What is EAM software?
EAM software is the new kid on the block if stood next to CMMS, even though it is not new technology, and it sits in a mature market. EAM focuses on the maintenance of physical assets through the lifecycle of an asset. The main benefit is that true EAM relies on connectivity, which has emerged as a more powerful tool across business as technology has progressed. They are used in asset-intensive organisations. And designed for 100 or more users, often across multiple sites. Thissolutions allow you to manage all your physical assets across the enterprise within a unified, single source, connected solution. EAM systems offer a comprehensive and integrated approach to asset management, allowing you to track the entire asset lifecycle through to audit trails, fulfil safety management with compliance in mind, together with strong reporting & business intelligence capability.
What are the considerations when selecting CMMS or EAM?
There is a distinct line between when you should need a CMMS and when you should need a EAM system. Both can be scaled up, but versus a CMMS, an EAM can’t be scaled down. What is important for you and your business is to understand first, the vision for the next 5 – 10 years, it needs to involve input from different stakeholders and what they need or expect from their assets functionality and performance capabilities in the future. These can be driven by market conditions, capital investment opportunity, HSE compliance, and one of the most important factors which is often overlooked – knowledge retention.
A clear and obvious example that your business would want to invest in an EAM VS CMMS solution, is if it is asset intensive, you could have many production lines or own numerous operational equipment assets, fleet assets, medical technology assets, or structured building property facilities assets together with a desire to connect easily to ERP systems, HR systems and industry relevant performance applications would drive your choice to consider an EAM solution As this gives you the power to manage all these within one solution and across multiple sites in multiple countries.
