CMMS VS EAM. What is the difference?

Hi All, 

We did some research into this area and came up with the following hypothesis. 

EAM is for Total Asset Lifecycle Management where CMMS is focussed on Asset Maintenance (which is a part of asset lifecycle). EAM is an enterprise-wide tool covering procurement, finance, planning, production, operations, maintenance and disposal. Our research suggested that CMMS is more aligned with Operations and Maintenance. 

You can view the table of differences and the complete research between EAM and CMMS

Please let us know what you think. 

Best Regards, 


CMMS & EAM are very different in early 1980, but now have several common modules, CMMS has specific modules like calibration management, lock & key management, predictive maintenance modules, IoT sensor connected for real time critical parameter monitoring.
