You cannot have effective asset management or implement effective reliability solutions without Master Data. Having comprehensive, accurate, timely, and standardized data is critical to all aspects of running your business. From Planners to Schedulers to Engineers to Finance, all members of your asset intensive business rely upon master data for planning, coordination, and assignment of resources. Too many organizations struggle with the adage of ‘we’ll 80/20 it’ and get the other items once business settles down. The fact is business never settles down and often the 80 percent is only 30% accurate and comprehensive enough for users of the information to effectively and efficiently do their work. This situation is all too common and need not be. CAMS Consulting has worked on numerous projects aiding our clients to obtain a full breadth and depth of key information necessary. By CAMS working with these organizations they have been able to:

  • Streamline work processes
