Knowledge is a decisive factor when it comes to increasing productivity and competitiveness. Complete know-how about the state of your plant ensures optimum maintenance schedules. The W@M Life-Cycle Management from Endress and Hauser supplies you with current and complete information about your plant, including instrumentation from external suppliers.
With solutions for Life-Cycle Management covering all processes, Endress and Hauser offers sustainable solutions for the plant operator. This is of decisive importance for planning, procurement, installation and commissioning processes, as well as for operation of the plant. W@M Life-Cycle Management features an open and flexible information platform with software applications and services to support the entire plant life-cycle.
W@M supports particular instrumentation and measurement technology specifications as selected during the planning phase. The applicator from Endress and Hauser is a tool that enables the user to select the correct instrumentation while opening an all-encompassing library of technical documentation. With the applicator, a W@M data set is generated that uniquely identifies the instrument and makes it traceable for all subsequent processes in the life-cycle of an instrument.
When purchasing, W@M helps to efficiently check availability and prices. Simply put the configured instrument into the product basket, click to purchase and the status of the order and delivery can be monitored on-line. In addition, electronic catalogues and replacement part lists simplify ordering so that users can transact their purchase from beginning to end in the Endress and Hauser on-line shop.
W@M Life-Cycle Management offers all the information required for reliable installation and start-up. Documentation, software and certificates in a number of languages can also be downloaded. In the start-up phase of a plant, users with W@M have fast access to all available information including spare parts, software versions and histories of all installed instruments in the plant’s database. This ensures the user can fulfil the increasing quality requirements, including traceable and certifiable calibration and documentation.
By networking software applications, W@M Life-Cycle Management safeguards the flow of information and integrity of all data without requiring the constant attention of the user. Open and flexible interfaces offer comprehensive options for integrating into current systems for planning, purchasing and computer supported maintenance systems. During the entire life-cycle of a facility, W@M Life-Cycle Management offers valuable information while saving time and reducing costs. It thus contributes to consistently reliable planning, giving a competitive edge and decisive advantage.
W@M Portal and W@M Enterprise are two solutions available to the user in supporting the entire life cycle of a plant.
