Tips On Asset Performance Management
Asset management is all about getting as much value as one can from the assets that the company owns.The term asset management refers to the ability to derive as much value as one can from the company assets. The main purpose is to decrease waste by making sure every resource is working at full capacity to meet their intended purpose. Case and point is carefully taking care of a machine so well such that it supersedes its expected lifetime or anticipating wear and tear effects in the production line and repairing them before they compromise production. Even as all these things happen asset performance management also try to figure out how things work and how they are supposed to work to give the highest level of performance. The role of asset managers is to analyze what the peak performance of various resources can be and notice when they are faulty so that repairs can be done.
Asset management has grown over the years and is one of the areas that has been affected by the internet of things (IIOT). This has resulted in more managers embracing various technologies to help them get more value from their resources. Technologies like deep data mining, machine learning systems, energy monitoring and RFID tagging have simplified the jobs of asset managers the world over.
Even though there are so many technologies that are available for use some of the changes that need to be effected for the best results are just minor changes that have a huge impact.
One of the key drivers of asset management is data that can be acted upon as soon as it arrives. One of the ways to be always getting actionable data is to set up systems that can get data at any time and convey it to any place. This can be done by setting up smart assets that can automatically collect data while they are in operation then transfer it to an analytics platform in the cloud that can process the data and extract valuable insights. Mobile devices can also be added to the process so that the floor manager has access to all this data at any time despite wherever he is. Such technology does not mean that the work life balance of employees will be infringed on.
Rather it just means that there is a responsible person that can action on the data and be able to contain, control or even avert a crises. This will also remove the need for managers to remain glued to their screen since there will be systems set up to alert and notify the manager in case anything is going wrong and even generate reports.
This also allows more free time for your employees because it removes them from being in a 24/7 work cycle state by creating a system that can catch and avert any potential disasters early enough.
