Digital technology company ABB has exhibited a new app for productivity and monitoring, scheduled to come out in the second half of 2019.

The Asset Management Application will allow real-time monitoring of equipment, plus connected and field devices, with the aim of reducing downtime, preventing equipment failure, and optimising operation and maintenance.

ABB Ability Edge will be used to connect assets with the cloud, separating information and operational technology, and the application will let customers make quick and informed decisions based on clear recommendations, says Neil Shah, global product manager for device management and asset optimisation at ABB.

“One of our priorities when developing the Asset Management App was to provide customers with complete control over knowledge of the process. In doing so we will, for the first time, give them the flexibility to quickly create their own asset models from the intelligence they gather.

“Asset analysis, including root-cause analysis, is another key factor in helping customers to remain competitive in today’s industrial markets,” he said.

The app will be part of ABB Ability, ABB’s digital offering, which brings together an industrial internet technology platform and cloud infrastructure with more than 210 industrial internet solutions.
