Services Designed to Ensure Your Plant is Operating Productively and Efficiently

 

We have developed a reputation in the industry for helping manufacturers identify and capitalize on opportunities for improved plant performance.

Installed Base Evaluations (IBE)*

 Agilix Solutions | Installed Based EvaluationsDoes your leadership team have a good handle on your organization’s industrial assets and controls?

If the answer to that question makes you a little uncomfortable, we get it. That’s precisely why many of our industrial customers have come to rely on Agilix Solutions for Installed Base Evaluation (IBE) services.

Our IBEs are designed to provide a comprehensive evaluation of your integrated production systems and the associated technology to arm you with analytics and unlock the insights you need to reduce downtime and maximize productivity. The IBE process is designed to help you easily answer these three critical questions:

  • Where are your drives, processors, and other system-critical electronic components located?
  • What age is your equipment, and is it at risk of obsolescence?
  • Do you have the parts on hand to properly maintain or replace your machines, and are those parts organized and ready if they’re needed?

If all of this seems a little overwhelming, you don’t have to take it on yourself. Our IBE Automation Audits have three predictable outcomes: First, you’ll be armed with the confidence that comes from truly understanding the condition of your systems and knowing your team will be ready when issues arise. You’ll also realize newfound efficiency, reducing your inventory to only the parts you need and eliminating unnecessary costs. Finally, you’ll reduce downtime. When you’re prepared for potential technology issues, nothing can catch you by surprise and they can be overcome quickly.

It’s time to feel good about your automated systems again. Agilix Solutions can help. Reach out to your Account Manager or contact our Asset Management Specialists today to get started.

Parts Management Agreements (PMAs)*

How do you define efficiency in your industrial operation?

For most, efficiency is realized by any measure that reduces downtime, minimizes inventory costs, simplifies budgeting, and creates more flexibility across the organization’s inventory management strategies. A Parts Management Agreement (PMA) with Agilix Solutions allows our customers to capitalize on all four of those efficiencies and more.

PMAs from Agilix Solutions are designed to ensure you have timely access to critical spare parts without needing to expend capital. Through our PMA offering, Agilix Solutions provides customers with a flexible, easy-to-use, vendor-managed inventory program that ensures your team has access to critical spares on site, when and where you need them. We own and manage your inventory as part of a fee-based program, so you don’t purchase the part until you need it.

 

Parts Management Agreements Are the Smartest Way to Manage Inventory

There are significant risks and liabilities associated with managing your own spare parts inventory. A PMA eliminates the biggest ones, because:

  • You don’t own any of the parts in your inventory and there is no required number of turns.
  • Your 1-year warranty starts the day the box is opened, not the day it’s purchased.
  • Spare parts for equipment that become obsolete from your installed base don’t need to be written off. PMA stock can be returned and next-generation parts can easily be added to the agreement.

 

Improve Efficiency Across the Board with a PMA from Agilix Solutions

This is asset control at its best. With a PMA, there’s no more balancing act between having the inventory you need and being stuck with parts you’ve purchased and will never use. With a PMA, you will:

  1. Avoid unnecessary buildup over time and meet your service facility requirements without increasing your assets.
  2. Improve cash management, by minimizing your inventory-carry expenses and paying for your inventory in smaller increments over time.
  3. Avoid being stuck holding the bag for parts to equipment that is no longer part of your installed base.

If efficiency matters to your operation, a Parts Management Agreement from Agilix Solutions can put you back in control. Start the journey toward smarter inventory management by contacting your Agilix Solutions Account Manager or reaching out to your nearest branch today!
