Plex Asset Performance Management (APM)

  • Maximize Uptime

    Eliminate unplanned downtime and hit your production targets

    Use real-time data collection and built-in analytics to capture and analyze live data on machine health and performance, compare machines against a desired state, and generate early notifications of potential disruption to reduce overtime labor, scrap, emergency maintenance costs and over P&L impacts.

  • Reduce Machine Failure

    Improve your ability to identify and prevent machine health incidents

    Visualize and trend analytics to support accurate and timely diagnosis of failure causing conditions using historical data storage. Contextualize machine activity with details on specific operations to drive predictive maintenance using contextual traceability.

  • Consolidate Data Silos

    Manage all your data in one system to create context and connected workflows

    Contextualize a combination of OT data from the plant floor and IT data from Plex MES to create single view and support informed accurate decisions. Create and manage maintenance requests in MES or CMMS system directly from Plex APM for more efficient management of asset performance.

Aligned with extreme precision to the pillars of Smart Manufacturing.

Plex Asset Performance Management (APM) is designed to provide immediate value for your company, while preparing you for whatever tomorrow brings.
