With the true integration of People, Processes, and Technology, enterprises will be able to focus on the core business, maximizing production.
What is OpreX Managed Service?
Running a plant on maximum and sustainable performance is a challenge for many companies. In many cases of a shutdown or slowdown, the information that the plant performance is at risk was already available but unfortunately not used. One of the major common factors is that somewhere there is a disconnection between People, Processes, and Technology.

How It Works: Integration
Analysis tools turn data into valuable information using maintenance dashboards and development services. They are designed to optimize operations using proactive maintenance techniques through a digital service platform that brings together people, process, and technology. Fully integrated dashboards identify which processes are not compliant or trending in the correct direction, and simultaneously show which maintenance actions should be performed. The ultimate objective is to eliminate 100 percent of the risk, but there will invariably be trade-offs calling for a balance between maximizing production and effective maintenance. The system’s analytical tools help optimize these choices.
The benefits of a comprehensive program to digitalize asset and maintenance management are easy to visualize, but for most companies, implementing something on this scale using internal resources alone simply is not possible. For those who want to build toward these types of operations, managed services can fill the gap.
Architecture and Technology
OpreX Managed Service is provided based on the advanced digitalization Managed Service Suite (MSS) platform technologies, consisting of two components, center component, and site component. The MSS center component is designed to be interconnected with multiple sites and connected directly or via VPN, depending on the situation.
The dashboard allows checking the health of a wide range of assets at a glance, including control systems (OT), information systems (IT), networks, and security, allowing to accurately grasp the status of the customer’s plant even from remote locations. Customer can create their own dashboard, providing a UX that meets their needs.
24/7 monitoring available by NOC (Network Operation Center). In preparation for increasingly sophisticated security threats, it will be detected promptly in the unlikely event of an incident, and prompt response will be made toward early convergence of the situation.
By the introduction of the ITSM (IT Service Management) ticketing system and the monitoring by the Network Operation Center, Yokogawa can quickly notice when the incident occurs. It is also possible to contact the customer from Yokogawa side quickly and start troubleshooting, having an extra pair of eyes on the status of the customer’s plant.
