ABB Ability™ Connected Asset Lifecycle Management (CALM)
The right work, on the right asset, at the right time, using the right resources
More than ever, utilities are being challenged to maintain high asset availability, reliable capacity and safety with the financial pressures caused by aging infrastructure, and the limited capital for maintenance or replacement.
Customer and industry need
Lack of insight and integration of asset performance and maintenance can result in higher maintenance costs, unnecessary downtime and increased risk. Implementing a connected solution that combines an asset management system with collection and analysis of asset performance data and a comprehensive workforce management solution for dispatching crews, helps companies achieve a proactive approach to maintenance. A connected, preemptive, approach to asset lifecycle management, collectively improves performance and results in improved safety, increased profit, and greater operational excellence than reactive maintenance.
