Emerson announced that it is adding the MyAssets toolset to its MyEmerson personalized digital experience to help users execute their maintenance plan more effectively.
As part of the MyEmerson digital tools portfolio launched last year to improve productivity and collaboration, MyAssets provides instant access to device documentation, replacements, spares, and walkdown reports to help plant personnel better maintain and manage the useful life of their Emerson devices.
“Our focus continues to be on connecting people and technology to make workers better at their jobs,” said Brad Budde, vice president of digital customer experience for Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “Digital tools are about making work processes simpler. With a MyEmerson account, maintenance teams can now more easily find relevant device-specific information to do their work an order of magnitude faster.”
For maintenance planners, MyAssets improves schedule compliance with a single location for device information, technical documentation, spare and replacement part details, and lifecycle status condition. Easy access to curated, relevant device content enables faster creation of work packets, reducing time from hours to minutes. Digital walkdown reports provide detailed analyses of a site’s device conditions – regardless of manufacturer – and prioritized recommendations for next steps, guiding faster and more predictable shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages.
Up-to-date manufacturer information is connected to installed products by serial number, ensuring confidence in spare and replacement parts selection. At release, information for over 10 million Emerson products, covering five years of factory shipments, is already integrated with the MyAssets database. MyAssets is also connected to online engineering and procurement tools in MyEmerson, making it easy for maintenance planners to manage lead time and delivery of parts.
Field technicians can quickly and easily identify devices by scanning a QR code or RFID tag to verify the asset tag and serial number in MyAssets. Device-specific content is automatically connected to the tag, delivering installation instructions and technical documentation to technicians in the field and enabling them to more easily fix problems the first time, improving both safety and speed.
