What is AIM?
AIM is easy-to-use predictive maintenance software for operators, reliability engineers, and maintenance managers, developed by the engineers of Analytical Solutions and Products.
Like AMADAS, AIM collects data from your analytical devices, and centralizes control over your equipment.
AIM is developed to be a future proof high-tech direction for maintenance control, though still being a low-cost solution in comparison to other systems.
AIM yields high gains in efficiency, predictive maintenance savings and increased availability.
Are you analytical devices giving you reliable, accurate and repeatable results?
You need to know the level of performance of your analyzer systems; are they giving you reliable, accurate and repeatable results? If not, operation of your analyzer systems could be compromised!
That is why ASaP has developed the Analyzer Information Module (AIM). AIM is the only predictive maintenance software with support for all brands of process analyzers used in the oil and gas and (petro)chemical industries.
AIM will bring you complete analyzer data overview, with clear dashboards, live tiles, and in-depth reports. Easily track your workflows, analytical devices, their measurements, their associated equipment, schedules, and documentation.
How can the AIM predictive maintenance software algorithms help you and your maintenance team?
With key predictive maintenance algorithms and analyzer data collection, AIM is able to provide operators, reliability engineers, and maintenance managers with detailed information and analyses on their analyzer systems so they can monitor and improve process control.
Through monitoring the performance of your analytical equipment, AIM can predict the exact moment to replace your maintenance sensitive parts. You will spot potential problems from miles away. By replacing parts on performance basis, rather than on time-based Intervals, you will make the most of your maintenance budget and see return on your investment.
The AIM predictive maintenance algorithms are designed to determine the condition of analytical equipment in order to estimate when maintenance should be planned and performed. This way promises cost savings over time-based preventive maintenance, because maintenance is performed only when necessary. It is regarded as condition-based maintenance carried out as suggested by estimations of the degradation state of analytical equipment, such as gas analyzers.
Together with your maintenance team you will make better informed decisions and improve your maintenance performance.
Which KPI’s can AIM predictive maintenance software make visible for you?
AIM monitors analyzer performance and provides a clear visualization of the data on Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) like:
- Performance: accuracy and repeatability
- Maintenance: corrective and preventive
- Availability: actual and historical data
- Validation: (manual/automatic) with statistical evaluation of results
- Calibration: info on gases and consumption
- Monitoring of equipment; ranging from simple transmitters to complex analyzers (GC’s)
What reports can I expect with AIM predictive maintenance software?
AIM features a fully integrated report generator to automate generation of common reports like alarm, state machine, I-chart, and QAL3 reports. You always will be able to make the best decision with your analyzer collected data ready to show to anyone.
How is the AIM-architecture designed?
AIM is built on modern technology that allows de-central deployment. And with scalability in mind, AIM is designed so it can virtually support any number of devices. From a maintenance workshop to a complete production plant. It uses standard protocols to allow easy integration. AIM is developed with its own protocol stack and allows integration with common industry protocols such as Modbus TCP/IP, Modbus RTU, Analog and Discrete Signals and OPC.
AIM comes pre-configured for your analytical equipment and is easy to implement within your own IT-environment.
No infrastructure available and still want to implement a predictive maintenance software and analyzer data collection tool? AIM is an independent stand-alone system, which can be integrated at any time!
What are the applications for predictive maintenance software?
AIM is designed for oil and gas and (petro)chemical industries. But since AIM’s design is based on common industry protocols, and works with any analytical device regardless of brand or model, AIM’s applications for AIM are endless. These applications are just a few amongst many. Because of AIM growing number of users these applications will be updated regularly.
Does AIM comply to the international standards?
Yes. AIM complies to international standards. Amongst others the STM D-6299 standard. The ASTM D-6299 norm is a standard practice for applying statistical quality assurance and control charting techniques to evaluate analytical measurement system performance. AIM predictive maintenance software covers information for the design and operation of a program to monitor and control ongoing stability and precision and bias performance of selected analytical measurement systems using a collection of generally accepted statistical quality control (SQC) procedures and tools.
Which other features can you expect in AIM?
- Scheduler, Schedule tasks (such as validations) from a single platform
- Document Store – Documents (drawings, manuals, certificates etc.) can be stored for each device, have everything at hand from a single location!
- Cylinder management, management of certificates, composition, expiry dates for all validation materials.
- User management
- Time synchronization
- Discovery of AIM devices and service
- Gas detection
- Sample systems
- LNG phase diagram

Does the predictive maintenance software AIM support your LNG samplers and vaporizers?
Yes. We have integrated full LNG sampler and vaporizer functionality within AIM predictive maintenance software. Operators can control the LNG sampler with one interface and have an overview of all information such as LNG vaporizer, LNG sampler, and gas analyzer performance. AIM has been developed in-house by the ASaP engineering team and can be implemented with any brand or type of LNG sampler, LNG vaporizer, and gas analyzer available in any system, new or retrofit!

Keep your head cool with our LNG products & services
Time is money! Every hour an LNG carrier can sail away earlier from a FSRU will have a significant positive financial impact. So it is important that a FSRU can always operate at its maximum flow rate to minimize transfer time.
AIM is easy to use predictive maintenance software and centralizes analyzer data collection for operators and reliability engineers similar to AMADAS to get insight into their measurement and analyzer equipment.
