EAM and CMMS systems are essential to the survival of asset-intensive companies. In a highly digitized era, this is not novel information. The key to extracting the full value from an EAM or CMMS system is managing it properly. Even though EAM/CMMS systems have been on the market for a long time, many companies still struggle with the basics of maintaining their systems.

Machine learning is a tool that allows systems the ability to learn and improve automatically based upon experience. Machine learning does not need specific programming to carry out an activity. Machine learning is the development of computer programs that can access data, and through a series of algorithms use the data to learn for itself what action should be taken based on that data.
