To perform MRO efficiently on a tight budget, customers can opt for an enterprise asset management system that helps minimize object lifecycle cost by classifying core equipment in terms of impact on energy production process resiliency and allocating field crews and money to repair mission-critical equipment first, while taking into account the economic feasibility of such repairs. The system supports integration with any existing ERP solutions, as well as various MRO strategies - routine maintenance, repair-when-needed, run-to-failure (RFT) repair - for each individual equipment type. This system reduces MRO budget by up to 20%, while making energy production more resilient.
To ensure operational control, fast event modeling and optimum operating mode selection, it pays to adopt BIM and opt for digital modeling of your energy facility. A digital twin helps identify potential risks, integrate new technologies into existing production facilities, and speed up and reduce the cost of energy facility construction, upgrade, and renovation.
Command centers and systems supporting decision-making result in better management decision making, coordination and execution control; data collection, double-checking, and analysis; as well as more effective reporting and external communications.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) help integrate multiple customer systems and consolidate technological, operational, and production-related information about the running of geographically distributed facilities. GIS provides a single map, facility-related technological and reference information available within a unified information environment, up-to-date information for operating and repair crews, effective integration of monitoring and data analysis systems, supervised work progress on energy facilities, streamlined interaction between all units during work planning, better and faster decision-making, and effective emergency management.
Automated technical documentation management systems automatically register and retain technical documentation, thus accelerating creation, retrieval, receipt, review, and approval of operating, repair, and project documentation by 30%.
To increase production profitability,companies can consider Industrial IoT: fast technological data collection at minimal cost and without unnecessary networking expenses. The optimal IIoT platform can be selected for each energy facility.
Robotic Process Automation reduces human errors and the risks they entail, as well as improves the quality and speed of routine operations.
Drones monitor construction progress, search for and classify building and structure defects, and inspect sites and facilities.
Laboratory information systems help automate lab business processes, inject lab data into an enterprise-wide single information environment, and promptly provide intelligence to respective business units and supervisory authorities.
Industrial and occupational risks are managed by CROC's special-purpose solution combining advanced industrial safety management methodology and versatile software for regulation and rule compliance monitoring. The system can schedule safety audits, develop audit agendas (check lists), monitor audit results, develop a corrective and preventive measure plan, maintain employee profiles (photo, job position, licenses/certificates, competences, contacts, and violation statistics), evaluate risks, review ongoing work progress with the help of an energy facility map, automatically keep information about personnel training (form, frequency) and check licenses/certificates for "valid through" date.
Employee health can be monitored with the help of amedical terminal, with CROC's proprietary solution performing quick health checks via multiple parameters in any room without the need for medical professionals.
Innovative VR tools help employees practice technical skills, simulate emergences, and debrief accidents via thoroughly reconstructed circumstances and the recreated environment of a specific facility.
To manage data, customers can use a Data Lake that helps save money when it comes to storing huge volumes of data from multiple sources and then using them, for example, for prompt reporting and analytics.
Big Data solutions ensure highly accurate analysis of bulk unstructured data, including real-time data coming from SCADA systems. Big Data analytical core reveals non-obvious trends and regularities, which a company can then use to forecast equipment failures and identify factors impacting MRO quality.
Information security system protects mission-critical company data and prevents production network intrusion.
Information security system protects mission-critical company data and prevents production network intrusion.
Effective corporate learning, skill upgrade, and knowledge assessment are ensured byLearning Management Systems (LMS). The system is either used as a cloud service or deployed at a customer's site and allows for corporate online training, including the use of tabs, smartphones, etc.
Real-time geopositioning is used to identify employee locations and movement, provide monitoring within hazardous areas, and prevent accidents involving people or equipment.
Automated KPI management is all about personnel motivation simulation, collection of data from various IT systems to arrive at individual KPIs, and automation of any bonus and/or incentive schemes using KPIs and scores given by managers.
Chatbots and digital communication channels automate and improve in-company communications.
3D design systems are used to simulate civil and industrial facilities in a 3D environment.
Process mining is a driver of continuous improvement. Process mining solutions are employed to investigate and improve business processes and performance at organizations.
Speech recognition systems are used for minute taking. They can digitally record sessions, store records, and prepare text minutes.
Video analytic solutions check the use of personal protection gear, detect technology violations and unsafe behavior, control access, identify and track objects, record working time, and monitor events such as throwing objects over guarded perimeters.
Knowledge management systems are helpful in creating an actionable knowledge sharing model, accelerating R&D, upgrading employee skills, and organizing a single company-wide information environment.
Data and system integration is aimed at enabling real-time IT system interoperation to always have current information or perform complex operations. CROC offers turn-key development of integration solutions, from requirement gathering and design to implementation and continued maintenance.
Developing optimization models helps manage thermal power plant efficiency in real time. A thermal power plan imitation model, i.e. digital twin, allows for the simulation of real-life physical processes instead of using common equipment parameters. The solution can help reduce fuel usage by up to 10%.

A digital twin helps identify potential risks, integrate new technologies into existing production facilities, and speed up and reduce the cost of energy facility construction, upgrade, and renovation.

To run an energy facility without downtime, customers can employ a predictive diagnostics system. From information about past equipment malfunctions, the system simulates possible future malfunctions and calculates their probabilities. Integration with any ERP solutions is also supported.

To reduce equipment MRO costs, customers can use an Automated Smart Diagnostics System (ASDS) that diagnoses electric machines and motor-driven equipment during their operation, provides early detection of defects and forecasts degradation. The system also identifies deviations in operating modes of motor-driven equipment and supports integration with SCADA. All the above significantly improve equipment utilization ratios and reduce repair costs.
