    Which are different process flows in Oracle eAM module?

    There are 2 types of process flows in eAM module as follows:

    1) Work Execution Implementation Flow
    First, You have to create a Maintenance Work in Process (WIP) Accounting Classes and then you need to define Resources and Maintenance Departments. Afterwards, you decide if employee association is required with resource. If employee and resource association is required, create resource and employee associations and if it is not required then create department and resource associations.

    Finally, you decide if Work Orders are included in projects. If included then you need to set up Project Manufacturing module, and then create a Work Order. If Work Orders are not included in projects, create a Work Order.

    2) Preventive Maintenance Implementation Flow
    First, You have to create an Asset Group.
    Next, decide if Preventive Maintenance (PM) definitions are based on runtime rules. If Yes, create Meter Templates, next Asset Group and Meter associations using those templates, and then create a Set Name. If it is NO i.e. if PM definitions are not based on runtime rules, create a Set Name directly.
    Next, create a Maintenance Activity and then Asset Group and Activity associations using templates. Finally, optionally you have to create PM Schedule templates.

    Oracle EAM - Different types of assets
    Explain the different types of assets?

    There are 2 types of assets
    a) Capital or financial Assets
    b) Maintenanace assets

    Maintenance Assets can be classified into the following two types:

    1) Linear Assets
    Linear Assets have linear properties and are connected with each other by their relationship with the linear infrastructure itself. i.e. Networks
    For example a metropolitan city which has a huge network of subways & roadways. You can model them as linear assets in an Asset Management system and the buildings, poles parks and terminals can be represented as non-linear assets. The joins and overlaps of the Linear Assets make up the networks and the non-linear assets can be ‘placed’ within that Network for positioning and tracking purposes.

    Example are Roads, Rail lines and tracks ,Highways, airport runways, harbors,Ports, Subways, cables, Waterways, Transmission Lines, Water & Sewer pipe lines, Oil & Gas Pipelines

    2) Non-Linear Assets
    A non-linear asset does not have any linear property, occupies some space as per dimension and can be tracked by its location or modeled as part of a parent child hierarchy.

    For example, Mobile assets such as fleet, vehicles, tools and equipment, Fixed Physical assets i.e. plant, equipment, facility ,Component relationship based assets (aircraft, ship), Terminals, Rail cars, Buses, Trucks, Buildings, Parks, Poles, Substations, Facilities, Power Generating Plants & Equipment,Pumping Stations, Extraction Facility.

    Which responsibilities are automatically created during installation process of EAM ?
    Which responsibilities are automatically created during installation process of EAM ?

    When installing Oracle Enterprise Asset Management, the installation process automatically creates the following five responsibilities:
    a) Oracle Enterprise Asset Management
    b) Maintenance User Workbench
    c) Maintenance Super User
    d) Self-Service Work Requests
    e) Self Service Time and Expenses

    The 'Oracle Enterprise Asset Management' responsibility mentioned above is a super user responsibility. It includes the necessary functions to set up and implement Oracle Enterprise Asset Management.

    Oracle Enterprise Asset Management (eAM) module - An Introduction
    What are aims, objects and benefits of Oracle Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) module ?

    1) An asset is an entity for which users can report problems. Assets can be cooling towers, cranes, buses, buildings, conveyors, or anything that needs work.

    2) eAM creates and implements maintenance procedures for both assets and rebuildable Inventory items and takes care of comprehensive and routine maintenance requirements of asset intensive organizations. It effectively maintains assets such as vehicles, cranes and HVAC systems and rotable Inventory items such as motors and engines.

    3) eAM enables users to optimally plan and schedule maintenance operations /activities with minimal disruptions to an organization’s operations and productions. It measures performance and optimizes maintenance operations. It tracks the performance of the assets and rebuildable inventory items by using meters, quality plans and conditioning systems.

    4) By effectively monitoring operational data such as maintenance history, performance trends, meter readings, and operating conditions, organizations can proactively manage available resources such as inventory, equipment and skilled personnel to match them to asset maintenance demand.

    5) Optimization of asset utilizations, scheduling and resources improves resource efficiency and enhances maintenance quality, maximizes resource availability including equipment and labor. Maintenance costs and work history are tracked at asset level.

    6) Oracle eAM enables organizations to create and implement optimal and effective asset management strategies that can increase revenue and decrease costs. Both Preventive and Predictive Maintenance strategies are supported by eAM. It allows you to create alternate maintenance strategies for seasonal or production capacity changes. It supports sophisticated, condition-based maintenance strategies for property, plants and public infrastructure, improves operation performance, and with preventive and scheduled maintenance, increases safety, optimizes Scheduling and resource efficiency.

    7) It eliminates the need for spreadsheets and disparate data repositories, by enabling companies to manage reactive, planned, preventive maintenance, and adopt a centralized, proactive strategy for managing asset maintenance across an enterprise.

    8) Oracle eAM's single-instance design ensures best practices and quality compliance globally, eliminates excess and obsolete spare parts inventories, promotes environmental, health and safety policies, smoothes coordination of production and maintenance schedules and improves both the responsiveness and accuracy of contracted maintenance.

    9) It bridges the gap between ERP/MRP solutions and Asset Maintenance for industries that rely heavily on Asset Maintenance Systems.

    10) It is a lynchpin of the integrated workplace incorporating visual navigation for space planning and allocation, multi-channel service request processing, building systems maintenance and technology asset tracking.

    11) eAM improves return on capital assets by integrating physical with financial aspects and supporting deep collaboration between project lifecycle and service lifecycle operations.

    12) It integrates seamlessly with other modules of E-Business suite and is suitable for Metals/Mining, Manufacturing, Pulp/ Paper, Petrochemicals, Facilities and Education and many more assets.
