Efficient planning and safe execution of plant shutdowns with COMOS Shutdown.
For some industries the complete shutdown of a plant is necessary in order to allow all components to be properly checked and serviced. This requires detailed and comprehensive shutdownplanning, because each day without production entails very high costs.
Complete shutdown cycle in onesystem
A uniform database enables improved communication
Optimized planning for effectively used resources
Integration with other COMOS solutions increases efficiency
Detailed evaluation of prior events helps optimize future shutdowns
Design and functions
Based on COMOS MRO, COMOS Shutdown supports the critical shutdown planning phase with numerous functions and controls the coordination required between the individual disciplines and departments. All areas of responsibility, such as estimating, scheduling, coordination, progress assessment, reporting and many more, are all executing on one system. Complete integration of all disciples and departments involved into the system makes consistent data from the previous planning as well as from operation and maintenance available to all users at any time. In addition to optimal communication, this also guarantees the precision and safety of the shutdown planning. COMOS MRO furthermore makes analysis and post-processing of the shutdown possible. In this way, future shutdowns clearly benefit from the detailed evaluation of previous planning processes.
To ensure the secure operation of a plant or machine it is also necessary to take suitable preventive action (e.g. cell protection concept) and to integrate the automation and drive components into a state-of-the-art holistic industrial security concept for the entire plant or machine. Any third-party products that may be in use must also be taken into account.
