The first step in preparing for the future is understanding the challenges your business faces today. That’s why as we talk about industrial transformation or technology investments, we work to understand your business.

Then, we dive deeper, to understand how infrastructure, workflow and technology impact your ability to meet your goals. Based on your needs, we provide key assessments addressing operational efficiencies, current automation architecture and the critical network infrastructure that connects them. With our findings, you can confidently identify and prioritize areas where improvements can be made to prepare your business for the future.

Automation Architecture Assessment

ARE YOU CONFIDENT IN THE TECHNOLOGY YOU HAVE IN PLACE?

When you’re busy operating a plant, you don’t have time to think about one piece of equipment, or if there is a spare part for it. But tomorrow that device could cost you valuable downtime.

AN INSTALLED BASE EVALUATION (IBE) FROM VAN METER IS AN IN-PERSON PANEL-BY-PANEL AUDIT THAT CATALOGS WHERE YOUR INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT IS LOCATED, IDENTIFIES YOUR HIGHEST DOWNTIME RISKS AND PINPOINTS WHICH DEVICES MAY BE OBSOLETE. DURING THE EVALUATION, WE’LL:
  • Develop a comprehensive inventory of current, outdated and obsolete parts and equipment
  • Catalog the location of all equipment and spare parts
  • Determine where to find additional equipment if a machine goes down
  • Assess the life cycle of equipment and devices to determine if they are obsolete
  • Reveal excess and unnecessary parts that can't be used on current equipment

Once the evaluation is complete, we’ll offer strategies to help you plan ahead to manage storerooms and spare parts efficiently, avoid downtime due to equipment obsolescence, and determine where and when equipment migrations should begin.
