Managing operating goals

Operating Goals Manager (OGM) facilitates maximizing asset reliability and safety while minimizing operating costs. Applying robust corporate knowledge to track performance against goals and constraints, OGM quickly identifies out-of-normal conditions, notifies the accountable people and uses captured experience to drive and sustain conformance.

How our OGM software works

OGM works by assessing the conformance of defined indicators against defined goals and constraints. It identifies events which are out-of-normal conditions and determines whether they constitute an instance of non-conformance. Non-conformance events are prioritized and the role(s) responsible for their resolution are notified to take action. Over time, OGM builds an organization-specific knowledge base to facilitate improved non-conformance resolution in the future.
