Shutdown maintenance can only be safely performed when equipment is not in use. This can be costly if maintenance requires prolonged closures and occurs during typical hours of operation. Additionally, planned shutdowns can be complex, impacting other parts of the operation and requiring several team members and engineers to be involved. Remote visual assistance technology is a solution helping manufacturers, and construction & engineering companies reduce equipment downtime during shutdown maintenance for equipment.
From initiation and planning through to evaluation, Help Lightning’s remote visual assistance technology enables the shutdown manager, planner, project engineers, shutdown coordinator and other safety specialists and inspectors to work together remotely from anywhere during all phases of the shutdown.
The Help Lightning app provides a merged video stream, augmented reality view for people on both sides of the screen. Whether on desktop or mobile, people on either side of the screen can virtually reach into the other person’s view for ‘hands-on’ maintenance collaboration that is as effective as in-person.
Remote visual assistance technology allows users to engage in a merged reality where both sides see the same view on their desktop or mobile device. For planned shutdown maintenance, teams can collaborate from anywhere to reduce equipment downtime more effectively.
Your experts have the ability to reach into the screen. To make annotations and drawings overlaid onto the shared view, and even include tools and parts in the view. All users experience this as if everyone were in the same room together.
With Help Lightning, the complex process of planned shutdown maintenance happens when it needs to, even if all required personnel cannot be physically onsite.
The ability to merge video screens and collaborate remotely enables efficient shutdown, even when key personnel cannot physically be onsite together. The entire maintenance team can work remotely to coordinate the shutdown.
Remote visual assistance technology supports several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for companies requiring planned shutdown maintenance.
Help Lightning helps teams reduce equipment downtime during shutdown maintenance. This helps teams to more easily coordinate maintenance schedules among all required personnel.
Several experts can be engaged at one time no matter where they are located. This allows them to work quickly to stay on schedule throughout all phases of the shutdown.
