EAM as part of the project and design
Enterprise Asset Management or EAM is for many a business critical process where safety, availability and cost are the focus for maximum profitability.
In many projects maintenance planning and preparation begins as the plant becomes operational. Our experience shows that there are huge profits to include the maintenance aspect in design, construction and commissioning. The asset maintainability should be considered in the project’s early phases and maintenance should be specified in an early stage before the plant is commissioned. The goal is as quickly as possible to achieve the planned performance and fault-free operation. All aspects of plant information shall be made available for maintenance and the operation in relation with the start of operation.
Equipemnt data and descriptions with documentation is the basis for effective maintenance.
During a project, many documents is created describing the entire plant all systems with object functions, technical components, equipment dependences and relations, specified in asset structures in Ides MasterConcept. The information is the basis for an effective maintenance and should in the early stages be made available for the maintenance and operation through the EAM area in MasterConcept where all PM and Workorder is mangeed. With Ides MasterConcept information and EAM sharing is handled during all phases of a project. MasterConcept can also transfer asset data and documentation to the asset owner’s operation and maintenance systems.
