Organizing maintenance data is a huge challenge: cost centers, equipment locations, endless attributes, materials, craft types, failure codes, work types, priority codes, failure modes and on and on. Emerson’s taxonomy is the fundamental dictionary for organizing all of these data sets so that they can be turned into meaningful information, reported consistently – across the plant, business unit or enterprise.


Emerson’s taxonomy is the backbone of our own preconfigured content. Our taxonomy fully supports the development and maintenance of ISO 14224 compliant data structures. Adoption of taxonomy within an EAM system vastly increases the power of the system to measure and compare performance across the fleet. Consistent with the objectives of ISO 14224, when properly deployed, a taxonomy provides the ability to drill down to the sources of performance variance at the equipment level and to take the findings from that analysis and extend them to all similar assets across the enterprise.
