Installed Base Evaluation

Gain Insights Across Your Facilities

The best way to improve operations is to start with a thorough understanding of where you are today. An Installed Base Evaluation™ makes it easy for you to collect and analyze critical performance information within your facility and across the enterprise.

Support Corporate-wide Initiatives

Understand Your IT and OT Assets Across the Enterprise

Consider the advantages in understanding all parts running business critical activities across your enterprise. When you know the status of spare parts and discontinued equipment, you can create a corporate-risk profile highlighting the highest risk for downtime at each site.

With the Installed Base Evaluation service, we use a standard methodology to collect this data and deliver actionable, insights-based reports to you in just weeks.

An Installed Base Evaluation service can help support corporate-wide initiatives, such as:

  • Identifying your most critical assets
  • Reducing obsolescence risks
  • Managing corporate storeroom and spare parts initiatives
  • Confirming all assets have up-to-date bills of material

Hardware

Installed Base Evaluation Provides Actionable Intelligence

Our Installed Base Evaluation provides a thorough analysis of your critical plant assets and condition, so that you can make data-driven decisions regarding their support and obsolescence management.

An Installed Base Evaluation can help you:

  • Reduce costs by identifying and eliminating excess inventory, which can help improve Return on Net Assets (RONA)
  • Increase uptime by verifying critical spares are on-site to support production and maintenance
  • Identify and mitigate risks associated with supporting legacy equipment
  • Update equipment or add a new line knowing exactly what will be affected in your installed base

Software

Improve Decision-making by Knowing Your IT Assets and Migration Risk

A Software Inventory Evaluation identifies your IT hardware, software assets, versions, and potential migration risk. We collect information and provide detailed analysis of Rockwell Automation and Microsoft software.

Our assessment provides a baseline to help you take action based on risk and savings opportunity, in preparation for automation equipment migration. For example, the service might identify opportunities to eliminate unused software and to migrate to concurrent licenses. In addition, we can identify whether the hardware and corresponding operating system can support a specific software upgrade to avoid potential incompatibility.

A Software Inventory Evaluation can help you:

  • Document all installed software and IT assets
  • Determine whether current operating system and automation equipment hardware will support software upgrades, and identify migration requirements
  • Improve performance by determining which of your software packages will need to operate concurrently and which will need to be license-based
  • Optimize licensing and support

Enterprise

Gain a Full Analysis of Your Machines and Equipment Across the Enterprise

The Enterprise Installed Base Evaluation can include a multi-site Software Inventory Evaluation or Installed Base Evaluation. An Enterprise IBE can be customized based on factors such as top at-risk locations and top at-risk machines, or to focus on specific business units across multiple facilities.
