Plant Maintenance: Did you Forget About the Data?

Posted by Denise Hamilton on March 31, 2020

Plant Maintenance_

I have spent my entire career working in the realm of “Plant Maintenance” systems: from homegrown systems, back in my old programming days, to SAP. The software that almost all major companies across multiple industries use. This I know as I have spent the last 22 years doing more SAP implementations than I can count. In all that time, there has always been one area that has really bugged me, and at times even caused me to upset a few people along the way.  I get on my soapbox and nag, scream (not literally) and jump up and down to call attention to the fact this should be the very first thing any company should start cleaning up. That area is DATA.  I cannot tell you how many times I have had to watch as companies spend millions of dollars on consulting firms to help guide them through all the steps, and there are hundreds of those, to get the “new” system up and running. Yet for some reason, they do not stop to really pay attention to the actual data that gets loaded into it. Especially when it come to the details of the equipment used to produce their product and the materials it takes to keep that equipment running.

Taking Costs Out of The Business

It can be said that perfectly managed fixed, physical, and capital assets are the backbone of success for asset-intensive industries. When organizations access data in systems that allow insight into the lifecycle of data (i.e., procure, maintain, repair, refurbish and retire) a critical path can be followed to assure the highest levels of supply chain efficiency, personnel, public safety, field productivity, inventory obsolescence and capital projects that are lower cost and risk. All these benefits translate to the bottom line of the Company’s bottom line.

”Once upon a time” when the most complicated engine was Materials Requirements Planning (MRP), and the most common planning tool was MS Excel. Many would say that things were much simpler back then, and they probably were. We were used to stock-outs and lots of stuff on sale because of the misalignment between supply and demand. Oh, yes – the good old days.
