Process Safety Management (PSM)

Ventyx PSM solution delivers comprehensive safety monitoring insight to ensure operational integrity. It enables organizations to relate functional safety specifications to operational conditions to near real-time line of sight to “as is” versus “as designed.”

Our solution provides context into disparate data that is derived from data historians, real-time automation, control systems, siloed business systems and transactional enterprise systems, such as Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) and Maintenance Management to provide a holistic view of operational risk across your layers of protection.

Ventyx PSM solution creates value by automating multiple manual work processes and continuously monitors protection layers to proactively reduce the risk of incidents. By using intelligent dashboards, the solution not only presents information, but also provides the tools and capabilities to take aggressive action and drive work processes to restore layers of protection before they fail.

Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)

Maximize the performance of your physical assets over their entire lifecycle, ensuring asset availability and reliability while reducing operational costs and risk.

Ventyx Enterprise Asset Management solutions provide a full, clear view of an organization’s asset infrastructure and the workforce maintaining it. Our capabilities extend beyond traditional production assets. With Ventyx, you can manage multiple asset types and still have one clear view of the entire asset infrastructure. Key benefits include:

  • Improving asset and resource utilization
  • Improving equipment readiness
  • Increasing safety and mitigated risk

Equipment Reliability

Focus on increasing asset availability through our suite of equipment reliability solutions. Identify the critical-asset functions, failure modes, failure causes and failure consequences to determine the appropriate preventive maintenance strategy to prevent or mitigate failure.

Improving performance while managing costs effectively is dependent on equipment reliability and asset health. Proven maintenance strategies—including preventive and predictive programs, long-term asset management, and the ability to measure a program’s performance—are essential to optimizing asset reliability and operation performance. Key Benefits include:

  • Selection of the most appropriate maintenance strategies by asset type.
  • Reduced asset failure through better prioritization of key issues and work.
  • Optimized maintenance operations through the ranking of key activities.
  • Greater insight into key resourcing challenges, delivering smarter project management.
  • Improved asset reliability from a comprehensive view of asset health and plant operations effectiveness.
Operations Management

Enhance the efficiency, productivity and safety of plant operations by achieving a consistent, organized and integrated approach for all plant-related operational processes.

Asset intensive organizations service and operate their assets in the field, where they live. This workforce is often distributed across vast distances, or in remote and dangerous locations, and exposed to volatile conditions. Ventyx solutions provide unique mobile business applications that take asset management and business processes to the work site to automate processes and to safely and efficiently perform inspections, maintenance and repairs.

  • Improving quality, consistency and efficiency of asset-based work
  • Reducing workforce fatigue and improving workforce safety

Understanding parts management and inventory optimization plays an important role in an organization’s success – particularly in relation to mission-critical assets. The challenge is how to best balance inventory levels. Ventyx Parts Management is the most effective way to reduce inventory while protecting against the risk of stock-outs. Key benefits include:

  • Reducing asset down-time by increasing maintenance team efficiency
  • Reducing working capital tied up in inventory
  • Improving the effective management of stock

Asset-Intensive Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Asset intensive industries managing skilled workforces in remote and dangerous locations and capital-intensive commercial operations require specialist Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions focused on the unique challenges faced by asset intensive industries.

Asset intensive industries tend to focus more on the complex plants and equipment they use than the products they produce. Any interruption due to plant or equipment failure can result in lost production that may be unrecoverable. The enterprise asset management components of the ERP software are as important as material requirement planning components for a manufacturing organization. Asset-intensive ERP has been specifically designed to maximize asset productivity and help prevent equipment failure that can lead to lost revenue and safety and environmental risks. Key benefits include:

  • Improving management of human resources and skilled labor
  • More rigorous control of data collection for financial and managerial reporting
  • More effective corporate governance and better transparency
  • A more efficient supply chain that frees up capital tied up in inventory
  • Improving availability of assets and reduced stock-outs of critical items
