ABB, the leading power and automation technology company, announced the release of the ABB Reliability Fingerprint, a new consulting service from ABB reliability services.

The Fingerprint is a two-week assessment focused on improving site productivity, reliability practices and maintenance costs. The service identifies and documents opportunities for enhancing overall equipment effectiveness, maintenance performance and reliability culture. Data is collected on-site in the first week, followed by offsite analysis and reporting. The site is benchmarked against leading process industry and manufacturing sites, using ABB’s world-class Reliability® best practices database.

“With the collected information, we can identify opportunities for improvement. It allows the plant to better quantify the financial contribution maintenance is making,” said Andy Ginder, vice president, ABB reliability consulting. “We also show clients how their site compares to the world’s best operating plants and industry leaders. It is a low cost, focused service that quickly provides a return on the $20,000 – $30,000 investment.”

The ABB Reliability Fingerprint service is available for process and discrete manufacturing industries.
