OnPlan is set to feature at one of APAC’s largest asset management and maintenance events in Melbourne this month.
Over two days, the Mainstream conference exhibition will showcase the work management platform that’s digitising paper-based processes for sites across Australia, Canada and America.
OnPlan drives performance improvements and efficiencies by digitising asset management content like inspections, and workflow to identify, execute and close maintenance tasks in-field or at the asset.
“There are three major parts to OnPlan,” explains CEO Stuart Burckhardt from the Brisbane Head Office.
“The first part is our cloud-based builder, which develops digital versions of maintenance forms, checklists, work packs and operating instructions,” he said.
“OnPlan workflow and import tools are proven to make the digitisation of asset management content 60% faster.”
“The second is a work scheduler to link the digital content to CMMS or ERPs. This tool provides a visual summary of work progress in real-time integrates with SAP, JDE, Pronto and other work order systems”
“The third part of the solution is our user friendly mobile apps for asset maintainers. They present maintenance checklists and work instructions in a digital, easy-to-use format.”
“The OnPlan platform empowers engineers build digital content and workflow to control processes, mandate data entry, and automate predefined processes.”
“Meanwhile, the in-field technician has a nice, user-friendly interface to 3D imagery of equipment, overlaid with digital interactivity and equipment-specific instructions or checklists at the asset. The technician uses OnPlan to captures data and notifications infield to send to the CMMS or ERP,” he said.
“A lot of organisations tend to forget that documentation needs to be digitised to enable a lot of the “sexier”asset management projects, like mobility”.
The industry’s ferocious appetite for all things ‘digital’, ‘mobile’ and ‘integrated’ has placed significant pressure upon organisations to digitise work management processes and content. The task of converting tens of thousands of complex and equipment-specific documents, instructions, operational instructions, and checklists is a massive task.
“There also tends to be a lot of confusion on what digital actually is,” said Stuart. “Various tech companies are claiming to provide digital content, but ‘digital’ is not simply marking up a PDF on a screen; rather, it’s interactive, context-aware, and fully-integrated”.
With the right tools and methodology, the digitisation process can be fast and effective. As a result, companies reduce the risk of unplanned downtime generated by inefficient and error-prone processes that are directly related to paper-based processes.

Stuart Burckhardt talks about OnPlan digital work management software at Austmine 2021 in Perth, Western Australia. Topics covered include an overview of OnPlan, intended user group and the benefits of OnPlan to industrial asset owners.
Collaboration between engineering and maintenance to build asset strategies will improve asset performance and reduce risk.
“Working digitally” isn't just marking up a PDF on a screen instead of working with paper. Rather, “true” digital asset management documentation is interactive, context-aware, asset-centric, and integrated. To really gain the benefits of digital, content builders must think differently about how to prepare and present the content to end users.
