Maintenance database software enables maintenance personnel to track the status of maintenance repairs on their assets and calculate the cost of that work. The overall goal is to create a data center that will lead to improved decision-making capability as well as a clear picture of operational efficiency.
A maintenance database collects information about work orders and historical data about assets, which is extremely useful for future analysis and decision making. A maintenance database is the basis for all information related to controlling the cost of maintenance.
How Can a Maintenance Database Help Me?
Maintenance database software tracks how much time each job takes. Each work order gathers time information on every job. As the maintenance team completes more work orders, more data is collected. The value of the maintenance database increases with every work order.
That’s just the beginning, however. A maintenance scheduling database also can link inventory items and their unit costs to work orders and assets. Track work orders and repairs over several years of service, and you’ll soon have solid data on what the asset really costs the company to run—and when it’s more expensive to repair it than to replace it.
Maintenance database software also offers maintenance technicians easy access to information related to equipment or assets—including work order history, inventory or parts information, and links to resources that might help make the repair more efficient. The overall goal is to use the maintenance database to save money and prevent unplanned breakdowns.
