EAM systems allow asset-intensive companies to accurately keep track of equipment, work orders, maintenance plans, and purchases. Despite the benefits, utilizing EAM systems to their full potential can be a daunting task. Knowing what data to include is essential and can help you use your EAM system to its full potential. But just how much information should you be keeping track of?
The equipment makes, model, and serial number are the essential information that should be documented. This information is what maintenance planners and technicians need to determine what they are working with when planning or executing work orders. It is essential to keep track of this information to keep machines up and running.
You can take your EAM organization a step further. Connecting documentation, such as machine manuals and parts catalogues, to assets, can save time, saving money, and increasing your company’s wrench time. While initially setting this up can be tedious, connected documents allow planners and technicians to locate the information they need quickly. They also save technicians significant time and frustration in the future.
While it may seem like a small change, optimizations like this can save your company time and money while improving the employee experience by minimizing the time technicians have to spend looking for that one elusive file.
Accurate and up-to-date EAM data is crucial for asset-intensive businesses. Without the proper data, delays and downtime can result in lost revenue to the business. Having high-quality asset and maintenance master data will ensure that your company runs smoothly.
An EAM migration provides an excellent opportunity to make sure information is complete and up to date to ensure you get the most out of your new EAM. While migrating EAM data, you can add or modify existing data to meet the recommended basic asset data standard.
