Best Operator Driven Maintenance Solution

“We are thrilled to have won the Award for Best Operator Driven Maintenance Solution,” said Johan Made, CEO of IFS Ultimo. “Our approach not only provides a comprehensive EAM solution but also involves operators in simple maintenance activities, enhancing knowledge transfer and increasing efficiency and profitability. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”

IFS Ultimo strives to deliver solutions that empower better collaboration between Maintenance, Safety, and Operations. IFS Ultimo EAM is valued by over 2000 customers worldwide for its user-friendliness and easy adaptability to customers’ needs.

Increase cross-team collaboration

Reducing equipment failures and minimizing downtime is the key to greater productivity and efficiency in industrial manufacturing. At the same time, the costs for maintenance must remain within limits, and the safety of all involved must be guaranteed. Cross-team collaboration is a critical factor in achieving this. Using the EAM software from IFS Ultimo helps eliminate the data silos and communication gaps between maintenance, safety, and operations.

Very often there are situations where Maintenance and Operations blame each other when machinery fails. There is inadequate knowledge transfer, and too little use is made of one another’s capabilities. The safety department is also sometimes accused of being too far removed from practice and only concerned with audits. These are common complaints that can stem from poor cross-functional collaboration.

How can you improve this?

Set the same goals, acknowledge that you need each other, facilitate structured communication, improve failure reports, and coordinate and leverage planned downtime. To further improve collaboration and efficiency, IFS Ultimo EAM software also offers an extensive Operations suite. This suite contains accessible functionality for Shift Handover, Downtime Registration, and Autonomous Maintenance to involve operations/production in maintenance, gathering information, and streamlining your processes.

Benefits summarized

IFS Ultimo EAM customers benefit from:

  • Structured communication and paperless meetings between teams and shifts
  • Improved efficiency by involving operators in maintenance tasks
  • Better availability and reliability, resulting in more revenue and margins.
