CIM Cloud

CIM Cloud’s comprehensive Production Monitoring and Condition Monitoring solutions provide real time visibility and insights into machine utilisation, performance and availability, helping manufacturers to improve production line efficiency and reduce waste as well as improve equipment reliability and reduce unplanned downtime.

SOLUTIONS:

Production Monitoring

CIM Cloud enhances production operations by enabling you to monitor production processes in operation. With real-time visibility of production line efficiency and customisable metrics such as material consumption and output, CIM Cloud provides actionable insights allowing production managers to identify and resolve production line issues quickly.

Visualize your entire production environment and drill down into individual lines, machines and specific metrics. Identify non-optimally performing assets and improve overall performance and process adherence. CIM Cloud securely stores performance history metrics, trends and analysis so you can assess both current and previous operating periods.

CIM Cloud’s open architecture allows it to integrate with multiple data sources and third-party devices, making it suitable for almost any environment and allowing customers to leverage their existing investments by complementing these with CIM Cloud’s rich insights to increase efficiency and productivity. Deploying CIM Cloud will help you to maximize the efficiency of critical production assets enabling you to ensure key metrics and production targets are met.

Condition Monitoring

Utilising advanced analytics and the latest IoT technologies, CIM Cloud collects and analyses important machine data such as vibration, temperature, torque, pressure, run time, power consumption and much more, providing a consolidated view of all machine data regardless of location.

Performance anomalies caused by component wear, misalignment or improper use can all lead to machine failure. Through advanced analytics and machine learning, CIM Cloud detects trends and provides early warning of deteriorating machine condition and impending problems, enabling preventative maintenance activities to be scheduled proactively and the lifetime of critical machinery to be extended. By avoiding unplanned downtime, costly interruptions to production are minimised and maintenance overheads are also greatly reduced.

CIM Cloud’s automated information gathering and analysis enables service teams to identify and manage irregularities from anywhere, without the need to gather data manually. And because the solution is cloud-based you can access both real-time and historic measurement data any time, from anywhere.

CIM Cloud Dashboard – a window into your world

Now you can view previously inaccessible machine data, giving you real-time visibility into the operating status of your critical equipment, identifying issues before they become expensive problems or painful disruptions. CIM Cloud provides a consolidated view of all your equipment, regardless of location.

  • Visualise your entire critical equipment estate and drill down into individual machines to see real-time status information
  • Understand real-time and historical equipment performance and how it is affecting your business operations
  • Maximize equipment effectiveness by understanding usage patterns, identifying peak hours and idle times
  • View asset management information and asset utilization information to help service teams understand ongoing equipment needs
  • Understand how to optimally deploy equipment to balance workloads and ensure users can seamlessly execute jobs
  • Alert service teams with advance insights into potential disruptions and take corrective action to minimize downtime
  • Historical performance data, trends and alarms are stored in our secure databases and always available to you
  • User friendly, cloud based solution, accessible from anywhere via web or mobile interface


Easy installation and setup

CIM Cloud’s solution is modular and easily configured with your systems. Integration of CIM Cloud’s sensors and information gateway is straightforward, enabling you to start monitoring all of your machines in just a few hours.

Proactively monitor, analyse and resolve

With 24×7 automated monitoring and alerting, CIM Cloud removes the need for manual monitoring or measurement thus helping you to improve plant stability. CIM Cloud quickly identifies under-performing assets using advanced analytics to help identify the root cause of performance anomalies and to also predict impending failure. Forearmed with this insight preventative action can be taken by service teams to resolve issues and avoid costly interruptions or downtime. 

Root cause analysis

Machines experience various issues throughout their operational lifespan. Vibration, temperature and pressure variations, overuse and misuse, inconsistent electrical supply and other factors can all negatively affect the performance your equipment. These problems often go unseen, leading to equipment failure before they can be detected and addressed. CIM Cloud addresses this challenge by utilizing modern machine learning techniques to identify developing failures and alerting on it. We train our models with your data to identify abnormal operation and predict imminent failures helping you to take action before it’s too late.

Take control of your equipment maintenance

CIM Cloud’s anomaly detection provides accurate predictions of impending disruptions, giving you more time to plan maintenance activities. Aligning with your specific needs and continuously evaluating the operating conditions of your assets, CIM Cloud monitors and reports on machine condition as well as operational behaviour, allowing for more targeted maintenance planning and better management of servicing budgets.

Minimize downtime and improve the lifespan of your equipment

By enabling visibility of previously unavailable machine data, CIM Cloud empowers decision makers with insights into the performance, health and availability of their critical equipment, enabling them to take action in real-time to ensure that operations run smoothly and critical machines perform as intended. Early detection and remediation of problems not only minimizes downtime, it also improves the working lifespan of the equipment by ensuring that it is performing optimally. 

Pay only for what you use

CIM Cloud’s flexible licencing model allows you to access all of the benefits of CIM Cloud on a subscription basis without incurring the costly overhead of having to purchase and maintain the software yourself. Instead, we host the software, servers and databases in our secure cloud environment, enabling you to access it from anywhere and pay only for the resources that you consume for your individual requirements. And as your business requirements change, CIM Cloud’s scalability ensures it adapts with you and always fits your needs.

Solutions designed in partnership with you

CIM Cloud’s team of highly skilled engineers will work with you to gain a thorough understanding of the production flow within the plant, identifying the relevant data sources and mapping this to the physical machinery. Integration of sensors and information gateway with your systems is programmed by our engineers who partner with your team to ensure they are familiar with the system components and operation. Once deployed, CIM Cloud ingests data from your machines and learns from this data to determine optimum operating thresholds.

IOT delivers new possibilities

Utilising IOT and Cloud technology CIM Cloud collects and analyses relevant machine data such as vibration, temperature, pressure, run time, power consumption and much more, providing plant managers with a consolidated view of all machine data, via a web or mobile interface.
