Welcome to AssetCare


AssetCare - an integrated solution from RJW - is the leading system for managing and reporting on all aspects of machinery health. With all the benefits of reliability engineering, such as minimised downtime, reduced operating costs, increased process stability, optimised onsite stock levels and enhanced employee safety, AssetCare makes your production plant more economical, more efficient and more effective.

Key Features


Machinery Health

AssetCare combines RJW's technical expertise with ease-of-use to be the most advanced, yet approachable resource for monitoring all aspects of machinery health and performance. Regardless of the techniques used, AssetCare will aggregate all your condition monitoring results giving an overview of your site, allowing users to easily identify problem areas and drill down to relevant detail. Engineers can filter acccording to the parameters that concern them - whether by problem assets, site area, monitoring technique or component category.


Document Management

AssetCare acts as a permanent repository for all documents and photographs relating to your site and equipment. Documents including reference manuals, site documentation, equipment configuration and test certifcates can be stored alongside copmonents or site locations, easily indexed and available for future use. Components that require software configuration can have their operating parameters stored against the appropriate component record - directly available for upload into any replacement equipment.


Asset Management

AssetCare provides maintenance managers with all tools for intelligent management of their production equipment and stores. Easily searchable information means that it's simple to find and view details of any component - motors, gearboxes, fans, pumps, drives and inverters etc. AssetCare is more valuable in the event of equipment failure though - allowing users to simply enter the tag number of a failed item and then instantly locate any potential replacements. Appropriate spares can be ensured by using the stock reconciliation feature to compare equipment in production with available replacements.


Business Relationship

Every aspect of your relationship with RJW is manageable through AssetCare. Every repair job and quotation is made available electronically, along with appropriate documentation - so customer relationships with RJW are as visible and transparent as possible. The Timeline feature shows a chronological history of all events, whether they are quotations being produced or jobs being returned to customers.


Asset Traceability

AssetCare maintains an auditable history for every piece of equipment on your site. Every instance of a motor being moved, scrapped, sent for repair becomes a logged event, allowing users to view the history of every component, along with a timestamp and the user that actioned the event.

The AssetCare Cloud Platform


The Cloud Advantage

Many maintenance efforts are constrained by on-site IT resources, or the limitations inherent in spreadsheet or paper-based systems. AssetCare takes full advantage of the features and economies of scale provided by cloud computing. Built on powerful infrastructure, the cloud offers a guarantee that AssetCare will continue to grow and be performant for years to come, and the software building blocks available in the cloud mean that AssetCare will always be first to take advantage of new technological developments.


Availability & Security

Backed by the power of the AWS cloud, AssetCare runs in state-of-the-art data centres, removing the headache of system downtime from the customer or busy IT staff. The security, firewalls and threat-mitigation features available go far beyond what any individual customer could implement, freeing you to concentrate on your business - rather than issues of backup, disaster recovery, security, data governance and compliance.


Investment & Future-Proofing

AssetCare leverages the investments in technology made by RJW to bring all the component parts together in a way that cannot be matched by our competitors. Data from our ERP, CRM and asset management systems flows into AssetCare in a way that is unique and gives unparalleled customer experience.

The AssetCare Dashboard


Logging on to AssetCare will reveal the Dashboard screen. The purpose of the dashboard is to alert users to any issues on their site, and to give an overview of work currently undertaken by RJW.



Welcome Message

The welcome message in the top left-hand corner of the screen displays the name of the currently logged in user, and the date and time on which they last viewed AssetCare.


Component Status

The component status table gives a snapshot of machinery health, based on condition monitoring work undertaken. Derived from the most recent condition monitoring data (whether vibration analysis, thermography, motion amplification), the matrix shows asset status against criticality.

This makes it easy to see where alert or alarm levels have been breached, and relate that to the most critical components on your site.


Repair Work at RJW

The column on the right-hand side allows you to see details of components currently undergoing repair at RJW. Each tile shows the RJW job number, a description of the item under repair, your order number if supplied, component tag number, date received by RJW and the expected date of return.

Once jobs are returned to a customer, they are removed from this list. However, the "Jobs" section of the search screen allows you to see details of all / historic jobs performed by RJW.


Order Numbers

Clicking on the "Edit" button under a job description allows you to expedite jobs by providing an order number directly from the dashboard screen. Enter your order number in the box provided and this will be sent directly to RJW staff.

Component Detail


Clicking on a component tile will reveal a pop-up window with details of the selected component. The title of the window includes the tag number of the component, and the window is then split into tabs specific to the type of component selected.

