A Resilient Enterprise with IFS Cloud EAM
As we’ve learned over the past few years, resilience to change is essential to the health and success of the enterprise. This principle extends across all business areas, including the assets we rely upon to keep the company running.
How we manage and maintain our enterprise assets directly impacts the company’s performance. Often overlooked and taken for granted, these components are essential building blocks to a successful business. Without them, there is no business.
Today, with technological advances, enterprise assets contribute beyond operational productivity, providing us with critical data-based insights that inform business decisions. These data serve more than just the bottom line, helping us develop a safer, greener, more sustainable operation.
This IFS paper examines advances in enterprise asset management (EAM) technology and how organizations are evolving their EAM strategies to become more efficient, profitable, and resilient in the face of change.

The Evolution of Asset Maintenance
With advances in technology, maintenance practices continue to evolve:
Managed visually and reactively. Assets run until they fail, then a fix is applied.
Preventive maintenance at pre-scheduled and fixed intervals.
Condition-based maintenance with sensors to monitor assets in real-time and send alerts.
Predictive maintenance to proactively improve asset performance.
Asset performance is actively managed for real-time optimization.
While this maintenance maturity roadmap is displayed linearly, the reality is that most organizations use a combination of practices across their operation.
