Large organizations typically house a diverse portfolio of asset systems, each contributing to the overall goals of the organization but presenting widely different investments, performance challenges, and risks. The properly configured asset management system is the bridge which allows facility managers to coordinate and optimize work management activities, manage planned and unplanned activities, and evaluate capital expenditures versus operating the existing assets. When a facility employs the right EAM software system, they can establish maintenance best practices to maximize return on investment for all of their critical assets.
EAM systems allow facilities to transform from relying on planned maintenance for their assets to world class maintenance best practices that are part of a Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) program. A RCM program relies on the historical data housed in the EAM maintenance software system to identify and predict equipment failures and recommend pro-active activities that will reduce the number of failures and also extend the life of equipment.
