Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) is a computerized application that tracks the entire lifecycle of an asset including procurement, commissioning, operations, maintenance and decommissioning. An asset can be an infrastructure, facility, power plant, warehouse, building, stationary equipment, a fleet of moving assets, public utilities, transmission lines, water distribution lines, telecom towers etc.
EAM offers a holistic perspective looking at the asset lifecycle from different angles – capital allocation, running costs and total cost of ownership, project, process, performance, maintenance, risks, compliance, safety, and sustainability. EAM is an enterprise system and thus lays emphasis on a full-service solution, multi-site architecture, and integration with enterprise systems.
