Unless it was built yesterday, almost every site has some level of obsolescence issue, the key to managing this is identifying exactly where it poses a risk to your business and implementing a strategy to mitigate the risk. While it may be desirable to replace all aging equipment it is usually cost prohibitive and not practical to do so. This is where our obsolescence management package comes in. HG are able to analyse your installed base and compile an obsolescence report which identifies all areas of risk. This information is then fed into our obsolescence management process which details action which can be taken to reduce these risks and plan for the future without unnecessary wholesale replacements. Our unique approach allows your business to operate with managed risks and an identified roadmap to bring you out of obsolescence at minimum cost. In the meantime, our support contract offering will ensure that the equipment that you do have is kept in operation. In today’s economy, we know how important it is to make the most of limited funding and how to get the best out of your current automation solution whilst managing the risk and understanding what your contingency arrangements are. We believe that this is one of the most effective ways in which your business can continue to perform well in a competitive market. Obsolescence management, combined with our asset management solutions, allow you to concentrate on your core business and serving your customers. We will advise, in detail, how to get the maximum lifespan out of your asset and ensure you maximise your return on investment without sacrificing uptime. The proposed strategy varies from plant to plant but will cover elements such as:- · Asset management of your entire installed base. · Audit of spares – recommendations on purchase or access to our spares service. · Identification of the systems which pose a threat to your business and cost-effective solutions to reduce the risk. · Programming skills – access to our highly skilled engineers – many of whom are supporting equipment older than themselves! · Maintenance of programming equipment to ensure support is available. · Care of your spares if required. · Full warranted repairs service. · Advice on and implementation of targeted migration to provide spares harvest for other systems.
