What Is Managed Ultrasound?

Managed Ultrasound is a road map created by SDT to help customers on their journey to achieve a world-class program. It is the fastest path to realizing the remarkable returns that ultrasound technology offers.

Ultrasound solutions contribute significantly to asset condition management by providing insight into the health of assets, reducing energy waste and improving product quality.

A Partnership

SDT believes that the burden of success does not rest solely on your shoulders. Managed Ultrasound is a stress-free partnership through which we share the responsibility of implementing an ultrasound technology-based program with you.

The benefits of a world-class ultrasound program are well documented, and so are the barriers that threaten to derail your efforts. The triple threat to success is poor planning, inexperience and resistance to culture change. Managed Ultrasound helps you navigate all three and embrace reliability-centered maintenance.

Together, we create a strategy to implement and maintain your ultrasound solutions program for life. We are there every step of the way to ensure your success.

Achieving Asset Condition Management Success

Ultrasound technology must be a key element in your asset condition management strategy. It provides early detection of asset health issues and the opportunity for reliability-centered maintenance. Fully implemented programs reap the benefit of lower energy costs, leading to environmental sustainability.

The “Asset Management Practices, Investments, and Challenges” research report shows that 70 percent of companies polled felt an in-house asset management strategy suited them better than outsourcing, yet only 30 percent of those strategies succeed. Reliabilityweb.com cites lack of leadership as a leading cause of project failure.

A Managed Ultrasound program from SDT provides all of the benefits of ultrasound technology without the stress of maintaining assets and capital investments.
