Title:  ISO 55000 and SAP: Realizing the Value of Good Asset Management Practices

Profound shifts in society, business, and technology suggest that a new industrial revolution is under way. Manufacturers and companies in asset intensive industries must adapt to continuous change and find innovative ways to compete in global markets while achieving value out of their investment in assets. Technological innovation can help them optimize existing processes and build new services and business models. Operational excellence focused on asset management requires processes and collaboration that span organizational and geographic boundaries, enabled by the right technology infrastructure.
The ISO 5500X suite of International Standards addresses these issues and describes a management system for asset management with the framework on how to establish, implement, maintaining, and continually improve it. SAP solutions enable organizations to achieve operational excellence by providing visibility and transparency of asset relevant business information throughout an entire organization.
This session gives you an overview of ISO 5500 relevant SAP solutions – using them as the common information technology platform on which an organization can implement an asset management system.
