When you have to manage almost 2 million assets for the world’s biggest particle physics research center, through partnerships with more than 100 countries around the world, the pressure is on to maximize uptime and optimize system performance.

That’s why the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) uses Infor Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) to support about 100 million high-tech system components and execute the 150,000 work orders per year that keep its Large Hadron Collider in operation.

In this case study, you will discover how Infor EAM is used at CERN to organize and carry out corrective maintenance on pieces of equipment that break down, increase the efficiency and speed of scheduled maintenance, and increase safety throughout the organization… Read more

The future of EAM is within Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT is already here, but it’s going to become even more prevalent, thanks in part to a reduction in the cost of devices like GPS trackers, digital cameras, and smart sensors.

CERN, the world’s largest research organization for particle physics, uses Infor EAM to manage close to 2 million assets. David Widegren, Head of Asset & Maintenance Management at CERN, explains that operational insight and data from each component is critical, in what is effectively a self-contained IoT. “This combination of asset management with connected equipment, and the data we capture from the assets, is really the way forward,” he says. “We call this the intersection of industrial IoT and EAM. This is the sweet spot for the future.”

IoT and EAM also will play an important role in the development of Smart Cities, which monitor the conditions of critical infrastructure, including bridges, streets, water, and electric systems.
