Inter Airport China

Vanderlande Industries introduces MMS, a unique Mobile Maintenance Solution integrating both SCADA and maintenance management, on stand no. 320 at inter airport China from 26-28 September in Beijing. The MMS has been designed in partnership with the company SCHAD.

Vanderlande Industries introduces the Vanderlande Industries Mobile Maintenance Solution (MMS), which integrates SCADA with enterprise asset management solutions such as IBM Maximo.

Vanderlande Industries will use the software to improve the operational performance of their site-based teams to increase the value and quality of service to their customers. Vanderlande’s customers will benefit because of the higher efficiency, lower costs and improved management reporting of the site-based teams.

These sit-based teams will have the ability to monitor system performance from any location using any mobile device over Wi-Fi or GPRS. What makes this solution unique is that it additionally offers maintenance engineers full mobile working capabilities by giving users a seamless integration between their existing SCADA system and IBM’s MAXIMO maintenance (enterprise asset management) system. This further demonstrates Vanderlande’s commitment to innovations that bring customers’ system availability up and costs down.

The solution is available now to new and existing Vanderlande customers who have implemented a full service solution and use a permanently site-based Vanderlande support team. Currently, the company has more than 60 site-based teams. The Vanderlande team at London Heathrow Terminal 5 is the 1st team that is already using this new mobile solution. The aim is to deploy it also at a number of other sites in 2012.

"Vanderlande Industries is the first automation specialist that currently has a mobility offering like this and we are delighted to be offering integrated mobile SCADA and maintenance as an enhancement to our full service solutions. Mobility clearly differentiates us as a supplier and adds a lot of extra value to the overall benefits of using automation," says Tjarko Bouman, director of customer services from Vanderlande Industries.
