WHAT IF YOU FAIL TO IMPLEMENT APPROPRIATE PROCESSES FOR YOUR PLANT AND MINE ASSETS?
How will your business be affected if you constantly have unplanned equipment and production downtime? Ax EAM can reduce or even eliminate these problems for you.
WHAT IS AX EAM?
Microsoft Dynamics Enterprise Asset Maintenance (EAM) software is used to plan and execute tasks in order to effectively and efficiently maintain enterprise operations. It optimises asset performance and manages the complete lifecycle of critical plant and mine assets. Any object (asset or components) can be attached to one or more planning sequences which forms the basis of a preventive maintenance plan.
More about advanced cost control
All costs, including labor, expenses and spare parts, for all assets, are tracked.
These will also be ‘timestamped’ which can provide an overview of the Total Cost of Assets (TCA). An overview of the TCA is available at component-, site-, production- and machine level.
EAM’s advanced cost control functionality also enables analyses of maintenance costs and allows for better decision making as to how to improve maintenance processes.
Analysis of improved maintenance processes could include:
- A view of maintenance spending, whether it is rising and whether you should increase your preventive maintenance initiatives
- A view as to whether some assets are too expensive to maintain, to the extent of evaluating retirement of those assets
- A view of the cost of production stops (including the primary reasons for those production stops)
Additionally, EAM also allows for downtime to be analysed. This includes the cost of downtime, which is key in continuously improving your business’ maintenance management.
More about integration
Ax EAM is built into Dynamics AX and Dynamics 365, you can expect seamless integration in to all standard Dynamics AX modules, including:
- Fixed Assets
This integration means that the maintenance department can focus on optimising maintenance processes, rather than focus on inventory, finance and purchasing processes.
- One database
- One reporting engine
- One security model
- One customization model
- One BI engine
EAM plant and mine asset lifecycle management includes:
Improved production performance
EAM allows you to focus on cost effective maintenance processes that continuously reduce equipment down time. You can now be in a position whereby you efficiently and effectively plan maintenance of your production equipment. This allows you to reduce the risk of machine downtime and unplanned production stops which ultimately leads to improved production performance and allows for accurate cost forecasting.
EAM enables you to focus on the key aspects of your asset management strategy, which includes:
- Maintenance Management
- Work Order Planning
- Spare Part Handling
- Advanced Cost Control
