Structure you equipment

CARL Source Factory helps you to structure the knowledge database of your plants and infrastructures throughout their life cycle:

  • Multiple tree structures for your equipment: functional, location, technical, networks.
  • Graphical or geographic navigation: integration and interactivity with photos, .DWG diagrams, maps (GIS) and 3D digital models (BIM).
  • Visual representation of energy networks and utilities: immediate display of the consequences in the event of a failure occurring on a critical device.
  • Instant access to key information and to the e-record of devices: history of maintenance work, preventive plans, diagrams and drawings, risks, and precautions to be observed.

“Your industrial equipment and general resources are described via interactive tree structures, linked with graphical or geographical representation.”

Guarantee equipment uptime and personnel safety

CARL Source Factory helps you to guarantee a high level of equipment uptime and ensures team safety:

  • Take account of regulatory constraints and safety registers to facilitate legal compliance.
  • Preventive management aided by alerts (anticipation rules, date optimization, load simulation, etc.).
  • Compliant with the highest level of traceability constraints (21 CFR, PART 11 Electronic Signatures)
  • Analysis and assistance with troubleshooting by presenting possible solutions according to the symptoms and the identified causes of failure. These fault trees can be generated automatically according to the history of maintenance work or they can be added after carrying out FMEA studies.
  • Features dedicated to experts and production agents to improve the quality of the service provided: work requests, response monitoring, level 1 maintenance, work order follow-up.
  • Contributes to your TPM approach and to your production-tracking systems (MES platform).
  • Can manage safety aspects (ATEX, permits…) and field technician certifications

Track your service providers and manage your contracts

CARL Source Factory allows you to analyze and monitor your suppliers:

  • Manage purchases and stocks (purchasing contracts, supplier qualification and indicators, manufacturer lots, etc.).
  • Create a single item and service repository that includes the conditions negotiated in your contracts.
  • Import supplier catalogues and price updates.
  • Issue alert in the event of non-compliance with contractual obligations.
  • Quantified and objective elements to assess the performance of service providers.
  • Run checks to verify the actual presence of service providers.
  • Direct access to service providers verified as per the scope of current contracts.

Reconcile quality and budget control

With CARL Source Factory, you can ensure the operational worthiness of equipment while staying on budget:

  • Detailed cost breakdowns (asset purchases, service providers, design costs, etc.) with the management of approvals.
  • Manage subcontracting: a single repository system for contracts, alerts in the event of non-compliance with contractual obligations, objective indicators to assess service providers, alerts for active warranties to avoid unnecessary expenditure.
  • Alert in the event of budget overruns.
  • Help in setting budget priorities through advanced simulations (forecast the annual preventive burden, forecast equipment usage, etc.).

Manage your maintenance, new works and regulatory diagnostic activities in real time

CARL Source Factory provides the information you expect from a co-driver to make the right decisions:

  • Main operating indicators displayed immediately on the home screen: equipment currently down, requests pending, purchases to be validated, contracts to be renewed, etc.
  • Alerts in the event of an excessive occurrence of maintenance work for a given device (range of preventive measures suggested).
  • Optimized predictive maintenance based on data from the IoT platform dedicated to maintenance.
  • Standardised indicators in the form of tables and graphs.
  • Graphic themes on maps (GIS) or diagrams to facility the maintenance policy.
