TORONTO, March 28 /CNW/ -- NRX, the market leader in Asset Information
Management (AIM) solutions, is pleased to announce that CONSOL Energy, the
largest producer of high-Btu bituminous coal in the United States, has
purchased an enterprise license for the NRX Asset Center and VIP solutions to
drive operational excellence across all CONSOL Energy's mines.
Mining operations and personnel face many challenges, such as accessing
mission critical asset information and spare parts. Errors in parts-
identification and ordering as well as excessive search times lead to
equipment downtime, which causes production and productivity losses. Another
major issue is keeping asset information current; equipment has to be modified
for different mining conditions, so machinery is often repaired and rebuilt
on-site or with local contractors. As a result, systems may not get updated
and a tremendous level of complexity is added to the management of change
(MOC) processes for asset information.
NRX Asset Center, an SAP-Endorsed Business Solution, will allow CONSOL
Energy to address these challenges by ensuring CONSOL's mining operations have
immediate access to asset information. Combined with VIP, an intuitive role-
based workspace, the right information can be deployed to the right person to
make the right decision. Mining operations as a whole will benefit from
improved asset visibility, and standardized maintenance work management, MRO
supply chain and MOC processes. The result is improved equipment uptime and
higher workforce productivity and morale.
"We are excited about CONSOL Energy's decision to deploy Asset Center and
VIP company-wide," said Paul Gray, CEO of NRX. "CONSOL Energy is a market
leading company that recognizes the strategic role of Asset Information
Management (AIM) in the creation of competitive advantage and the achievement
of its corporate objectives."
