Most large companies have already introduced a unified system of accounting for finances, more or less unified financial policy is being implemented (of course, taking into account the types of business and regional particularities). This policy is usually implemented using an ERP system.
However, accounting of production assets is often not automated, accounting policies at different enterprises of even the same holding company are sometimes different. So from the point of view of asset maintenance, it turns out, in fact, not one company, but several. Since each company provides information for a single ERP system, processing this non-standardized information can be difficult.
The EAM system helps to build a unified policy for managing production assets and to organize the transfer of unified data to ERP. This in turn makes it possible to optimize the costs of servicing assets.
EAM system helps to connect information systems of the level of production processes and the level of business processes of an enterprise.
The article “How to properly implement a system of asset management (EAM)” said how important it is to choose the right supplier of the system, what factors should be taken into account. But here the supplier is selected, the EAM system can be acquired, and then implemented. What methods should be followed? At present, there is no generally accepted, well-proven technique. EAM implementation methodologies from development companies are corporate and private. And it’s not a fact that for a particular enterprise, it is the EAM system supplier methodology that is most effective. Therefore, even before the acquisition of the system, it is desirable for the management of the enterprise to decide on the method by which the system will be implemented, how much it is labor-intensive, and how long it will take. It largely depends on the state of the existing, non-automated system for managing fixed assets. Often at the enterprise are absent:
When developing a project to implement the EAM system, in many cases it is advisable to provide for the phased implementation of work. First, methods are implemented that do not require the use of historical data or any new indicators of the state of the equipment, the input of which is difficult due to the lack of diagnostic devices and reasonable levels of setting parameters. Moreover, already at the early stages of the project implementation, it is necessary to lay down requirements for entering the necessary information on equipment so that later more efficient MRO methods (in particular, predictive maintenance) can be applied.
As a result of the introduction of EAM-systems, the following basic tasks are solved at the first stage:
With the accumulation of statistical information obtained in the course of solving basic tasks, the EAM system allows you to carry out strategic planning of repairs with increasing accuracy and solve higher level tasks:
Maintenance and repair (MRO) affects many production and management departments of the enterprise. Therefore, in the planning process, attention should be paid to the comprehensive coordination of their activities. The first steps in this direction involve the creation of a…
