Value Map Assessment

See Where You Stand to Know How to Move Forward

Getting your EAM initiative rolling takes a ton of planning. But how do you determine what goals to set, timelines to aim for, or even standards to measure against? You’re talking about establishing best practices.

That’s where our Value Map Assessment (VMA) comes in. A VMA measures your EAM operation against proven industry best practices. It not only paints a clear picture of what you’ve done, it reveals areas where you can create tangible results and sets standards for achieving them.

Quality Data Manager

Keep Your Data Clean

Develop clean, standardized, and structured MRO materials data with our web-based Quality Data Manager (QDM). QDM collects and normalizes your MRO data making it easier to identify indirect materials, such as pipes, valves, seals, bearings, etc., and create your own high-performance MRO material master.

QDM also houses the Noun-Modifier-Attribute (NMA) Dictionary. This cataloging methodology is the international standard for describing industrial MRO parts and supplies, and it’s completely customizable.
