How to Celebrate?

- Additionally, it is a perfect time to clean up your EAM system!
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 / assets?
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 / asset setup that have not been added in D365, for example, object criticalities, priorities, product and model? whats
