What really is a roadmap? And do you have one? Or, are you simply throwing darts at a dart board?

A long term strategy for maintenance asset/facility performance and work force efficiency.

A map which shows software, process and organizational requirements - including culture change ~~ A process which has clear roles and responsibilities, plus support from stakeholders ~~ A relationships diagram which links inputs to outputs (analytical reports) ~~ A strategy which supports continuous and sustained improvement ~~ Buy-in from working level which empowers the users ~~ Training on the real "end game" - not just application navigation

This roadmap provides a management reference which links together all their CMMS initiatives. It can also be quite useful for annual budgeting and long range planning. If successfully implemented it can lead to reduced O&M costs. You know you will have succeeded as a process improvement team when this roadmap is posted in the managers office.
