Asset management can quickly spin out of control
When you don’t have a solid asset management plan or the tools that go along with it, you end up “shotgunning” your resources. Daily work is mostly about putting out fires. Asset information is missing. Your work backlog balloons. Capital plans become a shot in the dark. And worst of all, you feel completely lost about where to begin or how to set priorities.
Is your current asset management system helping?
Not only is there too much to do, but you probably don’t have a great CMMS/EAM to help you get it done. Many utilities are stuck on bespoke CMMS systems that are difficult to manage and heavily customized, which puts more burden on IT every time an update is released. Newer solutions might be on the cloud but they’re often too simple or single purpose.
Some systems are only good for managing your network assets; others don’t have built-in mobile or capital planning capabilities. Most systems are fine for managing work but they don’t help you figure out what your priorities need to be. And far too often, utilities have invested a lot of time and money in an asset management system nobody wants to use.
