Preventing Unplanned Downtime Through Predictive Maintenance


Asset-centric field service organizations need to be proactive. Car owners are familiar with the concept of manufacturer-recommended maintenance. You change the oil every 3,000 miles with the expectation of reliability and peace of mind. The same holds true in the context of industrial and medical equipment. To encourage regular upkeep, many service organizations offer maintenance plans to help avoid costly and disruptive emergency repairs. In addition, customers expect improved uptime from properly maintained equipment and assets.

Service Metrics That Impact The Bottom Line


Traditionally, the service organization has been viewed as a cost center, hampered by siloed data and manual processes that don’t provide true visibility into its performance and the impact on profitability. Modern senior finance and operational leaders are transforming service models by digitizing and automating field service to improve efficiency. However, it’s not enough to simply reduce manual processes. Without the right data analytics, systems, and processes in place to track service performance, little can be done to improve what is not measured.

Delivering on the Digital Promise


In today’s competitive environment, businesses are under growing pressure to increase output, improve margins and optimise assets. This means it’s crucial to get the most out of filling units, reduce the risk of downtime and to connect, automate and monitor lines. All while driving down costs. To enable the digital transformation to power this strategy, SIG and GE Digital have formed a strategic partnership. SIG will deploy GE Digital’s Predix Asset Performance Management (APM) and ServiceMax industrial applications across hundreds of customer factories worldwide to drive new levels of efficiency, create intelligent solutions and enable new possibilities for its customers.
