Maintain, Repair And Operate With ‘Smart Mobility’

In collaboration with the AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre) in Sheffield, IBM has developed a smart MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) prototype for applications in high volume manufacturing operations. Utilising the Internet of Things concept, it's designed to support remote MRO activities enabling an engineer to get to the right place at the right time to do the right job.

A fully working IBM MRO system has been installed at the AMRC’s Diamond Jubilee Knowledge Transfer Centre.

In The Future
The expert’s ability to deliver critical information can also be further enhanced as the fully working prototype is adapted and integrated with a company’s specific MRO operations, asset management solutions such as IBM Maximo and Product Lifecycle Management systems. The ability to direct data to either the engineer’s mobile phone or the robot’s projector adds a further dimension to the system’s portability and flexibility.
