Data Standards
Lead to Project Success

Acquiring and
entering asset
data into EAM
and CMMS
systems prior to
project startup will help
assure proper
equipment
performance
and extend life
cycles.

For organizations to
prepare for IIoT advances,
particularly to move from
predictive to prescriptive
maintenance, they need
clear data-acquisition standards for sensors, devices,
and assets.

ASSETS BEGIN TO degrade as soon as they are in
operation. If the documentation for those assets is lost in
a storage room collecting dust, equipment may not receive
the level of maintenance that it truly needs. This lack of
maintenance is compounded when the enterprise-asset-management systems (EAM) and computerized-maintenance-management software (CMMS) systems aren't
updated during project implementation. Without detailed
asset data, maintenance technicians don't have immediate
access to essential information.
As technicians become more and more frustrated with
the state of the plant due to their lack of access to vital operations and maintenance (O&M) or Industrial Internet of
Things (IIoT) sensor data, and as equipment degrades due
to improper maintenance and lack of monitoring, assets
begin to fail, resulting in plant downtime and increased
safety risk.
With today's sophisticated IIoT environment, we
install all types of sensors on our assets for safety, proper
operation, or to tell us when maintenance is needed. But
those sensors simply just send, in most cases, a 4- to-20mA signal to the distributed-control system. Without the
documentation to turn that signal into an alarm or trendable machine data, it's just a 4- to-20-mA signal with no
real value. For organizations to prepare for IIoT advances,
including remote monitoring, cloud analytics, and eventually to move from predictive to prescriptive maintenance,
they need clear data-acquisition standards for sensors, devices, and assets that will enable them to capture and then
share the data. Preparing for IIoT technologies tomorrow
starts with data decisions organizations make today.

BETTER DATA, BETTER PROJECTS
Failure to expedite and organize data acquisition is not
only harmful to future plant operations, but can also increase risk to the execution of current projects. If technical
data is not delivered until late in a project, assets cannot be
