EAM Master Data Services

Master data and coding structures are the primary building blocks of the EAM software system. If they are poorly developed, EAM software will underperform. On the other hand, well-developed master data and coding structures drive quality information outputs and insightful analysis. Also, great master data makes the system easier to use. Better information and improved system ease of use are a result of standardized and classified master data.

SwainSmith offers comprehensive EAM master data development services, as well as an industry-leading library of rich and actionable coding structures, to help you maximize the value of your EAM software. Give your EAM software the foundation it needs with clean, complete, and accurate EAM master data and coding structures.

EAM Information Challenges

Every organization we work with has the same challenges:

  • Managers can’t get the information they need to run the operation.
  • Reports from the software system are unreliable.
  • Software is tough to use and deploy.

Organizations often blame software for these problems, but many times, the real culprit is bad master data and coding structures. Missing equipment or part records, duplicate entries, and inconsistent codes make it impossible to retrieve accurate, actionable information from the system.

Our Solution

We can help you solve your EAM information challenges. SwainSmith offers comprehensive equipment master and MRO material master creation, as well as an industry-leading library of rich and actionable coding structures. Our industry-proven EAM master data development services ensure that you get the full ROI from your EAM software system.

Our data models make EAM software systems perform.

EAM Equipment Master

A complete, accurate, structured equipment master (i.e., asset registry) is the starting point for collecting good work order transaction data and generating insightful performance analyses. Because it’s so fundamental, it’s important that you get it right. Bad equipment master data can wreak havoc with reporting, delay maintenance activities, and make it difficult to use the software system.

Swain Smith helps organizations develop best-in-class EAM equipment master tables. We bring deep domain expertise as well as industry-accepted data taxonomies, classification schemes, nomenclature standards, and hierarchy structures to every client engagement.

Service Scope

  • Equipment Walk-Down & Identification
  • Database Development, P&ID Association
  • Equipment Master Cleansing, Barcode Tagging
  • Bill of Materials Development
  • Criticality Assignment
  • PM / PdM Development

Take the headache out of data development by letting us help you develop a world-class EAM equipment master.

MRO Materials Master

A clean, reliable MRO material master (i.e., parts catalog) is critical to EAM software performance and the overall success of the asset management operation.

Bad MRO materials data can delay maintenance activities and drive MRO costs through the roof. A well-developed material master, on the other hand, creates value across the organization. It improves maintenance productivity by ensuring that critical parts are available when needed. It frees up working capital by enabling storeroom managers to eliminate duplicate and excess inventory. It enables smarter MRO procurement by giving buyers the data they need to negotiate contracts and reduce MRO costs.

Material Catalog Fade

Swain Smith helps organizations develop world-class material masters. We build catalogs you can count on.

Service Scope

  • Item Walk-Down & Identification
  • Database Development, Barcode Tagging
  • Nomenclature Standards Development
  • SMD Naming Conventions, Classification, and Commodity Structures
  • Cleaning, De-duping, Standardization and Enrichment
  • Storeroom Design and Materials Organization
  • Location Scheme Development

EAM Coding Structures

Coding structures are the engine that drives EAM system reporting and analysis. A distinctive set of coding structures also make it easier to use the system. Codes sort, group and report information, allowing asset management data to be parsed and rolled up. Establishing good coding structures is essential to EAM software performance.

SwainSmith helps organizations develop world-class EAM coding structures. We leverage our extensive coding library and deep knowledge of process and technology to deliver clear, thorough coding structures that are tailored to each client’s needs.

To facilitate client code development efforts we employ our custom-built library including over 1,300 proprietary codes, covering problem and failure, work order types, classification, equipment criticality, inventory management, procurement and much more.

Our distinctive and clearly defined coding sets are built on ISO 14224 standards, guaranteeing your company an industry-proven approach to enterprise asset management. That’s why some of the world’s leading manufacturing companies use our coding library in their operations.

Our EAM coding library jump-starts your software implementation process and provides the foundation for turning data into information.

Our EAM Coding Library

  • Equipment Codes – Groupings, Classification, Categories, Criticality
  • Reliability Codes – Problem, Failure, Cause, Action Failure Hierarchy
  • Work Management Codes – Observation, Work Order Types, Classes, Statuses, Priorities, How Found, Delay, Constraint, Transaction Flags, etc.
  • Material Codes – Commodities, Classification, UNSPSC
  • Materials Management Codes – Return to Stores, Return to Vendor, Inventory Discrepancy, etc.
  • Vendor Codes – Classes, Service, etc.
  • Procurement Codes – Purchase Order Types, Statuses, Vendor Performance, etc.
  • Accounting Coordination – Invoice Discrepancy, etc.
