This ensures minimal downtime and maximum production. HoptiAM™ provides you with a proactive maintenance program that will minimize equipment downtime, loss of production, and missed shipments.

HoptiAM™ helps you plan, optimize, execute, and track maintenance and other management activities along with the priorities, people, materials, tools, and technical information associated with managing and maintaining your physical assets. HoptiAM™ was developed to provide an easy to use solution that can be quickly implemented in breweries of all sizes. An intuitive user interface with preloaded equipment and maintenance tasks and schedules specific to the brewing industry such as mashing tun maintenance, cleaning, grain mill maintenance, tank/vessel preservation, and boiler maintenance enables your staff to use HoptiAM™ with minimal training and upfront setup work.

HoptiAM™ also allows the user to create customized tasks and maintenance schedules to suit their specific needs. HoptiAM™ ensures your equipment will be kept in better condition through appropriate preventive maintenance and reduces the time required to perform that maintenance by providing intuitive maintenance instructions. You’ve invested a lot in your equipment, HoptiAM™ helps you protect that investment and spend more time making beer and less time thinking about maintenance.

Gain real-time status and insight into equipment performance.

Data is translated into actionable knowledge, enabling continuous improvement.

Asset Management

Downtime due to equipment failure is the last thing a craft brewery needs. Outside of time and money for cleanup and repairs, it is critical to avoid lost production time – which leads to unfulfilled orders, frustrated customers and lost revenue.

Your brewery depends on using the right products and performing planned maintenance (PM) at the correct intervals. The easiest way to maximize your output is to properly maintain your equipment so your operation runs efficiently. HoptiAM™ allows you to achieve this by automatically scheduling PM for your assets – listing the correct chemicals, parts, tools, and procedures for proper maintenance.

HoptiAM™ was created with the end user’s needs in mind, Designed from the ground up to be a flexible software package, ASI will work with you to tailor HoptiAM™ to your specific needs.

Safety within Brewery Maintenance

Breweries, like any production facility presents safety concerns for workers. Packaging machines, heated vessels, moving machinery, and forklifts each present unique safety hazards. Maintenance personnel and operators need to be aware of and how to mitigate hazards involved with maintenance activities.

Providing the maintenance technician with the proper Lock Out/Tag Out procedures prior to performing maintenance is critical. Identifying signage and location to be placed on the equipment while maintenance is being performed is also critical for operators to prevent injury to themselves or others. HoptiAM™ provides maintainers with the proper safety information they need for each piece of equipment.

Case Study

Canning machine at Big Storm Brewing
Manufacturer’s specifications for maintenance were followed.

Monitoring
Early in life cycle noticed rust seeping out of bearing housings and flanges. Machine began to run rough as time went on.

Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
Investigation led to removal and inspection of the bearings. Machine had standard shielded bearings (vs. double-sealed) installed in wash down locations.

Corrective Action
Prior to bearings failing they were strategically scheduled for replacement in between canning runs to keep the machine in operation and not miss orders.

Result
If the bearings had failed severe damage may have occurred to bearing seats resulting in extensive downtime and repairs. The bearings were upgraded with stainless steel double-sealed bearings, extensive repairs/downtime avoided.

Get Insight into Equipment Performance with Real-Time Status Updates

HoptiAM™ is a module-based system which can be tailored to your needs. HoptiAM™ modules include:

Asset Manager

The Asset Manager module identifies, defines and documents assets. With the Asset Manager, you can add assets and define attributes such as serial number, location, warranty, and vendor information. The Asset Manager allows you to group assets into physical and functional hierarchies and identify assets via QR code or RFID tags. The interface provides intelligent searches for quick access to a variety of lists and information about your assets. For spares, parts, and consumables, Asset Manager will track quantities on hand, establish reorder points, and identify vendor information.

Live Library

With the Live Library, all available maintenance and operating procedures and resource information are at the fingertips of any user in any location. Live Library stores, associates and classifies technical data associated with individual assets and provides an intuitive, searchable interface for easy access. Live Library also allows the user to print documents and add notes and comments to documents to promote knowledge sharing.

Task Developer

Develop the procedures and identify all of the resources needed to support your assets. Task Developer identifies resources needed to perform preventative and corrective maintenance tasks and groups these tasks into maintenance packages. The Task Developer can also generate electronic maintenance manuals, standard operating procedures (SOP) and emergency operating procedures (EOP). Revisions can be tracked and releases controlled. Task Developer also creates automated checklists for use with the OptiAM® mobile and FleetChek™ mobile applications.

Maintenance Optimizer

Optimize your maintenance schedule based on individual asset usage and environment to minimize downtime or cost. The Maintenance Optimizer provides a full featured work order management system to schedule, manage, execute and document maintenance workload. It also can schedule actions such as contract or warranty renewals, planned upgrades and set alert triggers to generate automated work orders based on inputs from inspections, PdM or equipment monitoring systems. The Maintenance Optimizer provides near real-time equipment status to other modules in OptiAM®

Software as a Service

Developed using the latest rich Internet application technology and standard data formats, the HoptiAM™ environment delivers an intuitive and consistent user experience across all major operating systems.
