Asset Lifecycle Management

Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne’s Asset Lifecycle Management solution helps drive greater value from your assets, whether they are plants, facilities, or equipment. From capital planning and budgeting, to procurement and operations, to maintenance and repair, JD Edwards Asset Lifecycle Management can maximize profitability and return on investment across the entire asset lifecyle.

Benefits Include:

  • Complete enterprise-wide visibility enables executives and managers to make sound asset investment and management decisions to drive financial value at every stage of the asset lifecycle.
  • Keep assets running at maximum availability and extend equipment life.
  • Increase labor productivity by scheduling maintenance around operations, matching employee skills to specific maintenance tasks.
  • Optimize maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) inventories and automate the fulfillment of spare parts and supplies.
  • Track the financial performance of assets and tie costs and revenue generated to individual key assets, such as plants and transmission or production lines.

Capital Asset Management

The Capital Asset Management product within JD Edwards Enterprise one is designed to give you a closer look into all your fixed assets. It will provide you with visibility of your assets from deployment through operations, maintenance and retirement. The goal through this system is to give you a true view of each asset’s operational and financial performance, so you can ensure that every capital investment into assets is profitable.

This module is fully integrated with other JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications, including those designed for the management of labor, procurement, finances, services, projects, and warranties. This will in-turn allow you to put asset management practices in place that will reduce operating costs, capital expenditures, and spare parts inventory, while simultaneously increasing utilization, production and reliability.

The system will give you a complete view of all labor and parts needed for asset management, thereby allowing you to optimize labor and reduce costs associated with overtime and excess spare parts and inventories.

You will also be able to match maintenance and repair tasks to employees. This will take into account availability and skill level of employees to ensure that you are minimizing overtime pay. Capacity and workload tracking will lend itself to reducing overtime, as well.

The system will also allow you to schedule servicing as needed to ensure that you assets are operating at optimal performance. Preventive maintenance schedules based on user-defined usage thresholds will allow you to ensure that maintenance is performed around production needs, as opposed to disrupting production for maintenance. Examples of the user-defined thresholds for usage include: meter readings, hours used, miles driven, fuel used, specific dates, or time intervals.

Finally, failure analysis will allow you to see how and why assets fail. This will then allow you to ensure that your assets are operating at peak levels and avoid failure in the future.

Feature Highlights:

  • Integrated time & labor management
  • Preventive maintenance scheduling
  • Work order management for maintenance work with optional automatic work order activation
  • Failure analysis
  • Maintenance planning
  • Equipment, cost, work order, maintenance planning, and preventative maintenance reporting
  • Warranty management
  • Contract management

Condition-Based Maintenance

You assets need to run at full capacity in order to maximize revenue generation. However, this raises the question of how do you run your assets at full capacity while minimizing unplanned downtime? The answer: continually collected information about each asset from the Condition-Based Maintenance application in your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Suite.

Rather than waiting to fix your equipment until after a breakdown occurs or basing maintenance on a set calendar or usage-based metric, you will be able to fix equipment only and immediately when it’s necessary. This results in reduced maintenance costs, equipment downtime and productivity.

Many pieces of equipment now come with monitoring devices built into them. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne will integrate with these monitoring devices to gather data. This real-time data stream is then used to judge conditions of equipment against predefined operating parameters. If the information falls outside the parameters, an alert signals the problem. What’s more, you are able to set the parameters for each piece of monitored equipment yourself. Meaning the monitoring can be as sensitive or loose as you’d like it to be, for each individual piece of equipment.

The alerts can be delivered in a number of ways. Options include: delivery by email, pager, or some other messaging system. If you do not want an alert, the system can automatically generate a work order that prompts for inspection and repair.

The fact that JD Edwards EnterpriseOne actively monitors your equipment means that it will catch a problem before outward signs are noticeable. Instead of waiting for a piece of equipment to breakdown to perform repairs, you can catch may repairs before they become major issues, saving time and expenses in repairs. This proactive approach to monitoring and maintenance will ensure that you keep equipment running smoothly thus increasing productivity and in-turn revenues.

Feature Highlights:

  • Condition based testing, test routes, schedules and reading
  • Automatic maintenance work order production
  • Standard equipment monitoring device connectors
  • Test analysis and automatic processing
  • Project management forecasting
  • Shutdown scheduling

Contract and Service Billing

Contract and Service Billing calculates customer invoices accurately based on your business rules. This gives you the flexibility to meet the diverse terms and billing methods of contracts and service. This module is designed to handle the billing for complex contracts and service agreements. Integration with project costing will ensure that you are billing the correct amount and do not have to waste time reentering data. No matter the source, any costs associated with a project are taken into account in billing.

The software allows you to tailor your invoices to each of your customers’ preferences. You are able to setup flexible billing cycles and custom invoice format in multiple currencies and languages. Contract and Service Billing supports all variations of daily, weekly, or monthly billing cycles–or any other customer-designated interval.

User Reviews of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

Absolute Barking Dog of a program. In theory you can monitor down time and mean time between failures but this requires an army of highly skilled clerical people entering data into many different parts of the program with high levels of access. An incredibly expensive program to buy and a complex and expensive program to use and maintain. You are unlikely to see a positive return on investment from JDE.

The Good…

You can export the contents of almost any screen to Excel or CSV to work with it outside JDE. Screens are vey configurable to show the information you need to see for the function you are performing.

The Bad…

Basic functionality for maintenance planning is available at additional cost or not available at all. Predicted dates for maintenance tasks are not dynamic and poorly calculated so not suitable for mobile plant. Plant can be overdue service but the planned date in JDE will still be some weeks away. You will need to export all your data to Excel or use another application to effectively plan your maintenance. There are a lot of better systems out there but none that are worse from a users point of view.

JD Edwards production E1 system has to be one of the worst systems I have ever used in my life. There is basically no way of teaching yourself how to use this system without a system without excessive manuals and even at that you’ll never know the full extent of the system.

The Good…


The Bad…

We use an old JD Edwards EnterpriseOne ERP which has requires us to do a lot of hardcoding of commands. We looked at a demo of the new version and although the point and click features are nice, the reporting sucks and the information is horrible. Needing to upgrade for $1.2 million did not seem worth it. I believe there are more cost effective and better functioning programs out there.

Using HR, payroll, and GL - It’s not easy to use for our users, it’s old and antiquated, it’s not web based. We have problems using it from home or off site
