APT Announces Release of PRO-M v9.0

PRO-M v9.0 is APT’s most advanced version of its maintenance optimization software.

Asset Performance Technologies, Inc. (APT) announced today that is has released version 9.0 of its PRO-M maintenance and reliability optimization software. PRO-M v9.0 has a variety of new features, most notably improvements to the user interface, import/export of data files, and an improved upload utility that supports equipment type version control. “PRO-M sets the standard for maintenance optimization by accurately predicting equipment failure rates and program ROI based on the maintenance program. Using PM Templates from the APT Asset Strategy Library(ASL) as a starting point, PRO-M calculates optimal maintenance plans to support the updated PAS55 specification with a few clicks of the mouse,” according to Mark Benak, CEO at APT.

PRO-M can quickly identify operational risks of equipment failures and inform the user of appropriate mitigation actions, saving significant time and money in the process. Optimal maintenance programs are achieved for a given plant’s financial and operating context by balancing equipment reliability with availability in what matters most, namely dollars – thereby aligning the interests of the Operations and Maintenance organizations in the plant.

APT continues to improve PRO-M’s predictive accuracy and optimization functions and has some exciting new features planned for future releases. According to David Worledge PhD, co-founder and chief scientist at APT, “We are concentrating our latest efforts on incorporating continuous monitoring and smart sensor strategies into PRO-M’s cost optimization algorithms. We are also continuing to rapidly add new equipment types to the ASL and are planning to migrate the library and software to a hosted and more scalable platform.”
