ExxonMobil Research and Engineering
Meridium and ExxonMobil Research & Engineering (EMRE) have an agreement for Meridium to globally market and license EMRE’s enterprise equipment taxonomy. An equipment taxonomy is a structured classification of all significant equipment, equipment components and maintenance activities that may be found in a given facility. When used with Meridium’s asset performance management solutions, the taxonomy enables process operators to drive strategic change and lower operating costs through consistent data collection, measurements, and key performance indicators (KPIs), resulting in improved equipment reliability.
“We have recognized tremendous value from using a standard taxonomy for equipment classification and key performance indicators. Extending use of taxonomy to include Meridium’s enterprise reliability management solution allows companies worldwide to realize greater cost savings, productivity gains and improved reliability.” – Ben Markham, Engineering Vice President, ExxonMobil Research and Engineering

While Meridium solutions have long supported Microsoft technologies, the latest version of Meridium is developed on the Microsoft .Net platform and provides native support for SQL Server. Microsoft .NET is technology that supports the rapid development of software that connects information, people, systems, and devices through XML Web services. XML Web services enable software on computers and mobile devices to communicate with each other, both inside and outside a company's walls. By creating a standard way to connect disparate business systems, XML Web services are a natural solution to many integration challenges. Meridium's support for XML Web services enables customers to more economically connect Meridium with their other platforms, programming languages and applications.
