Ultimo Maintenance Management

BASF’s own technical service consisting of six employees takes care of all the maintenance in the factory and is supported by Ultimo. Maintenance activities — either corrective or preventive — are all planned and managed in Ultimo. But it is more than just that. BASF also has to comply with increasingly strict laws and regulations such as the NEN 3140, CPR (Dutch Disaster Prevention
Commission), BRZO (Dutch Major Accidents Decree), ATEX 95 and 137 (regarding explosion safety), the Environmental Management Act and the ISO 14001 Environmental Management standard. To do so, BASF gets regular visits from inspectors who maintain these laws and regulations.

Ultimo Maintenance Management software makes:

  • compliance easier to prove;
  • all information easily found in one central place for multidisciplinary use;
  • collaboration with others simpler.
“The investment of the software was recouped within two years.”
