One of our newest innovations solves challenges in the area of reducing the high costs in asset maintenance. Organizations manage thousands of assets to keep plants operational. Better pooling and sharing of all up-to-date asset-related content is one of the key problem faced by organizations. Maintenance can be a difficult challenge, due to heterogeneous systems, or incomplete operators’ manuals. SAP’s Asset Intelligence Network (AIN), solves these issues. AIN is a cloud-based collaborative network that allows companies to collect, track, and trace equipment information in a central repository. Operators can access up-to-date maintenance strategies, manuals, and more from manufacturers – and manufacturers can automatically receive asset usage and failure data from operators.
