A CMMS is best employed to identify areas and opportunities for improvement using baselines, benchmarking, and key performance indicators.

higher-level symptoms of a broader operational system or subsystem that, in turn, ties
up resources for repeat offenders.
Another key attribute of asset knowledge
is the asset's location and performance
history in the operational context of that
location. The CMMS may require that
it pinpoint where the scheduled work
should be performed for mobile/non-fixed
assets or, in the case of semi-fixed assets,
when changes in a functional location (for
example, a rebuilt motor may be moved
from one system to another within a plant)
occur. Asset-location data sources may be
a GPS or RFID technology platform that
digitally tracks and locates asset movement
and updates and stores this data-including
the movement history-in a table within
the CMMS, so that teams can view the data
away from desks and work stations.

INVENTORY PARTS
When considering the lowest level of the

management best practices in the CMMS
are key. We only know what parts to carry
or how to best manage an MRO stores
program with this asset knowledge base
included in the CMMS.
A CMMS becomes the definitive repository for Bills of Materials (BOMs) or MROparts associations for assets referenced in a
BOM. A properly configured CMMS allows
teams to quickly analyze data that provides statistics and trends in wearable part
performance for maintaining optimal asset
performance.

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
As a tool for tracking and improving individual asset-management plans, a CMMS
can include all work-execution management
processes, job plans, and resource requirements to sustain them and allow access for
any personnel. It can also help maintain
alignment with organizational strategies
that track and monitor the performance of
operational effectiveness, asset-throughput

performance and availability, and business
outcomes related a plant's overall operational performance.

ASSET PERFORMANCE AND TCO
Tracking asset performance, total cost of
ownership (TCO), and asset-value management reflects an essential competency in
successful capital planning. A CMMS is best
employed to identify areas and opportunities for improvement using baselines,
benchmarking, and key performance
indicators (KPIs). Asset managers are in a
prime position to take full advantage of the
abundance of structured data within a contextually configured CMMS. The software
can help them deliver:
 automated workflows of well-designed
work-execution-management processes
from any location
 continuous-improvement efforts and
vigilance within activities such as identifying and mitigating bad actors and
eliminating defects with the ability to move
