Identifying the true cost of owning and maintaining an asset!

Identifying the true cost of owning an asset and maintaining it throughout its entire life cycle is one of the most important aspects that organizations struggle with!

This is why we identified this as one topic for our Customer Influence Program. SAP’s Influencing Programs Customer Influence gives you the opportunity of interacting directly with SAP development teams. As a part of this SAP´s Influencing program the Customer Engagement Initiative (CEI) is a structured approach for close end-to-end collaboration between customers and SAP teams during the full development cycle for planned products and solutions and new releases or enhancement packages.

CEI offers an opportunity for customers to influence SAP development in collaboration with their peers. This helps SAP create products and solutions that meet our customers’ needs, reflect best business practices and realize process and technology innovations. We are searching for customers supporting the project “Risk-Based Asset Life Cycle Costing“.

The goal of this project is to document the requirements of maintenance planners, maintenance managers, financial controllers, and purchasers who help optimize life cycle costs and provide visibility into the inherent risks and reliability. This project will also focus on preparing a process map and respective use cases for a risk-based asset life cycle costing solution.

The Role of the customers in this project:

Since life cycle planning is a very critical process, it requires expert maintenance planners whose tasks include forecasting maintenance budgets, planning shutdowns or turn around operations, and preparing proposals to replace or upgrade assets (CAPEX/OPEX decisions). During the discussions it is also expected that a person with a good understanding of the IT system landscape is available for discussing the possibilities and helping design a reliable solution.

You will have the possibility to influence the solution and it´s capability by collaborating in an early stage of development.
