Tracing the origins – the importance of asset history

In our last blog post, we discussed how asset intelligence technology and item-level unique identification can improve visibility and traceability in an effort to combat counterfeiting in global supply chains. This week, in a related topic, we want to explore a lesser-known side of counterfeiting that requires an even more comprehensive, data driven approach.

Case study: Maritime inspection rounds and watch-keeping events

In our last blog, we described how data captured during asset inspections gives organisations a real-time window into their operations. Following on from there, we’d like to share an overview of a recent project we’ve undertaken for the Royal Australian Navy [RAN] which serves as a good demonstration of this.

Transforming inspection programs with enterprise asset intelligence

Organisations with mission-critical assets know that in order to make smart decisions about their operations they need a complete and accurate picture of the condition, state and history of all their assets, across the enterprise. Routine asset inspection programs and maintenance activities offer the ideal opportunity to capture this critical data. However, despite the proliferation of enterprise asset management systems [EAM’s] and computerised maintenance management systems [CMMS’s], many companies fall short when it comes to integrating this intelligence into strategic, tactical and operational decision making.

Rigorous risk-based assessments boost asset management

In our last blog post we introduced the concept of a unified platform for risk-based asset management with our new assetDNA-riskDNA ecosystem. This week, we’d like to pick up from where we left off with a closer examination of the risk assessment tools offered up by the system – specifically as they relate to the management of operational assets – and share an interesting anecdote about a real-world application.

Global EAM apps market to grow 6.45% per annum 2011-2015

Despite continuing market uncertainties, sales of enterprise asset management software applications are being driven by demand for enterprise-wide asset performance visibility says technology research company, TechNavio

Enterprise-wide visibility means more than just knowing what and where items are at certain points in time. Rather it means having deep, accurate and real-world insights into relationships, processes and trends that enable enterprises to make the kind of decisions that will shift their operations from reactive to predictive, even automated. However, with so much data dispersed across different systems, where does the journey start for business leaders needing visibility of their ‘things’ right across the enterprise?
