Facilities Management Automation and Networking

Improving facilities management can significantly impact an operation’s efficiency and productivity. Integrating utility automation, building automation, ERP systems, and production-oriented data can uncover inefficiencies and opportunities for optimization that might go unnoticed. Plow Technologies excels in bridging the gap between disparate systems, offering solutions to complex communication challenges.

Technological Islands:

Advanced manufacturing and industrial process facilities often feature areas that have yet to embrace modern IIoT connectivity. Plow Technologies specializes in integrating these ‘old tech’ areas into the broader network using cost-effective, adaptable tools like Lumberjack devices and the OnPing automation platform, ensuring comprehensive connectivity.

Enabling Seamless Expansion:

When expanding or adding new facilities, integrating with existing systems can present significant challenges. Plow Technologies excels in designing networks that ensure smooth communication between new and existing systems, addressing the real costs of expansion projects effectively.

Planning vs. Reacting:

Plow Technologies is adept at designing systems that not only monitor equipment performance but also predict maintenance needs. The OnPing Automation Platform provides detailed real-time metrics like OEE, aiding in proactive management rather than reactive measures.

The Value of Facilities Management Systems:

Facilities Management Systems (FMS) play a crucial role in the day-to-day operations of buildings and infrastructure, ensuring safety, efficiency, and sustainability. These systems encompass a broad range of functions, from sustainability planning and preventative maintenance to coordinating repairs and overseeing facility cleanings​​. Advanced FMS platforms, like eFacility, offer user-friendly interfaces, comprehensive management tools, and robust reporting capabilities, providing a holistic approach to managing facility operations​​.

Choosing between different types of facility management software, such as CAFM, CMMS, and IWMS, depends on an organization’s specific needs. While CMMS focuses on maintenance operations and EAM on asset life cycle management, CAFM offers a more comprehensive view of the facility, including space usage and building automation features
