Maintenance Execution

Maximize asset uptime and performance.

Your maintenance technicians can be productive anytime, anywhere, on any connected device.

In a perfect world, Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) for asset intensive industries like Utilities, Oil & Gas, Transportation, Pharmaceuticals, and Manufacturing would be straightforward.

  • ŸTechnicians would maintain assets to deliver peak performance 24/7 with only planned downtimes for required service intervals.
  • Workforces would have defined work orders, safety plans, and all other resources needed to perform their tasks.
  • Work schedules would provide efficient travel routes between assets, helping you achieve green priorities and reduce costs.
  • Spare parts and resources would be readily available, minimally redundant, sourced in a carbon-friendly manner, and kept in eco-friendly storage.
  • Technicians would use quality scheduling tools to keep a backlogs down, providing capacity for emergencies or corrective maintenance events.
  • Planners could report on all operations consistently and according to ISO 55000 and regulatory obligations.

World-Class Mobile Maintenance Execution is Possible Today

The challenge is achieving current industry-standard maintenance operations while understanding how innovations may impact your operations.

We’ve been working with customers using SAP EAM in asset-intensive industries for over 18 years. Many of our customers experience pain from approaching maintenance as “firefighting” rather than prevention.

Frequently, those clients haven’t realized the ROI from a previous workforce automation project. Reasons include:

  1. Was the project scope appropriate? Consulting with Rizing early to establish the nature and scope of your project will save time and effort later.
  2. Did the budget allow for full realization of standard capabilities? We prioritize getting the basics right. The foundations of your EAM strategy and system are the first step to long-term benefit realization.
  3. Was the workforce represented in the planning phase? Involving all key participants early in a project improves user adoption.
  4. Was the chosen solution significantly modified? Rizing adopts a “fit to standard” approach. Why? Because most asset intensive industries have one aim, to derive value from their assets while maintaining them safely and cost-effectively. The architecture of the SAP EAM platform achieves this goal, often requiring only a few amendments to meet standard and best working practices.

Rizing uses SAP EAM tools to increase asset management efficiency and decrease maintenance spending.
