To address the requirements of this quickly shifting market, businesses must integrate intelligent energy and asset management solutions into their current infrastructure.
FREMONT, CA: Today, barely one in ten items can function without electricity. According to the US Energy Information Administration, oil and gas companies account for 62 percent of the total energy resources consumed in the United States. Currently, demand for high-functioning assets and continuous uptime is prevalent in several industries. However, oil and gas production, from extraction to sale, may involve numerous facilities and a complex logistical network, all of which depend on industrial assets' performance.
Using enterprise asset management and dedicated maintenance solutions, businesses can integrate intelligently with all of their assets and a supply chain, access, and evaluate glitches and impending problems or breakdowns before affecting production. The current market instability in the oil and gas industry may catalyze firms in this sector to make constant production adjustments, thereby influencing asset management techniques in the future.
Asset Management and Contemporary Technologies
Energy and utility companies are increasingly integrating cutting-edge technologies, which enable comprehensive asset management. These technologies include data management and integration, distributed control systems, and asset management optimization. The Industrial Internet of Things is one of the current developments altering the conventional approach to asset management operations (IIoT). It is an IoT for computerized devices that enables intelligent industrial processes and powerful data analytics for business transformation.
The IIoT-enabled technologies include big data management, viewing and reporting tools, analytics for asset maintenance optimization, and monitoring.
When incorporated into companies and sectors that rely heavily on the utilization of their assets, a tool or software for asset management can improve the maintenance and administration of mission-critical equipment across all operations. In addition to different features and functions, a software for asset management will provide businesses with other advantages, including—developing proactive and preventive maintenance plans, real-time monitoring of asset performance data according to many KPIs, monitoring the asset lifespan from acquisition through retirement, calculating a correct ROI for every asset, monitoring and managing field personnel, maintaining accurate inventory control, and ordering and prioritizing work orders.
