The Criticality of Proper Asset Walkdowns
Asset walkdowns are a foundational element of your facility's Master Asset List and the most critical building block of your Asset Reliability Program data. Asset walkdowns/asset verification establish the baseline for all Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) programs. Each organization must complete an asset walkdown in a manner that conforms to their EAM and Reliability Based Maintenance (RBM) programs. This procedure sets the foundation for future data consistency and program success, and importantly, it supports the future adoption of technologies including IoT and Asset Management.
