Emerson released AMS Inspection Rounds, an application for the AMS Trex Device Communicator designed to make it easier for operations teams to capture, report, and respond to abnormal plant conditions that pose risks to reliability, safety, and performance. The application allows personnel to record field condition data and automatically deliver that data to other plant systems where decision makers can drive effective action.
Most plants rely on manual inspection rounds to detect abnormal plant conditions not identified by sensors. With AMS Inspection Rounds, operators on rounds can electronically record any abnormal or hazardous conditions immediately, such as unusual equipment noise, spills, smells, excessive corrosion, or safety hazards. Condition data can be entered on the AMS Trex in real-time—timestamped for compliance and audit requirements.
AMS Inspection Rounds delivers condition data to other plant systems via a wired or secure wi-fi connection, eliminating the need for manual entry. It also provides automated workflows to operations and maintenance personnel while they are in the field.
With clear dashboards of routes, status, alerts, and action items, users can identify, schedule, and coordinate steps for resolving issues. Operations and maintenance teams can also access historical data to identify and eliminate root causes of recurring problems.