Every component will have a Component Details tabs, showing summary details of the item. The details tab will show tag number, procurement date (if known) and audit date. If the procurement date is known, then the exact age of the component can be calculated, otherwise the time since the item was audited is shown. Other details include component criticality, manufacturer, serial number and part number.



The following tabs may vary depending on the type of component selected. The tab shown below lists the physical and electrical characteristics of the selected motor.


AssetCare will index photos of any chosen component and store them alongside the component record for future reference.


Job Detail


Clicking on a job detail displays a pop-up window with information about the selected job. For every job, we show details directly from RJW's ERP system - including job number, the RJW department that dealt with the job, job description, date received and date despatched, and customer order number.

Jobs are also fault coded, for later root-cause and site-trends analysis. The codes assigned for cause of failure, result of repair etc are shown here.



RJW staff can upload photographs and store them against job records.

Quotation Detail


Clicking on a quotation will display all the relevant information about that quote. AssetCare shows the quote number, the date on which the quote was produced, the employee the quote was produced for, and the RJW staff member who generated the quote.

The bottom half of the window shows the quotation price, expected delivery time and your order number (if supplied).



AssetCare allows RJW employees to store photographs alongside quotations. Any images that are relevant to a quotation are indexed and kept alongside the quote, always viewable from within AssetCare.



Clicking on the "View Quotation" button at the bottom of the window will show the actual PDF quotation document in a new browser window. All quotations produced are kept and are viewable at any future point within AssetCare.



Match Components


Overview

The ability to find matching components is critically important when attempting to locate replacements in the event of a component failure. Because AssetCare has full details of equipment on your site, and because of the unique way in which component properties are modelled in its data store, it's easy to identify replacement items after a failure - something that is fundamental in reducing downtime.



Failed Component

Simply enter the tag number of the failed item in the box at the top-left hand corner of the screen. AssetCare will automatically identify the component and display its relevant attributes. In the example above, AssetCare identifies tag 899 as an AC motor, and so displays manufacturer, serial number, frame size, power and speed.


Attributes

In the second column, AssetCare will display relevant attributes of the failed item. These properties will be different depending on whether the item is a motor or inverter etc. Selecting an attribute will cause AssetCare to match the property of the failed item with every other corresponding item available. The results are displayed in the final column.


Replacement Components

The Replacement Components section displays all components that match selected attributes, ranked according to availability. Items available from stores locations are shown first, followed by production items with low criticality, then medium, then high.


Condition Monitoring


Overview

AssetCare offers the most comprehensive set of tools to allow maintenance staff to view details of asset condition. At the top level, AssetCare gives a uniform view of machinery health regardless of the particular analysis techniques used. Components are shown with colour-coding to indicate whether alert or alarm levels have been exceeded, regardless of whether vibration analysis, thermography, oil analysis or motion amplification has been employed.



Filtering

The condition monitoring screen offers tools to allow engineers to quickly find the assets or site locations that interest them. Using the drop-down lists at the top of the screen, it's possible to filter the components shown according to analysis type (i.e. vibration analysis, thermography etc). Maintenance staff that only want to see the results of vibration analysis can easily exclude other analysis types.

Similarly, it's possible to filter the component list according to site area, or the result of the condition monitoring activity - i.e. to show only the components where an alert or an alarm level has been breached. The final drop-down list allows users to limit the components shown by assigned criticality - for instance to view only the high-importance components on a site. Complex searches are possible - for example, to view all the high-criticality assets in a particular site area where an alarm level has been exceeded.


Layout

Components matching the chosen filters are shown on the left-hand side of the screen. The icon gives a quick view of the type of analysis performed, and the colour shows whether alert or alarm levels have been exceeded - based on the most recent analysis performed. Components are ranked by results, with the items most likely to fail shown first.

Clicking on a component will populate the middle column, which shows the history of analysis performed. Each tile shows the analysis date, and is colour-coded according to the results at that point in time.

The final column shows the results of the condition monitoring - specific to the type of analysis performed. The example above shows the data produced during vibration analysis, along with the analyst findings and recommendations.


Motion Amplification


Overview

New to the RJW condition monitoring portfolio, motion amplication is a innovative recording and software solution that detects subtle motion and amplifies it to a level visible to the naked eye. This is an incredibly powerful tool for detecting potential faults and communicating impending failure to staff that may not have an engineering background.

The motion amplification results and videos are linked to the relevant components on AssetCare and are permanently available for viewing.
