Asset data management software is crucial for asset-intensive companies, as operations become increasingly digitized. Some of the heavily dependent industries on EAM software include manufacturing, construction, and oil & gas, to name a few. Enterprise Asset Management software is the future for any and every asset-intensive business. Among HubHead’s customer base, we found SAP Plant Maintenance, SAP S4HANA PM, and IBM Maximo to be the most used asset management systems.
Asset-intensive companies rely heavily on BoMs for work orders and maintenance operations. The accuracy of your work order depends on having the correct parts and quickly identifying those parts. Time is money for every organization. Therefore, maintenance personnel do not need to be spending unnecessary extra time trying to locate equipment.
Data management is the heartbeat of every asset-intensive company. These companies spend billions of dollars on Enterprise Resource Planning, Enterprise Asset Management, and Computerized Maintenance Management systems to adhere to maintenance and reliability standards. Investing in the right tools and technology to manage your data is important but knowing how to apply those solutions to meet business demands effectively is just as important, if not more.
Spreadsheets are great for basic math, addition, subtraction, and what not. Now here is a newsflash: spreadsheets were not designed for creating or storing highly complex asset data. They also have little to no data integrity tools. Meaning that your data quality will likely be lower than what it would be in an asset management system.
Data will always be the heart of any and every asset-intensive business. Having a robust data foundation will be the first building block to ensure high-quality data. An in-depth, detailed perspective of your data is essential not just for maintenance personnel but also for all departments.
A significant aspect of building accurate BoMs is ensuring the spare parts data imported into the system is clean and organized. If this data is misnamed, missing specific elements, or just all around disorganized, chances are the quality of your final product will be compromised.
The key to effective asset and maintenance data management is accuracy. An EAM system can only do so much with poor quality data and the same applies to BoMs. BoMs can provide accurate material information in real time to ensure all parts are stocked and identifies which parts are needed to complete work orders.
Asset-intensive companies are heavily dependent on proper spare part management to ensure seamless operations alongside cost reduction. BoMs can be extremely useful for these companies when maintaining equipment and ordering spare parts. Some of the benefits include increased accuracy with work orders, reduced downtime, decreased duplication, and much more.
As discussed in our previous blog, every data migration comes with a fair amount of risks. We also mentioned some of the things that could go wrong: asset data loss, productivity loss, or an outright failure. The rising popularity of EAM and CMMS systems among...
SAP EAM systems help companies better manage complex data and business processes. While several organizations may use SAP software or SAP S4Hana to manage their asset data, your maintenance process before migrating into the system will determine how well your data will work for you.
