Plant Maintenance using an iPad
Software development company ifp analytics has created an innovative solution for a renowned valve manufacturer which allows mobile maintenance to be carried out using an iPad.
Based on the "sweepBusiness" platform developed by ifp, a comprehensive and innovative iPad solution for factory maintenance has been developed for a leading valve technology manufacturer. With a real-time connection to SAP PM, maintenance orders are read from SAP and pushed out to any number of iPads.
Maintenance engineers quickly receive fault reports via the iPad, and can then start processing them. All the information they need to maintain and repair machines and systems is on the iPad. The interface is intuitive and results in a significantly shorter learning curve for users. The mobile capabilities and user-friendly information means that less time is needed to identify a component and get to it. Thus increases efficiency significantly.
The maintenance app covers the entire maintenance process including feedback to SAP PM.
