CMMS/EAM Asset Data Solutions

Empowering Reliability and Maintenance Excellence through Comprehensive Asset Data

Asset data is one of the most critical building blocks of an effective Reliability Program. Drawing from decades of collective expertise, we recognize the common challenges faced by organizations in maintaining complete and accurate asset data. Outdated engineering drawings, inadequately executed Management of Change (MOC) processes, or incomplete data handovers from projects to operations often lead to outdated and fragmented master asset data.

What is CMMS/EAM Asset Data and why is it important?

CMMS/EAM master asset data encompasses a wide array of critical information, including equipment tags, appropriate equipment type classification, hierarchical structures, and detailed asset specifications. Master asset data serves as a foundational resource for asset management processes, enabling organizations to effectively track, manage, and optimize their assets throughout their operational lifecycle. By maintaining accurate and up-to-date master asset data, organizations can enhance decision-making, streamline maintenance activities, improve asset performance, and minimize downtime.
