Asset Classifications

Definition

Classifying your assets means grouping assets according to shared or similar characteristics. For example, a filter system motor has an asset class of Motor. Our Asset Classification Registry has 2,398 asset classes across 34 industry segments to help you drive the development of failure codes, PMs, standard job plans, naming conventions, custom fields, and more. See examples of our industry-standard asset classes below.

Purpose

Asset Class Codes are used for searching, reporting, and reliability (i.e., failure) analysis.

Responsibility

The Asset Class Code is assigned to the asset record by the EAM Equipment Focus Team.

Location

The Asset Class Code resides in the EAM system and is associated to the asset record.

Timing

The Asset Class Code is assigned when the new asset is loaded to the EAM database.

Requirements

All assets should have an Asset Class Code assigned.
