AMRRI and GSI Join Forces to Advance Lubrication Management Systems

Advanced Machine Reliability Resources (AMRRI) and Generation Systems Inc. (GSI) are merging to create an offering that will support asset health and machine reliability for Fortune 1000 manufacturers.

The merger combines GSI's LUBE-IT management software with AMRRI's advanced capabilities in lubrication engineering, management and training. AMRRI has created proprietary methods for customizing the machine lubrication "care and feeding" plan based on machine criticality and working conditions. Those methods produce Reliability Centered Precision Lubrication work practices.

"Bringing together precision work practices development with a superior work management system is a hand-in-glove strategic fit," said Mike Johnson, founder of AMRRI and President of both companies. "We are just starting to realize the synergies that will provide new capabilities and cost-saving innovations to our customers. We are working on a host of advanced features that will greatly enhance work management capabilities."

"The unique design of the LUBE-IT system exceeds the capabilities of conventional CMMS programs for task management," said a spokesperson. "Each element of the machine lubrication plan represents a separately populated field. Fields are seamlessly combined to provide a management platform with a comprehensive yet flexible scheduling interface that organizes thousands of tasks within seconds of initiating a new weekly plan."

"We have a strategic initiative to build on our lubrication engineering functionality and add a healthy dose of lubricant-based condition monitoring expertise into a future web-based LUBE-IT version 6.0 SaaS application," Johnson said. "We see this platform as the innovation breakthrough that will bring daily essential machine care into the growing Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) vision and will revolutionize the way we leverage digital technology to manage and measure machine health."
