AiM: a completely customized, end-to-end, LOCAL solution for smart predictive maintenance

AiM factory-wide solutionHow valuable would it be to your production process, quotas and deadlines to know the health of your process equipment in real time? This is the promise that predictive maintenance (PdM) programs offer, but imagine the time and research you'd have to devote to coordinating multiple hardware and software vendors – especially a team that knows your business. Plus, trying to install and configure an IIoT monitoring system yourself, then interpreting and mitigating process equipment problems, is time-consuming, complicated, and risky as well.

The OTP family of companies has been providing process equipment and reliability solutions to the industrial sector for decades. And with several hundred years combined rotating equipment and certified repair expertise, we're uniquely qualified to deliver on a turnkey PdM solutions package that targets your specific application and equipment needs. AiM is our end-to-end technology and engineering support program that provides automated intelligence for maintenance teams, combined with proactive repair solutions that minimize unscheduled downtime — saving substantial money in lost productivity and escalated repair costs. And with OTP, you can count on ongoing operational integrity and superior service from a dedicated local team that builds knowledge and equity in your end-to-end process.

The market's only TRUE turnkey PdM solution.
AiM’s predictive maintenance technology and end-to-end pre-configured and programmed solution is unique in several ways. AiM Systems include EVERYTHING, from walking down a system to assess system needs, to custom configuring and programming individual units, to installation and MaaS (monitoring as a service). We can even handle any repair needs. No one else is offering the same degree of flexibility, customization or a solution this comprehensive – we do all the heavy lifting for you, saving labor time, expediting installation, operation and ensuring the programming and technology is trouble-free. Our turnkey program includes:
  • Hydraulic Institute-certified system assessment
  • System design with complete customization to suit your application(s), including component configuration and programming
  • On-site installation and testing
  • Cloud-based dashboard offering real-time data and historical data
  • High-speed wireless service or connection to your IT network**
  • 24/7 remote monitoring as a service (MaaS)
  • Data analysis to identify degrading trends to isolate the equipment before damage and avoidable costs occur
  • Periodic reporting and action plan recommendation
  • OEM-certified equipment maintenance/repair services
  • Equipment loaner or vendor-managed inventory solutions
How comprehensive is an AiM program?
AiM program differentiators


1.) Certified System Analysis: We’re certified in Level I, II+III pump systems assessment by the Hydraulic Institute + an AMP Certified Reliability Leader. We’ll spend time at your plant to assess your equipment against your productivity needs.

2.) Custom PdM System Design: We customize your AiM system to monitor for optimal performance of your specific equipment + application, integrating the industry’s most reliable technology for detecting deviation in vibration, temperature, pressure, AMPs + RPMs.

3.) PdM Equipment Programming: Monitoring nodes + CDS dashboard are programmed with tolerances + failure mode algorithms specific to your equipment, application, and depth/frequency of data reporting to ensure your highest productivity.

4.) On-Site Installation: Our team installs + tests the sensors, gateway, communication interface (cellular wireless, LAN or DXM connection) and data transmission. AiM best-in-class sensors can communicate with our gateway from up to 6 miles away. 

5.) 24/7 Monitoring as a Service3 (MaaS):  AiM’s 24/7 MaaS goes beyond flagging alerts. We monitor your data to identify degrading trends to isolate bad actors before damage/costs occur. The same team that engineers your system conducts MaaS, building equity in your process.

6.) Periodic Reporting + Analysis: Your AiM team can also provide reporting + expert analysis of your equipment’s health and recommend when + how to intervene to improve performance, maximize uptime and extend equipment life.

7.) PdM Alerts + Recommended Action Plan: Custom algorithms for performance deviation give you the ability to address potential bad actors in real time. As reliability engineers, your AiM team can devise an action plan that serves your productivity and budget objectives.

8.) OEM-certified Repair: AiM is part of the PP&S/OTP network, with two OEM-certified Reliability Centers in the Southeast. We also provide 24/7 field response. Since we don’t outsource your repair, you can count on quick turnaround, as well as technical excellence.

9.) Equipment Load + Inventory Programs: As part of the PP&S/OTP network, we can replace equipment + parts - many from inventory, provide loaner equipment, or design vendor-managed or consigned inventory programs to expedite remediation, minimize costs and maximize ROI.
