Productivity Development Solutions released the PDS Complex Mapping software module after a number of requests from sites that were finding it difficult to track assets with multiple wear surfaces.
PDS Complex Mapping allows for simple point and click data entry of multiple wear surfaces. This is vital for assets such as transfer chutes in operations where tracking wear in individual wear plates and tiles allows for accurate stock procurement and holding.
PDS Complex Mapping provides a clear wear history of assets which can highlight design issues and provide clear evidence to support re-engineering.
There are of course many assets that have multiple wear surfaces such as mobile machinery, crushers, feeders, truck bodies, wheel sets and many more. Regardless of the asset or industry, if there are multiple wear surfaces, the complex mapping tool will enable far better wear reporting.
When used for inspections, the PDS Complex Mapping module allows for easy tracking of complex assets such as screen media. Traditionally, navigating through inspections history has been difficult to achieve where there is a large number of individual related components within a single asset. Now with PDS Complex Mapping, screen condition can be captured allowing for better planning of maintenance activities. The PDS software also allows for tracking of rotable parts so that all inspection records can be retained. This is particularly useful for vibrating motors and other serviceable parts.
