Technology

  • SAP MRS – (Multi Resource Scheduling) – solution for managing maintenance and repair processes
  • SAP Work Manager – application for diagnostics, maintenance and repair of equipment using mobile devices

 

Decision

During the project implementation, SAP MRS, SAP Work Manager and Zebra mobile terminals were used. Technical inspection of equipment from receiving shift tasks to fixing the results of inspections is carried out through special mobile devices. With their help, employees ‘register’ on RFID tags installed on technological units. The screen activates the parameters that need to be checked and enter information about their status. The system allows you to plan activities for the inspection of process units for each specific specialist, to receive more accurate information about the condition of the equipment.

In total, the company has more than 55,000 points of equipment status control, which are checked and recorded in the SAP system. Previously, during crawls, employees collected data on paper, which were later entered into the SAP system, which led to a loss in the quality, completeness and relevance of the data.


 

Result

  • 3-5% downtime due to early detection of problems

  • reduced the complexity of the work by more than 60%

  • 27% reduction in repair time

  • The completeness and reliability of information on the condition of equipment is provided
