Asset Optimization

传统上,资本密集型企业面临着一个艰难的决定:安全或最大化利润?基于日历的和基于使用情况asset maintenanceare expensive and require production to be stopped and even then only catch 20% of maintenance needs. Wouldn’t it be cheaper to just fix equipment when it breaks?

抱歉不行。Unplanned downtime资产失败的成本可能是计划制造停机期间进行的资产维护的15倍。尽管冗余关键设备允许公司快速将生产重新恢复在线,并获取并保持重复的封存费用成本。深入了解将停机时间保持在不超过预算的情况下,这是当代行业的关键部分。

资产优化是为公司找到最佳利用资产的过程。资产优化旨在找到效率和可靠性之间的平衡。例如,如果没有以100%的容量运行一台设备并保持重复的存储空间,这两个设备的运行均为60%怎么办?会增加或reduce downtimein the long run? Is it worth the headache?


Efficient and reliable operations

如果公司拥有无限的资源,则增加制造正常运行时间很简单:广泛的冗余和将设备保存在狭窄的操作窗口中是减少停机时间的肯定方法。不幸的是,这种方法在资本和任何实行这种谨慎风险的植物方面效率低下。

In the real world, companies have to make a profit. That means taking on the risk of制造停机时间。资产优化旨在最大程度地减少停机时间,同时通过准确建模和投影资产使用来最大化利润。


Requirements for asset optimization

In order to make optimal use of assets, an organization first needs an accurate picture of its assets.Asset management softwareasset performance management software跟踪资产随着时间的流逝的运作方式,提供有关使用公司资本的最有效方法的重要信息。首先要计算获取资产的成本,并在资产无法维修或太昂贵而无法维护的情况下更换资产,这是了解资产效率的完整情况的有益的第一步。

Asset optimization crosses department lines at most enterprises; how to run a compressor and how much money to set aside for compressors may be decided by different people in different countries. An enterprise needs to be prepared for the amount of coordination required to make efficient use of its resources.

可以探索不同资产配置的准确数字模型可实现有效的资产优化。Prescriptive analyticstools are a powerful way to both create these models and to explore hypothetical changes in asset deployment.


How to practice asset optimization

完全接受资产优化策略的公司作为一个更精益的组织。然而,当市场条件发生变化时,在一个商业环境中对资产的最佳使用可能会变得效率低下或有问题。旨在在当前环境中进行资产优化的组织还必须考虑情况下如何以及何时适应。

人类经理和运营商可能对如何充分利用资产有一种本能的感觉,但是准确地进行这种评估的专业知识水平很高。此外,如果不同的运营商对如何使用资产有矛盾的想法,那么肠道就不会让自己讨论或妥协。此外,在一个位置使用机械的最佳方法可能不是公司总体使用该设备的最有效方法。

In order to truly implement asset optimization, companies should invest in a prescriptive analytics tool. Prescriptive analytics uses machine learning and artificial intelligence that has been trained on historicalasset performance monitoringdata to generate computer models of asset usage.

These models can either be manually tweaked to explore different operating scenarios, or the model can be programmed to find ways of achieving the organizations goals. A prescriptive analytics model instructed to find ways of using assets with lower overhead and higher output may find counterintuitive ways to achieve asset optimization. For instance, it may be more efficient to keep all the machinery running all the time but at a lower rate, or perhaps a company can actually reduce downtime by keeping more equipment idle. A company should be prepared to implement the recommendations of the prescriptive analytics model.


FAQs

什么是资产和设施优化?
资产和设施优化正在充分利用资产或设施。当最佳使用资产时,它将为组织提供所有可能的价值。这可能意味着调整用法以反映市场状况;当产品价格较低时,减少产出可能比始终尽可能多地生产产品更为最佳。

What is an asset management plan?
An asset management plan is a complete strategy for an asset that projects how an organization will use a capital investment. It includes the acquisition, use, and liquidation or disposal of an asset.
