What about the assets on the assets?
May 25, 2022, 10:45 - 11:15 AM CEST

The core assets in an industrial operation are understood to require a lifecycle plan, and all of the care and maintenance that implies. But even as the environment around those machines changes, the automation and IT assets that drive them – the assets on the assets – are often only given “keep-it-running” consideration. However, early adopters of more robust technology asset management and version control solutions are finding that the right tools around the equipment base can not only defray the costs involved in maintenance, they can offer meaningful daily value. Whether adapting to constant process and recipe evolution in manufacturing, or the shift to “smart networks” in the utilities space, a good tech asset management solution means industrial firms can improve their capabilities in areas such as error-proofing, proof-of-compliance, project team coordination and more.

To give conferences attendees ideas on where octoplant can positively affect their operations, Novotek will share insights gleaned from engagements with customers across several industry types, including consumer goods production, life sciences manufacturing and water utilities. Those experiences illustrate how technology asset management has become integrated into regular work processes, and how that is delivering value to those operations.
