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 core purpose of asset management is to eliminate wastage by using lesser resources to achieve more. This can be indicated in various ways such as managing a machine so well so much that it exceeds its expected life time to anticipating mechanical degradation and promptly repairing them before they affect the production process. Another important aspect of asset management is trying to understand how various machine function and how they can be operated for peak performance. It falls on asset managers the duty to investigate the expected performance of various resources and being able to detect machines that are faulty early enough for repairs to 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. There are a couple of technological advancements that have permeated asset management and they include data mining, machine learning systems, energy monitoring and even RFID tagging.
Even in the midst of various complex technologies some of the changes that need to be effected for optimal asset management are quite simple and inexpensive.
Asset management has the most impact when information is acted on 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. One way to do this is to create a system that is always collecting data and relaying it to the cloud for analysis and making deductions. 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 this balance will be maintained since a responsible person will always have access to the data so that they can be able to contain, control or even avoid a potential 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 creates more free time for your employees because it eliminates the mentality that they are always on call in case something goes wrong because there is a system that can detect and even avert some disasters.
