At Pragma, we believe in partnerships and our journey with PPC has been integral in our growth and improvement of our On Key offering.

Pieter van den Heever, PPC’s Mechanical Foreman, explains how the On Key system helps him with plant maintenance, job allocation, planning and scheduling on a daily basis. The planning and scheduling aspects assist with monthly activities and planning for shutdowns ahead of time.
In this video, we have a look at how the enterprise asset management system, On Key, development has assisted managers with their KPI’s such as cost control, high plant reliability, people and resource management, safety and continuous plant improvement.
Industry 4.0 has many advantages and different applications in different industries. For maintenance management, the On Key EAM system enables asset owners to create a digital twin to know precisely where their assets are, what type of assets they have and their asset value.
Industry 4.0 has the potential to bring equipment, infrastructure, technology and communities together and create an inclusive economy. Smart cities are one such example where more people will be connected to do business from their mobile devices and have access to infrastructure to produce and deliver their goods and services.
Industry 4.0 and job losses are often used in the same sentence. At Pragma, we are positive about the opportunities that Industry 4.0 poses for job creation. Past industrial revolutions created more jobs than it took away, and we believe Industry 4.0 will have the same positive effect on the labour market.
Currently the biggest challenges with Industry 4.0, relates to the costs of setting up the new infrastructure associated with it and fleshing out the requirements for a suitable and sustainable environment for the specific needs of a business.
Technology and enterprise asset management goes hand in hand and adds a competitive edge to any asset-intensive business. Technology has a huge impact on several areas of business, and this will become increasingly so.
