Valmet launches Valmet Mobile Maintenance (VMM) to make maintenance data available at any time and to create smoother workflows in mill maintenance operations. VMM is a mobile application for both iOS and Android devices.
The application is designed to streamline the maintenance personnel’s and production operators’ work. They can save time and improve work efficiency by creating fault notifications and reviewing work orders on the go.
“We noticed that maintenance personnel and production operators spent a lot of time in front of the computer with complicated systems, making fault notifications from their own notes on paper. Their time was not efficiently spent,” says Timo Harjunpää, Director, Maintenance Development and Outsourcing Services, Valmet.
“The application allows the personnel to work through their mobile phones in real-time anywhere at the mill. It makes all information available to the whole team at once, saves unnecessary work, and gives the management a better overview and control,” says Hemmo Lahtinen, Reliability Manager, Services, Valmet.
Quick, easy, and safe to implement
Equipment identification is easily done via Near Field Communication (NFC) or QR codes. The VMM application uses the same Valmet Cloud platform as all Valmet Industrial Internet applications and has an integration package for SAP, which makes it easy to implement. The application implementation can be done 100% remotely.
The VMM application can be used on both Wi-Fi and mobile data networks. Only relevant data is transferred. The technical solution meets industrial cybersecurity standards, follows all best practices and guidelines and is audited by an external accredited cybersecurity service provider.
The application is part of Valmet’s maintenance development and outsourcing services allowing customers to focus on their core business.
