Simplified Work Improvement Suite (SWIS)
The Simplified Work Improvement Suite (SWIS) extends the capabilities of your Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) software. It makes role-based, expert tasks highly efficient and it makes infrequent-user tasks highly intuitive and easy to perform. All the data required to implement any given task is presented on one screen, regardless of where the information resides in the underlying EAM system.
SWIS provides real-time, direct access to your EAM so there is no duplication of EAM data, and it enables the EAM functions to be processed in a manner that is tailor-made to your organization. SWIS is also designed to allow easy migration to a Mobile Work Package (MWP), giving mobile personnel direct access to the EAM system from an easy-to-navigate user interface on a handheld device.
SWIS reduces the risk of users struggling with functionality that is cumbersome or hard to understand, and resorting to workarounds and process shortcuts that limit the benefits of the EAM. SWIS makes it much easier to find, group, and trend data and generate accurate metrics when data is entered in the correct fields and work is written against the right location or asset. It helps planners, engineers, operations and maintenance personnel when their repairs, modifications or calibrations and related costs are associated to the correct equipment, as it reduces the chance of initiating duplicate work or missing important data when making decisions about the equipment.
Performing this task with the Work Order Planning module in SWIS is far more efficient than navigating multiple, diverse EAM system screens to find and process the required information.
The Work Order Completion workflow consolidates all the pieces of work order package closure on a very simplified set of closure screens that make the process easy to learn and remember.
There are times when the same update must be made to multiple work orders or work order tasks, or when one update will have a ripple effect on a multitude of other records.
The Lubrication Management module supports a more efficient and effective lubrication program by avoiding the need for a homegrown spreadsheet or external database and having to manually replicate the data in the EAM system.
The Improvement Request process for outages allows for the identification and tracking of gaps between industry best outage performance, scheduled outage performance, and actual outage performance.
