Organizations that want to better understand the health of important assets, maximize asset life and increase overall efficiency should look into an asset management program. When considering options to optimize operations, technology is here to help.
Leveraging the connectivity of an integrated system of tools — such as infrared tools , vibration sensors and a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) — can help operations achieve MRO excellence. Integration provides a central storage location for the majority of data, information about your assets and real-time measurements to update managers on equipment operation.
Organizations should establish action-based maintenance in order to extend the life of assets. This will also reduce maintenance costs and improve operational efficiency. Extend the life of assets by:
Operations that establish action-based maintenance procedures with an asset management system can more easily predict issues within equipment and improve reliability by analyzing data. Asset management tools help organizations establish action-based maintenance by:
While it may not seem like a way to reduce costs, wirelessly connecting assets to a management system is a proven way to reduce costs. Workers in operations where data is automatically gathered from assets aren’t wandering operations taking measurements and can be working on active orders. Reduce maintenance costs and increase customer satisfaction by:
Focusing on asset management can improve asset life cycles and action-based maintenance, along with decreasing maintenance costs. Regardless of the industry, integrating systems of wireless tools or sensors and a CMMS will help organizations establish or strengthen asset management processes for any size of business.
