EAM Assessment Methodology - Identifying Prioritized Opportunities For Asset Management Improvement

November 19, 2014 | 10:00 - 11:00 am CST

All industries are focused on improving asset reliability. This can only be achieved by having a high performance asset management program in place, with the ultimate goal of achieving enterprise asset management (EAM). The journey to achieve EAM starts with a detailed assessment of your organization's current maintenance and asset management performance. An EAM Assessment will provide the necessary gap analysis to understand your greatest opportunities and effectively prioritize them for closure, ultimately providing you the ability to advance towards enhanced asset reliability.

During this webinar an overview of the detailed processes behind an EAM Assessment and the value that it can bring to your organization will be covered. Examples of each of the seven elements of EAM will be shared, CMMS Functionality and Utilization, MRO Inventory Management, Metrics and Performance Improvement, Maintenance and Reliability Strategy, Organizational Readiness, Planning and Scheduling, and Work Management. The EAM Maturity Continuum will be defined and key steps in assessing the current state performance identified, thus setting the stage for the development of an EAM Master Plan which provides the roadmap for the necessary improvements required to positively impact business goals and objectives.
