Actually a combination of two methods are used to bridge the gap between data collection and management technique.

  • Strict usage of TDC metrics

  • And data sharing standards like MIMOSA

MIMOSA is more than an organization developing open exchange conventions. It is the enabling factor permitting integrated maintenance management, a connection to enterprise resource programs, and practical profitability-related operations and maintenance.
