EAM Cleaning: Time to get Organized!

 

Summer vacation is approaching and it is time to clean up your EAM system so you can peacefully enjoy your holiday! Below you can find some tips about where to look into.

 

Preventive Maintenance

* Objects.

Walk through your object list to ensure it's up-to-date:

1. Have new equipment been installed?

2. Do you have equipment that is no longer in use, and perhaps needs to be removed from your EAM installation?

3. Do you need to update documentation related to objects? 

4. Is all product-related information up to date, for example, product-model, serial number, specifications?

5. Review the object BOM: keep track of whether specific spare parts are often replaced.

6. Have you introduced changes in object setup that have not been added in D365, for example, object criticalities, priorities, product and model? 

* Work Orders

7. It's time to clean up your list of work orders, making sure it's relevant and reflects reality.


8. Do you have routine tasks that should be recorded as work orders?


9. Do you have work orders that are not needed anymore? Perhaps they should be removed?


10. What about work order checklists? Maybe it's time to update/add them? 


11. Clean up your work order pools. Are all related work orders relevant and updated to the correct stage?


12. Do staff changes require updates in the setup of workers and worker groups?

* Requests

13. Clean up your list of requests – some may be obsolete, and maybe some should be converted to work orders?
