Managing Fixed Assets & Resources
Improving Regulatory Compliance
Phase-In Equipment You use this business process to maintain the entire master data required to perform effective maintenance on a piece of equipment. This includes the Equipment master record, Maintenance Plan, Measuring Point, Task List, Bill of Materials (BOMs) etc
Preventive Maintenance Preventive maintenance work is performed to ensure optimal operation of equipment & avoid costly unplanned equipment failure or shutdown. This work may be done for legal/ regulatory reasons, or due to environmental protection requirements. This type of maintenance may also be done to comply with manufacturer recommendations, or may be executed to ensure continued product quality.
Corrective Maintenance Maintenance actions carried out to restore a defective item to a specified condition
Work Clearance Management you use this business process to enforce all safety measures that must be carried out before inspections, repairs or preventive maintenance works are performed.
Dispatching / Scheduling You use this business process to schedule work orders and operations that have been planned but now need to be scheduled.

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Failure mode effects analysis: a process of tabulating the effects of a failure for a give possible failure mode (or cause) and deciding the mitigating action or task necessary to prevent the problem from occurring.
Refurbishment Processing You uses this business process to perform the refurbishment of equipment. The process is seamlessly integrated with the maintenance cycle. Technical assets (serialized equipment) are linked to the material master and can be managed in condition-based stocks. Any refurbishment activity performed influences the overall stock value of the material (equipment).
Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is a widely used methodology to determine maintenance requirements and define equipment strategies for maintainability and operational reliability
Phase-Out Equipment the process of deciding that a piece of equipment has reached the end of its useful and economic life and is subsequently phased out use.
Maintenance Cost Budgeting (MCB) You use this business process to build a budget for maintenance activities related to technical assets i.e. Functional Locations and/or Equipment. The budget can be either zero or history based
