Foundational Data: The Pulling Guard
of Asset Management

Discover Why Data is the Key for Your Asset Management Strategy

Organizations are looking to implement bold and exciting solutions to streamline their maintenance operations. The industrial internet of things (IIoT), digital twins, and APM 4.0 are the latest in a long line of maintenance buzzwords. Many companies, however, often ignore the very thing that will fuel these future maintenance strategies: data.

Foundational data includes everything from asset naming conventions in your CMMS/EAM to failure codes or asset criticality. It isn’t the latest buzzword, but data is the foundation for any asset performance management framework.

In this session, we’ll explore the definition of foundational data, why it’s critical for your CMMS or EAM, and how standardization will help develop a strategic APM framework.

Discover how simple changes to your data strategy will drastically reduce maintenance costs and boost savings.

It isn’t shiny or a “buzzword”, but standardized data is critical for your CMMS success and asset strategy as a whole. We’ll define what foundational data is and explore industry best practices.

Without a practical data strategy, organizations won’t be able to identify gaps or measure data against an established standard. Lack of standards with asset naming can cause duplicates in your system and resort in inaccurate reporting.

We’ll explore how to standardize your data to promote consistency and repeatability. Establishing a plant/enterprise wide data rule set will ensure that all data captured in the CMMS is standardized.

Discover how companies have been affected and handled their data issues. Learn how one company had hidden costs of $7.68 million annually due to erroneous work orders.

Asset Management Council (AMC) is the council for each site that finalizes all decisions regarding data organization and strategy. Learn why it’s important to organize your own AMC and how it can help to standardize your operations.
