The Challenge

Business processes drive quality EAM transactional data (i.e., work orders, MRO material usage, etc.). Without well-defined, documented business processes, EAM data and analysis will suffer. Maintenance is left using an EAM system that is not delivering the right information.

The Solution

Our Enterprise Asset Management Playbook delivers documented, easily customizable, industry-proven ISO 55000-compliant practices, processes, and procedures to help you quickly establish enterprise asset management best practices.
