NRX AssetHub for Building Maintenance BOMs

NRX AssetHub provides maintenance and reliability professionals at asset-intensive businesses with world class software solutions for analyzing, visualizing, building, editing, organizing, approving, and sustaining high-quality Asset and Maintenance Data for their EAM and CMMS systems. One of the ways our customers use NRX AssetHub is to save time and money by building maintenance BOMs (Bills of Materials) for maintaining their equipment.

Accurate Maintenance BOMs Save Money

Maintenance BOMs help to keep track of the spare parts that are required to maintain equipment. Without maintenance BOMs in the EAM system, no parts are associated with a piece of equipment. Consequently, every time maintenance is required, maintenance workers must figure out what parts are needed. To find this information, they must track down vendor maintenance documents and recommended spare parts lists and figure out what is needed. This wastes time and frequently results in duplicate parts being created in the EAM system. Each time maintenance is necessary, workers repeat this inefficient and costly process. When the time is taken to build BOMs properly, workers can quickly locate the required parts.

Business Benefits

  • Lower the cost of building BOMs

  • Quickly identify the correct parts to plan, schedule, and complete work orders

  • Easily monitor the progress of a maintenance BOM building project

  • Reduce the costs associated with duplicate parts

  • Improve the quality of existing BOMs

Build Maintenance BOMs Faster

We help our customers reduce the time it takes to build accurate BOMs by at least 50% by making the process visual.

Increase Wrench Time

We help out customers increase wrench time by 25% by making it easier and faster for maintenance workers to find information.

Lower the Cost of Building Maintenance BOMs

NRX AssetHub allows our customers to create, edit, visualize, review, and approve maintenance BOMs efficiently. Our solution is highly visual and allows for easy identification and selection of the parts required. Using NRX AssetHub, maintenance personnel copy and paste equipment and their associated maintenance objects (including BOMs), enabling them to reuse maintenance BOMs for identical or similar equipment. NRX AssetHub uses intelligence to suggest appropriate BOMs for given equipment based on certain characteristics. Using validation rules, our customers can ensure their corporate standards and naming conventions for BOMs and materials are adhered to by both employees and contractors.

Quickly Identify the Correct Parts to Plan, Schedule, and Complete Work Orders

By using BOMs in NRX AssetHub, maintenance personnel save time by easily identifying which parts are required to complete a work order. Using visual parts selection makes it easy for planners and workers to select the correct part. Our customers use NRX AssetHub to add an exploded parts diagram to a piece of equipment, and then create a hot-point link between a part in the diagram and its associated part in the BOM. From a work order, a maintenance worker can easily access BOMs, parts catalogs, and other equipment-related documentation and drawings. They can quickly select the correct parts and information for the work order. Maintenance workers can have confidence in the information that the work order supplies.

Easily Monitor the Progress of a BOM Building Project

Many asset-intensive companies use contractors to build out their BOM data in spreadsheets, and then try to load that data into an EAM system, sometimes unsuccessfully. Using the NRX AssetHub cloud-hosted solution, contractors can build BOMs efficiently, and companies can oversee, review, and report on their work on a continuous basis. This reduces service fees and ensures high-quality, timely deliverables. Companies can also elect to have contractors hot point exploded parts diagrams for visual parts selection and associate relevant vendor documentation for the equipment when they build the BOM. Validation in NRX AssetHub ensures the data will load successfully to an EAM system.

Reduce the Costs Associated with Duplicate Parts

When building maintenance BOMs, NRX AssetHub customers use a powerful search across all of the attributes of a material to find possible matches among existing parts in the EAM system. NRX AssetHub lists all parts that match the search criteria from the existing list of parts. Users can select the appropriate match, avoiding the creation of duplicate parts. Customers no longer need to perform multiple searches in their EAM system to find parts and avoid creating duplicates.

Improve the Quality of Existing Maintenance BOMs

Customers with existing BOMs use NRX AssetHub to locate similar equipment with different BOMs attached, and eliminate the duplication. When adding new equipment, they use NRX AssetHub to suggest existing BOMs, allowing them to reuse BOMs as applicable.
