Muir Data Systems has released its Sequoia CMMS, a new software product designed for Independent Service Providers (ISPs) performing blade maintenance work. The computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) simplifies the job of managing work orders from start to finish, saving time, improving accuracy, increasing accountability, and enhancing customer experience.
The system uses the latest mobile and web technology to facilitate an efficient, easy-to-use workflow that fits the way ISPs already do business. Technicians enter data using a tablet or smartphone in the field, with or without Internet access. The mobile application stores information until an internet connection is available, and then transfers the data to an online database. Work orders can be managed from any computer with an Internet connection, through a web browser interface. This platform enables field data review and automatic report generation, and includes a customer portal for report download. Historical work order data is easily accessible for both ISPs and their customers.
Muir Data Systems (MDS) is an independent dedicated wind software company that is passionate about providing software products that fit the wind industry and are easy to use, state of the art, and cost effective solutions to existing challenges. MDS provides Software as a Service (SaaS), so all software management, data storage, personnel training, and ongoing support is taken care of. MDS is in the process of adding additional subsystems to their platform so that maintenance of the gearbox, tower, nacelle, and other subsystems will be included in the same convenient software package.
MDS believes that its CMMS can ultimately help reduce the cost of wind energy by forecasting maintenance events with greater accuracy. Analytical tools will be added in future releases to facilitate cost-saving predictive maintenance. The ultimate goal is for the CMMS to provide a stream of data that is complimentary to SCADA and condition monitoring data, completing the full picture of turbine health.
