Port Solutions

Staying efficient. Staying safely afloat.

Ventyx understands that ports are the lifeblood of any economy and a critical breakdown in the asset infrastructure impacts the delivery of goods.

Port authorities are on the front lines of protecting a country’s safety – they inspect and approve every cargo entry. They also maintain a widely dispersed set of fleet assets required to load, offload, and move cargo. Incorporating best maintenance practices improves operation efficiency in this tight-margined industry where port shutdowns result in months-long backlogs of goods.

Port Industry Challenges

Ventyx can help public infrastructure organizations address the challenges around ports:

  • Managing a set of various assets as an operational unit - Organizations require a flexible solution that can analyze data to predict and plan maintenance activity and costs in order to optimize operations.
  • Managing downtime and availability through an organizational view of the asset ecosystem - Organizations need a “single source of truth” that aggregates spatial and hierarchical asset data so that conditions observed in the field can be quickly and reliably reported to minimize the time an asset is out of service.
  • Ensuring facility availability through maintenance best practices - This includes improving the way work orders are developed and segmented according to the type of work in order to provide greater predictability around maintenance needs.
  • Improving port security and accountability of assets - Auditable and accurate asset condition monitoring and usage information ensures that assets are not being used for unauthorized or illegal movement of goods through the port.

Asset-Intensive Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Essential 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 bulk mining companies.

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
