“Working digitally” isn't just marking up a PDF on a screen instead of working with paper.
The asset management industry’s demand for mobile, integration and analytics all rely on one component that’s often overlooked: interactive digital documentation.
Digital asset management documentation encompasses digital work instructions, procedures, checklists, and forms. It refers to the materials used to instruct on processes and digitally capture the execution of maintenance work.
To really gain the benefits of digital, it requires the content builders to think differently about how to prepare and present the content to end users.
“True” digital asset management documentation is interactive, context-aware, asset-centric, and integrated. More advanced digitisation can drive higher quality standards, greater efficiencies and capturing actionable feedback and data that's optimised for analytics.
It may sound complex to implement, but like all programs the process of digitising asset management documentation is quicker and easier when road-mapped effectively. It's also important to select the right tools for the job, such as a no-code builder with the ability to import or convert existing content automatically.
The goal of digital asset management documentation is like that of maintenance process management. It improves performance and operational agility by optimising connectivity between maintenance groups, communication and feedback captured at the asset.
The major benefits to digital asset management documents include:
1. The Single source of truth.
Building a single, integrated and trusted source of asset management documentation improves performance on multiple fronts:
2. Documentation is critical for quality and process control.
3. Drive continuous improvement by capturing feedback and engaging the workforce in process improvement.
