Asset Performance Technologies (APT), a leading developer of enterprise software for preventive maintenance (PM) optimization, announced the Task Optimization Engine(TM) module for its PRO-M v6.0 Economic Based Maintenance (EBM) software at the recent Society for Maintenance & Reliability Professionals (SMRP) annual meeting on October 24, 2005 in St. Louis, Missouri. The Task Optimization Engine(TM) provides a simple, one-button method to optimize PM tasks and intervals for high-end industrial equipment with regard to the current cycle of your business. The figure of merit is return on investment (ROI), so that informed maintenance spending decisions can be made. This new module gives PRO-M v6.0 unparalleled financial modeling capability for preventive maintenance (PM) in the industry. PRO-M can be used in conjunction with your existing Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) system to better understand how and why maintenance dollars are spent as well as their expected ROI. PRO-M v6.0 and the new module will also be featured at the upcoming International Maintenance Conference (IMC) on Dec. 6-9 in Tampa, Florida.

“We continue to hear from our clients that they are too busy and don’t have time for lengthy solutions. We developed the Task Optimization Engine(TM) to give plant and maintenance managers a tool with which they can quickly see the economic impact of their maintenance spending decisions with the simple click of a button,” says Glenn Hinchcliffe, Vice President of Client Services at APT and co-author of the book, RCM – Gateway to World Class Maintenance. “This unique functionality sets the trend for Economic Based Maintenance (EBM).”

APT’s products are currently in use in over 80 nuclear power generation facilities in the U.S. and Japan. To learn more about using PRO-M v6.0, please contact:
