Huhtamaki Links Pi to Mainsaver

Goodyear, AZ – October 14, 2020: Packaging giant Huhtamaki has linked Mainsaver, their Computerized Maintenance Management System to OSIsoft® Pi System Software.  While Mainsaver is used to manage corrective and preventive work orders, Pi is linked directly to the production equipment and can track runtime as well as all operational parameters.  The interface is intended to pass runtime data to Mainsaver to update the project PM dates based on machine usage.

In compliance with the recommendations of maintenance experts including SMRP (The Society for Maintenance and Reliability Professionals) this integration will generate the PM work when the manufacturer’s recommended usage interval is reached rather than a fixed calendar interval.  This helps to avoid unnecessary PM work and maintenance downtime.  The integration also eliminates the need to manually enter meter reading as Pi increments the meter when the machine is in motion.

 Mainsaver worked with RoviSys® Automation & Information Solutions to build the data bridge from on-premise servers to the Mainsaver application host in the Google Cloud Platform.  Checks and validations are in place to identify any anomalies in the data exchange before it may become a problem.
