Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)

Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) and Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) support managing physical assets in the most efficient and productive manner in a business. While EAM/CMMS functionality has traditionally been associated with plant and equipment maintenance, today's systems provide capabilities to manage the entire life cycle of any asset, including design, specification, planning, operations, maintenance, monitoring, warranty and disposal. Most EAM/CMMS implementations focus on revenue producing or critical operational assets such as manufacturing plants, equipment, transportation, fleets, infrastructure, building, facilities, computer/data centers, etc. Business benefits include increased equipment & labor efficiency, reduced downtime, improved quality of service or product, decreased variability, better throughput and increased productivity. EAM solutions have recently started to include energy and emissions management capabilities.
