Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) for ports and terminals:
Port and terminal operators aim to keep their assets in optimal condition. This is a key factor for achieving a maximum performance result.
Terminal specific implementations have made it difficult to compare performances between different terminals in the past. Therefore, the inconsistent information available from ports made it problematic to increase efficiency and to implement techniques such as total productive maintenance.
To face this challenge, port and terminal operators wish to ensure that their materials and components for building, maintaining, or repairing assets are managed in a way that guarantees maximum results.
In order to accomplish that, they require a well-designed IT solution that will help to ensure that high-value assets operate the way they are meant to. Enterprise asset management can minimize both risks and costs, and optimizes business value.
Although the basic demands of the terminal can be handled by an off-the-shelf EAM solution, to obtain optimal results it needs to be integrated into other port domains such as Flex Maritime Logistics © to achieve full operational efficiency.
