To make information usable, some questions need answering
Collecting this critical data remains a very time-consuming job when implementing such a system. For example, to make the information usable, the following questions need answering:
• Which data is critical and which isn’t?
• In what format will we store the data’s characteristics?
• Do we link the data to the asset or the function? And if it’s the latter: to which level?
• Should we classify the data? How? Do we use our own system or a set standard (ISO, CEN…)?
