information Services has a modular structure and makes it possible for you to only retrieve the information you need.

    Each module outputs a plant-specific report as result. You decide how extensive this report is to be. Select from three different modules: Basic, Extended and Comprehensive.

    Your benefit

    • Pro-active, regular service information avoids increasing preventative maintenance costs.
    • Optimization of the plant availability through specific service recommendations.
    • Minimizing the risk of functional obsolescence.
    • Avoiding unplanned downtimes or cost-intensive supply shortages.
    • Use of new technological functions.
