Fort Myers FL (PRWEB) January 22, 2007
Reliabilityweb.com announced the launch of the new SAP Plant Maintenance (SAP PM) Best Practices Benchmarking Study designed to provide a self assessment method for SAP PM users on a global basis.
"In 2004 we studied the broader Computerized Maintenance Management (CMMS) and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) markets. Since then a great deal of consolidation has taken place and SAP has clearly got the largest percentage of the maintenance software market." states Terrence O'Hanlon, CMRP, Publisher of Uptime Magazine and Reliabilityweb.com. "We have recently seen some extraordinary SAP Plant Maintenance "best practice" companies - and we think that is beginning to reflect in the Earnings Per Share (EPS). We have also seen some "worst practice" companies. We decided to get a better snap shot of real word SAP Plant Maintenance practices post EAM market consolidation."
In addition to evaluating maintenance work processes, the survey try to size the SAP PM "add on" market for SAP PM GUI Interfaces, Maintenance Planning tools, Reliability Centered Maintenance tools, PM Optimization tools and Enterprise Analytics for Asset Management. "SAP has developed several value added partners that offer tools that enhance the plant maintenance user experience." continues O'Hanlon "and our members want to know what tools are working best to achieve world class operational excellence through reliable asset maintenance."
Survey participants are entitled to a FREE copy of Reliabilityweb.com's SAP Plant Maintenance Best Practices Report once published. The report will also be distributed to attendees of EAM-2007, The Enterprise Asset Management Summit held April 3-6, 2007 at the Sheraton Waikiki in Honolulu Hawaii.
