I’d Love to Visualize Your Best Parts!

September 20, 2016Blog

No, not those parts.  I’m talking about an Illustrated Parts Catalog for your business.

Maintenance personnel often require spare part information from a parts catalog to create maintenance plans, task lists, or bills of materials. If the parts catalogue is missing or misplaced, obtaining the correct information is time consuming. This results in wasted time, errors or leads to stocking the wrong inventory.

NRX AssetVisualizer allows you to consolidate all asset-related documentation, including illustrated parts catalogs, photos, graphical maintenance manuals, and engineering documents into a single, reliable source, and attach these documents directly to assets in AssetHub. You can load electronic parts catalogs and create hotpoints from drawings and diagrams to parts in a parts list, making it easy to locate part numbers. AssetVisualizer converts parts catalogs from LinkOne, Asset Navigator, and S1000D format automatically.

With AssetVisualizer, you can access your illustrated parts catalogues and maintenance manuals quickly.  You no longer waste time looking for parts catalogs. By having the correct information at your fingertips, you save time locating part numbers, and reduce errors. When your maintenance plans and task lists refer to the correct parts, you can easily eliminate duplicate and obsolete inventory.  Bottom line, you spend less time looking for parts and information, and more time performing maintenance.

AssetVisualizer also lets you do visual parts selection for work orders. When creating a work order in an EAM or CMMS system, you need to include replacement part information for the work. Without easy access to an electronic parts catalogue, locating the part information is time consuming and error prone.

AssetVisualizer integrates with all major EAM and CMMS systems to link directly from a work order to the electronic, Illustrated Parts Catalog for a piece of equipment. You can visually select a part in an exploded parts diagram, follow a hotpoint link to the part and quickly select the part to be added to the work order or requisition. You can then specify quantities, and update the work order automatically, reducing errors.

All-in-all, you execute work orders faster and spend less time looking for parts and information, and more time executing work.

 Virtual Plant Navigation

Maintenance staff in asset-intensive companies often need to locate equipment in large facilities, and can waste time physically searching for a piece of equipment in an unfamiliar area, or trying to locate equipment that has moved. AssetVisualizer helps you create online plant maps for navigating through a large facility to locate a specific piece of equipment. Drill down from the plant or site level in the asset hierarchy to a particular asset, and see exactly where that asset resides in an online map. Conversely, click on a location in an online map, and find the location in the asset hierarchy. You can quickly locate equipment or locations, reducing the time spent looking for equipment. Spend more time performing maintenance, and less time looking for equipment.

If you would like a demo of how NRX AssetVisualizer can help you see your best parts, give us a call.
