Oracle EAM software: Major features and a look at reviews
Oracle EAM is a straightforward, highly-effective tool that can host a wealth of detailed information which can be collated for precision reporting, such as nameplate data, engineering specifications or a parts list. In doing so, this software program enables users to effectively determine optimal asset levels for peak performance.
Major features of Oracle EAM
Oracle EAM goes beyond just asset management. It also features supportive tools that streamline your operations, removing paperwork and clutter to provide an enhanced level of service within every department. Below is a summary of this program’s major features.
- Preventative Maintenance and Condition-Based Maintenance – Through the use of templates, the Oracle EAM system stores asset attributes and asset-related information, including activities, meters and preventive maintenance schedules, and then associates them with easily manageable asset groups. Users love the automated response of this aspect of the platform, with information from the templates used to define the asset and its related information without the need for manual intervention. In addition, the repository where all data is collated provides a single, consistent view of an asset regardless of its location or status.
- Work Orders and Work Management – By far one of the most useful aspects of the program, work orders with Oracle EAM are practically effortless, incorporating all planning, scheduling and execution of work into a single unified system. Oracle EAM also includes a user-defined work order status that provides flexibility in the tracking and managing of work orders. Work management can include the identification of labor, material and equipment, a design that also helps you quickly identify the parts necessary for each job, including cost estimate calculation and material shortage checks. Plus, similar to other user-friendly aspects of the system, work orders can automatically be generated using preventive maintenance scheduling.
Oracle EAM reviews
According to one reviewer (a resources and building products company), the Oracle system has been integrated across four major divisions throughout locations in all states and national territories. Encompassing 40 businesses and over 270 users, this CMMS program “provides an integrated and scalable maintenance improvement platform. With the business now using consistent maintenance information, national divisional maintenance groups are now able to identify, target and trend true savings.” The review went on to say that the company had fully integrated the Oracle EAM CMMS into their financial system, integrating “purchasing, inventory, projects and general ledger” data.
