Emerson uses app ‘AMS Inspection Rounds’ for fast operations and maintenance response

American MNC Emerson now uses an application to record field condition data and automatically deliver that data to other plant systems where decision makers can drive effective action. Operators on rounds can electronically record any abnormal or hazardous conditions immediately, such as unusual equipment noise, spills, smells, excessive corrosion, or safety hazards which can be entered on the ruggedized AMS Trex in real-time—time stamped for compliance and audit requirements.

AMS Inspection Rounds delivers condition data to other plant systems via a wired or secure wi-fi connection, eliminating the need for manual entry. It also provides automated workflows to operations and maintenance personnel while they are in the field, ensuring complete, consistent, and repeatable collection of condition data.

Personnel can now focus on important tasks as they save time from transcribing paper notes to electronic media that generate audit trails. Issues are resolved quickly as users can identify, schedule and co-ordinate steps from clear dashboards of routes, status, alerts, and action items.
