Watchman Reliability Portal v3.0, Azima DLIWeb-based dynamic dashboard

The Watchman Reliability Portal v3.0 provides direct access to dynamically updated machine- and business-level metrics.

This customizable benchmarking tool allows user-defined data aggregation to show information strategically vital to a company, whether it's unplanned downtime, compliance, or capital expenditures. From a single plant or across an enterprise, it displays KPIs with quick, meaningful snapshots paired with patterns and trends in maintenance activities that can positively or negatively impact operational objectives.
