Installed Base Evaluation

Better Knowledge. Better Decisions.

Consulting & Assessment Services

One of the first steps to optimize your assets is a thorough analysis of your critical plant assets and their condition through an evaluation of your installed base of production equipment and spares inventory. An Installed Base Evaluation (IBE) is a site-delivered service that provides actionable intelligence to help you make data-driven decisions regarding the support and obsolescence management of your installed base assets, including both Rockwell Automation and non-Rockwell Automation products.

With an IBE you can:

  • Identify the product lifecycle status via plant hierarchy
  • Identify legacy obsolescence risks
  • Identify excess/shortage of spare parts
  • Include mechanical and other OEM electronics
  • Identify migration/conversion priorities
  • Baseline a Strategic Maintenance Program

On-site collection of data is

  1. gathered by a Rockwell Automation Field Service Professional;
  2. processed and analyzed off-site to determine plant lifecycle risks and overall MRO inventory status; and
  3. delivered to you with reporting, analysis and recommendations for remediation and next steps.

Your final analysis provides:

  • Detailed inventory reports by plant, location, department, line, panel and catalog number
  • Corresponding Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) data
  • Identification of critical spares, including excess, insufficient and obsolete spares
  • Spares inventory handling and storage recommendations
  • Summary of your current cost of carrying inventory
  • Recommended replacements for obsolete Rockwell Automation equipment
