Disasters Don’t Take A Holiday or Care About A Pandemic.

We live in interesting times. I’ve heard from many folks about how their company is postponing maintenance and reducing staff. Folks are asking the same question, how do you balance risk and resources. My response is the same, do you know what assets are critical and the risk impact associated with those assets? Many times folks respond - sort of. Remember disasters don’t take a holiday or care about a pandemic. You must understand the status of your assets and focus what resources you have on the most critical components for your business segment. That’s the nice thing about APM, it helps you focus on what’s important with the limited resources you have. Imagine having the ability to model various scenarios with a digital twin - now that gives you peace of mind. If you are using the right product, you can model and then make changes remotely or make the maintenance team aware of what they should be working on as part of their daily task.

Take care and stay safe.
