A better approach to asset management.
The standard playbook for asset management is broken. SwainSmith takes a different approach — one that addresses all of the variables needed to access rich, actionable EAM information.
Tracy Smith is a veteran asset management developer, strategist, and consultant. He is the president of SwainSmith, a leading asset management consulting firm, and has 20 years of experience building and improving asset management systems for some of the world’s largest manufacturing organizations.
As a consultant, his work spans the asset management value chain, including engineering, operations, maintenance, MRO materials management, purchasing, and accounting.
Tracy is a member of the Institute of Asset Management (IAM) and an active participant in the US Technical Advisory Group that helped develop ISO 55000. He has also delivered PAS 55 auditing and accreditation services as a certified Endorsed Assessor (EA) of PAS 55 and is a Certified Maintenance and Reliability Professional (CMRP). His educational background includes an MBA from Clemson University and a BS from the University of South Carolina / David Lipscomb University.
Tracy’s deep domain experience in asset management, coupled with his extensive knowledge of international standards (including PAS 55, ISO 14224, ISO 55000, and ISO 17021) make him a valuable resource and ally for asset-intensive companies. He is an expert at increasing reliability, reducing risk, and minimizing costs through improved asset management operations. He speaks, thinks, writes, and consults about all things asset management.
