Realize the benefits of Design, Operate, Maintain today
There is plenty that maintenance and plant operations professionals can do to make DOM a reality today.
Design, Operate, Maintain (DOM), the term coined by industry analysts ARC Advisory Group, gives us a vocabulary to talk about some of the key concepts in asset management and in industrial maintenance, repair and, operation. Indeed, industrial facility designers and those who operate and maintain those facilities need to work together closely if plant efficiency and business profitability are to improve over time. Communication between these various entities has been lacking, however. Modern enterprise resource planning tools (ERP), computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS), and CAD design packages are moving toward a point of integration that could facilitate greater communication between these disciplines.
