Field Service Management (FSM)

Field service management (FSM) software is a set of functionalities for organizations or departments within organizations that have as main focus the intallation, maintanance, reparing, and meter reading for industries relying heaviling on equipment. FSM workers require functionality for customer engagement management, service and asset management as well as workforce management. Since most activities in FSM take place outside of the office, mobility is a big component of the a FSM software solutions. Typically, FSM software is not used as a stand-alone solution, as it needs to integrate with Financials, ERP, CRM and EAM to ensure accurate data exchange. Even if its main purpose is to maintain and repair equipment, it can also be used to gather customer satisfaction and equipment performance feedback. To allocate human resources efficiently, workforce management is an integral part of an FSM system.

The Next Generation of Overall Equipment Efficiency


In asset-intensive industries, the need for an overall equipment efficiency (OEE) system is driven by the need to capture real-time information. When equipment operation data is automatically collected and refined by the operator, the quality and quantity of data, and the ability to access and analyze it in a specific manner can greatly help to reduce costs and maximize productivity.

Because much of the data collection can be semi- or fully automated, MES provides greater confidence in there being a single, reliable version of the truth, enabling management to move past blame-and-denial to focus on tackling inefficiencies and eliminating bottlenecks. Many manufacturers in a variety of industries are facing a looming skills shortage due to an aging workforce. Detailed work instructions in an MES system provide Read More

Global Asset Sustainability: Breakthrough Lean Best Practice Counters Rising Energy Costs


Leading companies are reducing energy consumption and costs as a top-priority initiative—with benefits ranging from more efficient operations to increased shareholder value, improved environmental conditions, and new market opportunities. A global asset sustainability approach will give you opportunities to further lower costs while ensuring reliable operations in all your properties, plants, and equipment. Learn how.

Asset Performance Management: The Secret to Uncovering Hidden Profits and Ending Operating Surprises


Top performers optimize their assets. It’s true in any field—sports, the arts, and business. Yet in business, optimizing performance of capital assets often plays distant runner-up to the more glamorous pursuit of top-line growth. That’s not surprising, given the importance of increasing sales revenue. But it can cost you—and lead to operating surprises that are even more punishing.

SAP to Harness HANA and Mobility for the 4th Industrial Revolution


While some analysts may question the true revenue figure that can be attributed solely to SAP HANA (i.e., whether SAP is intentionally crediting HANA with revenues that might be attributable to other SAP offerings), the fact remains that businesses have currently only just scratched the surface of SAP HANA’s potential. For example, SAP recently announced that HANA would underpin new releases of

Confronting the Aerospace and Defense Equipment Reset


To accomplish the reset tasks associated with equipment coming back from the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan, the U.S. military and the militaries of NATO allies rely on contractors in the aerospace and defense (A&D) sector. This paper looks at how A&D companies require enterprise systems support that goes beyond the bounds of conventional enterprise resource planning (ERP) or enterprise asset management (EAM) systems.

Case Study: Meyn Radically Simplifies Its Quotation Process


Dutch company Meyn experienced rapid growth to become the world’s leading manufacturer of poultry processing equipment. But its quote production process still lagged behind—often taking up to a week to produce a quote. Meyn realized that it needed a configure, price, quote (CPQ) tool that would allow the sales team to quote quickly at the initial stage of the sales cycle and that would be able to generate detail for those cases that were further along. Read up on the benefits Meyn achieved with the Tacton CPQ tool.
