Maintenance and Asset Management TimelineEnterprise asset management (EAM) programs aim to extend asset life, control costs, and meet service commitments. To achieve these goals, utilities need a system to manage maintenance activities, capture accurate data during daily business processes and work activities, and help them make better decisions about their critical infrastructure. However many agencies’ maintenance systems provide little more than an electronic way to manage work orders.

Service Objective

Successful lifecycle asset management programs use Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) as a bridge between asset strategies and maintenance practices. Policies are institutionalized in the CMMS and associated business processes while the system gathers data that is essential to making informed decisions. Westin helps utilities fully assess, select and implement their CMMS so they can:

  • Save time and money with consistent and streamlined work processes that leverage the system;
  • Prioritize and schedule preventive maintenance based on documented, accessible asset criticality;
  • Manage planned and unplanned work, age of open work orders, and workforce utilization;
  • Understand total asset lifecycle costs including value of maintenance work, materials, etc.;
  • Integrate their CMMS with other information systems to support asset management, CIP, and customer service goals;
  • Improve CIP planning, budgeting, condition assessments and short- and long-term replacement schedules; and
  • Support capacity modeling and growth planning to address CMOM and SSMP guidelines.

Westin’s staff applies a proven structure to help you plan a CMMS project in conjunction with your EAM program; acquire the appropriate system for your specific requirements, then fully implement the system throughout your organization.
