The value of asset management

Bringing location data into a dataset provides context to your analysis in ways that aren’t always detectable on a spreadsheet, linear graph, or pie chart. This context also leads to better prioritization, planning, and execution of objectives.

The value of the data will always depend on the project and the purpose of it. The true value is the combination of the gathered data and the localisation. This gives you the possibility to analyse and to optimize the efficiency of your machines.

Some examples of time and money saving advantages:

  1. Keep track on the working hours and performance of your machines or assets
  2. Failure analysis & safety improvements
  3. Predictive maintenance
  4. ...

Challenges to consider when using location data

There are plenty of benefits, but also some challenges to bear in mind.

Some examples:

  • Big data and the internet of Things: make sure you have no resource constraints to store and analyze all of this data!
  • Accuracy: Ingesting location data, verifying its accuracy, and avoiding generalizations can be tricky.
  • Data Privacy: Privacy is critical.
  • Data interpretation: You need to employ skilled experts to understand and to interpret the data before extracting meaning and value from the data.
