Have new hires or new equipment installed and need to get your staff up to speed on the latest Rockwell Automation products? The industrial skills gap puts pressure on the manufacturing workforce like never before. The complexity of the operational and technical systems they must design, operate, and maintain also increases. Diverse skill sets are in demand to match the expanded roles and responsibilities of many positions. A generation of skilled workers is retiring, taking valuable tribal knowledge with them. Our Learning+ Training subscriptions combine the self-paced experience of e-learning with in-class collaboration with instructors, labs, and additional training content – all in a virtual environment. It provides the flexibility and convenience of learning when and where you need it most. Our training options help bridge the industrial skills gap for employees and employers alike.
Are you tasked with identifying critical spare parts for your facility? Do you require accurate lifecycle information on your aged equipment and know what is current, outdated, or obsolete? A Rockwell Automation Automation® Installed Base Evaluation (IBE) is a thorough analysis of your critical plant assets and their condition. An IBE service provides the knowledge needed to help you make data-driven decisions regarding your installed base assets’ support and obsolescence management. An Installed Base Evaluation can help you:
- Reduce costs by identifying and eliminating excess inventory, which can help improve Return on Net Assets (RONA).
- Increase uptime by ensuring critical spares are on-site to support production and maintenance.
- Identify and mitigate risks associated with supporting legacy equipment.
- Gain broader visibility into your plant assets reports and analytics, field services, and more, all in one integrated contract.
With an IBE, we can help you better understand and pinpoint your lifecycle risk by site, area, line, machine, and panel. By optimizing your Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO), we’ll help ensure you have the right parts, in the right place, at the right time. Imagine having all these services at your fingertips with ONLY ONE NUMBER TO CALL! All under one agreement! You have just one number to call when you need access to technical specialists quickly. By purchasing an Integrated Service Agreement from us, you get the best of both worlds – value and priority service.
