If you have ever tried to clean (and keep clean) your equipment and spare parts database you'll already know that it is a tough job. Thousands of different parts, with unique characteristics, combined with a lack of standards and controls in your IT systems, can add up to the typical problem where your engineers say things like:
- "I can't find my parts...”
- "Why can't I list all the similar parts together?...”
- "Describe it in only 40 characters??”
- “Why can’t searching be easy - like Google?”
- “I could find it if it was on the bill of material...”
Refresh™ software was built to tackle this exact problem. Today we have customers using SAP PM, IBM Maximo, Oracle / JD Edwards, Indus / Ventyx Passport, and many other Asset and Maintenance management tools. Customers use the Refresh™ toolset to deliver automatic short and long descriptions, as well as automatic classification and template specifications on average 10 times faster than the more manual approaches in other tools. Automation is driven by Machine Learning algorithms and Refresh’s global templated content - the largest in the industry including 9000 fully templated classes used every day.
Customers include the world's largest mining company, a metals giant with 100 000 different spares in one plant, the world's largest utility company, the world's largest chemical company with approximately 4 million materials to standardize, and many others.
