IBM® Smarter Asset Management for Integrated Mill Operations helps metals companies optimize asset performance and maintenance in the large, unified facilities known as integrated mills. The solution described in this IBM Redbooks® Solution Guide gives metal-making companies direct visibility into asset usage and operational health. It helps executives and managers at all levels make decisions that are based on accurate, up-to-date reports on the running conditions and performance of their most critical assets. It also includes predictive analytics features that can help companies get ahead of the curve in terms of plant maintenance and turnarounds.

By combining sensor-based condition monitoring with advanced analytics, the solution delivers actionable, data-driven insights to aid in daily operations, shutdown and turnaround management, and regulatory compliance . It helps reduce asset downtime by ensuring maintenance is performed exactly (and only) when needed, and improves overall productivity, which increases operational equipment efficiency (OEE).
