Installed Base Evaluation

Gain Insights Into Your Industrial Asset Inventory Across Facilities

Are you certain you have access to critical spare parts and know your equipment obsolescence risk? The best way to improve maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) practices is to start with a thorough understanding of where in the product lifecycle you are today. The Installed Base Evaluation™ (IBE® service) makes it easy for you to collect and analyze critical performance information within your facility and across the enterprise. Now you’re ready to plan for your facility’s future.

Need a Better Asset Management Strategy?

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

Do you crave a better understanding of 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

If you want an even bigger picture, an Enterprise Installed Base Evaluation service can include a multi-site evaluation on your physical assets or software. The Enterprise IBE service 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.

Start with Your Physical Assets

Installed Base Evaluation Provides Intelligence You Can Use

Our IBE service 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.

The Installed Base Evaluation service can help you:

  • Reduce costs by identifying and eliminating excess inventory, which can help improve Return on Net Assets (RONA)
  • Increase uptime by verifying that 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 production line knowing exactly what will be affected in your installed base

Understand Your Software

Get to Know 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 inventory to help you take action based on risk and savings opportunity, as you prepare to modernize your industrial automation equipment. You may 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
