Abstract:

Maintenance tag-out is a procedure that is part of many maintenance actions that happen daily whether onboard a ship in a maintenance depot or even a manufacturing environment. Typically, this is a manual and paper-based task that consumes considerable time and effort. Our vision is to create a modular software solution with three major areas of functionality. These are 1) the determination of the need for tag-out; 2) support of the tag-out process; and 3) automatic isolation. Together these will enable users to quickly and safely tag-out systems or components. Based on our open architecture and modular approach, it can be the first step along the path to an increasingly automated process The solution will include the capability to build performance models and do time-based studies in order to isolate best practices and optimized tag-out schemes and configurations. Over time, this will lead to an even greater reduction in MTTR.
