In a perfect world, trains run on time, the pace of traffic is fast enough to get to work on time and roads don’t have glaring potholes to avoid. In that same perfect world, we’d also like our data to be clean, organized and manageable. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch of the imagination to also have picturesque data.
Zooming back to reality, the idea of having data that is organized and easy to visualize isn’t just a pipe-dream, it’s an important process that helps to upkeep business organization, strategy and accuracy. Visualizing EAM data isn’t a far-off look into the future, it’s a significant step that will help you to prepare your business for the road ahead.
So, what makes visualizing EAM data so special? Why do businesses across a multitude of industries swear by visualization as way to meet performance standards? Well firstly, its an incredibly important tool for the upkeep and prevention of data mismanagement. Along with Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), visualization allows users to identify data that is accurate and data that still needs to be cleansed in their businesses. By putting a pulse on your data, you are able to monitor what’s been handled and what still needs to be done. This allows future employees and contractors to also easily jump into tasks, rather than spending extra time catching up.
Furthermore, you are easily able to track areas of improvement and the overall accuracy of your data. By using visual reporting software, the assessment of what to tackle next becomes much simpler and resources can effectively and efficiently be directed to where they are needed most. It also prevents further inaccuracy and mismanagement down the line, as you are able to ensure that what you’ve worked on up until that point is error free.
Data visualization also helps you and your employers to interact with your data. By having hot-pointed diagrams attached to your BOMs, you can virtually match spare parts inventory with their respective machinery to ensure accuracy in stock, along with reducing errors in maintenance schedules and deadlines. If people are able to see the root cause of a problem, it’s much more likely that they’ll be able to fix it.
Finally, it reduces confusion that is often caused by miscommunication and misunderstanding. By displaying clear images for parts, and other key aspects of your data, issues can be addressed specifically and correctly, without the need to double check and clarify. This improves efficiency and increases wrench time ensuring employees are on the factory floor, rather than behind closed doors.
