Asset Performance Management /

Utilities rely heavily on their field assets to serve their primary purpose – to deliver power to their customers safely, reliably and economically. Failure of these assets, specifically those that fail catastrophically, have a huge economic, societal, legal, financial and public relations impacts.

ABB APM, part of the Digital Enterprise portfolio, is a data driven solution that monitors the condition of field assets (substation assets and ‘out-of-the-fence’ assets) and provides the utility a measure of risk (of failure) for each asset. This information is very useful to manage risk in a variety of ways – failure prevention, system hardening, safety improvement and consequence mitigation – including prioritizing short-term O&M (repair/maintain) and long-term Capital (replace) decisions.

ABB APM uses available data to assess the risk of failure of key assets and prescribes prioritized recommendations for action; these actions are tracked through completion to ensure risk is effectively mitigated. The resulting insights and accountability are critical to our customers to prevent key asset failures and implement a cost-effective risk-based maintenance and replacement strategy. In addition to asset-level insights, ABB APM aggregates individual asset risk information and other data (such as financial, work history and spares) into fleet-level insights for optimal asset management decisions, including: 

  1. Replacement prioritization & lifecycle cost analysis 
  2. Compare to family to find underlying asset (management) themes & outliers to better inform asset strategy 
  3. System Risk & Operational Decision Support 
  4. Spares inventory risk identification
