Asset Management 101
Whether you’re new to asset management or fully-immersed in a system, we’re intent on helping you answer all your questions.
Asset Management Overview
What is CMMS
CMMS stands for Computerized Maintenance Management information System.
Generally speaking, a CMMS is an asset management system that lets you define, track and maintain any asset or event.
What are the most common reasons to use a CMMS?
Cost management, planning, scheduling, and optimized operations management.
With the right CMMS, you can:
- Reduce costs
- Reduce downtime
- Do more with less
What does an asset management system do?
At the highest level, a CMMS allows you to know:
- What you own and/or what you are responsible for? (i.e. The maintenance and/or management thereof)
It also lets you identify the equipment required to run your operation (eg. types, models and number of tanks); track activity and maintenance; and optimize your usage.
- Where is it located?
-Where your equipment lives physically.
-If it moves around
-What is it connected to
-What are the associated components?
- What state is it in?
Determine the working condition - i.e. is it in-service vs out-or-service?
And what is required to move it into service?
