Yes! You heard us, better maintenance BOMs will save your companies’ life. But what is a bill of material exactly? Well, in an EAM system, an equipment BOM captures spare part information for a piece of equipment. This information is used during maintenance to determine the correct spare parts to replace. In an asset intensive company, not only do you want better maintenance Bills of Materials to maintain your equipment, but it’s also highly important that you have accurate maintenance BOMs. Why? Because it’ll help you save money! When the time is taken to build BOMs properly, your maintenance personnel can quickly locate the required parts, which will ultimately increase wrench time too.
