Chemical Manufacturing

Maximizing wrench time and minimizing admin time with IFS Ultimo is crucial for achieving world-class reliability in chemical manufacturing. Operators, maintenance engineers, and safety officers serve as the backbone of profitable and sustainable businesses, facing daily challenges amidst limited resources and high expectations. Our EAM chemical manufacturing solution streamlines workflows, reduces administrative overhead, and empowers operators with advanced functionalities to care for assets effectively.


Operator buy-in

To foster operator buy-in for asset care, it’s essential to enable them with autonomous maintenance features, digital checklists & rounds, work permitting systems, Lockout-Tagout (LOTO) compliance protocols, and the ability to sign off on completed work. These features ensure that operators have the necessary EAM for chemical manufacturing tools and support to maintain assets efficiently, contributing to enhanced reliability and safety. 

The whitepaper ‘Optimizing collaboration with the Operations Suite’ examines several challenges and how IFS Ultimo Operations Suite increases the productivity while minimizing downtime.


Integrate Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS)

Additionally, careful evaluation of Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) risks is imperative, especially when dealing with highly hazardous chemicals (HHCs) and significant quantities of flammable materials. Management of change (MoC) becomes a vital function of the Process Safety Management (PSM) program within chemical manufacturing, ensuring mechanical integrity and compliance with OSHA regulations. Commissioning assets with process-hazard reviews further mitigates EHS risks, safeguarding both personnel and the environment.

Our whitepaper ‘Simplifying and optimising HSE management in the chemical processing industry’ explains how an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) system can give you better control over your assets, their maintenance and the crucial HSE processes to help enforce compliance to regulation, streamline operation, and optimise performance.

Rockfon Chicago: Improving asset traceability with IFS Ultimo

Rockfon Chicago has benefited from implementing IFS Ultimo EAM for chemical manufacturing, transitioning from paper-based maintenance records to digital tracking, thereby enhancing asset visibility and streamlining communication among maintenance teams and operations. The risk of human error in maintenance tasks was minimized with EAM for chemical manufacturing, and safety improved across the facility.
