The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) system has been in production operation since 2006. From the beginning, the purpose of EAM was to have a tool that would track the work that was happening, keep an inventory of assets, and help predict when assets could be close to failure. However, due to the lack of focus on the proper EAM software configuration, and minimal resources to analyze the data collected, the original effort has not reached full potential. Today the focus is on reducing administrative load on engineers and technicians by utilizing the software for inventory management, automated reliability analysis, predictive maintenance scheduling, and labor and parts cost tracking for budgeting purposes. Particular importance is being placed on ensuring the data collected is properly filtered for ease of analysis.
