Manage your production equipment and general resources

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.

  • 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).

  • Alert in the event of budget overruns.
  • Help in setting budget priorities through advanced simulations (forecast the annual preventive burden, forecast equipment usage, etc.).

Real-time monitoring of activity

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

  • Immediate display, on the home screen, of the main operating indicators: 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.
