Industrial manufacturer comparison capabilities enhance analytics, drive profitable decisions
ROANOKE, Va., July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Meridium®, Inc. (www.meridium.com), the global leader in asset performance management (APM) software and services, today announced the availability of Asset Answers® version 1.2.1. Asset Answers is the only cloud-based asset performance diagnostics solution that provides cross-company and cross-industry comparative analytics to gain instant visibility into your operational data, supplying your organization with the insights to drive more profitable decisions. With this most recent release, Asset Answers includes new capabilities to directly compare manufacturer and model performance data for a broad range of equipment types to drive the right asset strategy.
A key competitive advantage today is managing big data for heightened situational awareness. Plant professionals and executives want to access comparative data about the performance of their production assets quickly and easily. According to Chris DeFalco, Meridium Director of Product Management, "A fundamental advantage of Asset Answers is that it securely compiles and continuously updates key performance data which span companies, industries and equipment types. Asset Answers is designed for companies that recognize the power of their own data anonymously compared to others' data and the insights that can provide."
Asset Answers is updated automatically each month for subscribers with fresh, anonymized data that provide subscribers with the latest relevant asset-related information and can be filtered by date range, equipment type, industry, geography, manufacturer, and unit type. Focused on 15 industry-standard metrics, Asset Answers provides detailed information on average corrective work cost, MTBF and equipment count – plus a ranking for each category, and more to give insight into asset availability, reliability, and cost.
"With the latest version of Asset Answers," notes DeFalco, "users can compare the performance of assets from different manufacturers by drilling down through an equipment hierarchy to find specific equipment types, and filtering by manufacturers or model numbers. Because users like to view data in different ways, Asset Answers is configurable in how information and analysis is displayed, including dashboards specifically for executives who want a holistic view of an enterprise, business line or region. By comparing manufacturer metrics down to the asset level, Asset Answers subscribers are better equipped to make informed decisions that positively impact operations and the bottom line."
