You’ve just set up your EAM/CMMS solution, and you’re ready to use it to help streamline your processes. However! You run into frustrations and challenges as you use your EAM/CMMS daily. Here’s a list of common challenges and frustrations SAP PM, IBM Maximo, or any enterprise assessment management software users experience. 

Difficulty Visualizing the Hierarchy

It can be difficult to visualize the asset hierarchy in most, if not all, of the popular EAM/CMMS solutions.  Some really don’t support the hierarchy concept very well.  Suppose you don’t already have a set standard. In that case, the lack of visualization becomes a big problem when you realize that different equipment are located in different areas of the hierarchy. Even if you have a set standard, you can’t view your asset hierarchy entirely to ensure everything is up to standard. This can lead to unknown errors in your hierarchy that make your entire asset register disorganized – which you don’t want because a disorganized asset hierarchy is not as useful as an organized one. 


Limitations with Editing 

Editing asset hierarchies in an EAM/CMMS solution is almost impossible. This is to be expected because EAM/CMMS solutions were not built and designed to visualize, review and edit. However, you want to be able to efficiently edit your asset hierarchy to ensure everything conforms to a standard. 


No Report Options

There is no easy way to get a report on your asset hierarchy from the asset register. EAM/CMMS solutions are not designed to visualize and generate reports from the master data in your EAM/CMMS. If you want to print a report on the conformance of your EAM master data to your standard of choice, you would have to go to your IT department to generate a report with programming, which can be inconvenient and time consuming.
