Have you recently implemented an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) or Computerized Maintenance
Management Software (CMMS) System? Did you develop a “Return on Investment” justification for the
project, promising substantial improvements in asset perfonnance, reduced equipment downtime, lowered MRO inventory levels and decreased purchasing costs? Did you commit a large amount of money
and time to implementation? And are you still waiting for the savings to arrive and those promises to be fulfilled?
