What is verticalization and how important is it when selecting an Enterprise Asset Management/Computerized Maintenance Management System (EAM/CMMS)? Are there any significant differences in the approaches taken by EAM/CMMS vendors in developing, marketing, and maintaining industry-specific solutions?
The evolution of asset management is gathering pace. Once restricted primarily to maintenance management and the repair of faulty equipment, modern day asset management is proactive and focused on achieving cost savings, improved profitability, better service levels and customer satisfaction, improved health, safety and environmental performance; and adherence with corporate and social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
Companies with plants, facilities, and equipment are now facing a daunting reality: Energy consumption is eroding profit margins. As rising energy costs continue to take a larger part of the operating and maintenance budget, corporate executives must focus on the challenge of managing energy use, as well as growing public and government concerns about carbon emissions and other pollutants.
Reliability programs are now standard business practice in companies that rely heavily on machines, equipment, and other physical assets. But, in today’s lean economy, companies have fewer resources than ever to manage and maintain these assets. They face challenges in identifying new and cost- effective ways to ensure that their assets are performing and that they are managing to minimize operational risks.
