Title: DYNAMIC MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Abstract:
A computerized maintenance management system for the process control environment which integrates a CMMS system (110) with a process control system (134). The system includes configurator software which allows users to link process control data and maintenance management data (190) using a graphical user interface (130). Integration provides the ability to identify conditions requiring work order response and to either automatically respond to such conditions or to notify plant operators and engineers of required actions. The integrated system can easily associate work orders, maintenance history and equipement health with operational assets using process control objects such as motors, valves, pumps, alarms, and other device display icons.
