Russian miner & steel maker Metalloinvest has expanded the functionality of smart watches used at its enterprises since 2020 to improve the efficiency of the maintenance and repair system. The wearable devices updated jointly with the JSA Group specialists will provide real-time information transmission, more accurate positioning, and improve the quality of determining the types of work being carried out. Metalloinvest’s Production Assets Efficiency Department Head Ms Natalya Vinogradova said “In total, more than 8,000 working hours were monitored among 160 repair service employees at various sites. Thanks to the new capabilities, we will increase the speed of processing the collected data, ensure operational monitoring of the health of employees and provide timely assistance, if necessary, even in remote areas.”A pilot project on the use of wearable devices as one of the tools within the framework of a comprehensive program for the transformation of the maintenance and repair system was launched at the Mikhailovsky GOK in 2020. Then the smart watch arrived at other Metalloinvest plants Lebedinsky GOK and OEMK. The device was developed by the innovative company JSA Group OptimalFlow Group, which develops and implements advanced solutions for large businesses.The main goals of the MRO transformation program are to increase the technical readiness of equipment, optimize maintenance standards, increase the productivity of repair personnel, and optimize stocks.
