Often maintenance programs focus primarily on breakdowns and emergency repairs—and not enough time implementing successful preventive maintenance (PM) programs to reduce those high-cost repairs.
How Can I Improve My Organization’s Maintenance Programs?
he fastest way to improve an organization’s maintenance program is to invest in CMMS software. This technology supports maintenance programs by enabling maintenance managers to schedule and track PMs, and to notify technicians when they need to occur. Your maintenance programs go from being reactive to proactive, and preventing problems before they occur.
What’s the Best Way to Support My Maintenance Programs?
CMMS software is the best way to support your organization’s maintenance programs. When you use CMMS software to schedule and track PMs, you’ll reduce emergency maintenance issues and unexpected production stoppages. This, in turn, cuts overtime costs for emergency repairs and reduces production losses.
Maintenance and inspection schedules generated from CMMS help spot issues before they occur. Maintenance intervals can be scheduled based on asset or part condition, which triggers a work order just before the point when system inefficiencies or failures begin to occur. Regular servicing also ensures equipment is properly calibrated and lubricated.
And that’s not all. Work order management features in CMMS software can automate schedules for both employees and contract workers. This information also eliminates lost information between shifts, reducing confusion and errors. Employee performance tracking helps you determine which employees are most efficient at which tasks, enabling managers to balance the workload. By tracking repair times, you can create benchmarks for your organization as well.
