Maintenance managers know the importance of tracking maintenance tasks. We've been doing it for years—first with pen and paper, then with spreadsheets or databases. But yesterday's solutions aren't up to the job of today's complex maintenance environment. Maintenance management is evolving, and today's computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) offers the advanced tracking capabilities you need to make your operations more efficient and your team more productive.
How Can Maintenance Tracking Help My Organization?
You know properly maintained assets perform more efficiently, use less energy, and fail less often—extending their usable life. Your maintenance team keeps everything running smoothly by regularly performing PM tasks that contribute to the upkeep of assets. This important work helps your organization prevent serious problems that arise as a result of neglect as well as delay more expensive maintenance.
Maintenance and inspection schedules generated from CMMS help spot issues before they occur. Maintenance tracking 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.
What Can I Do to Improve My Organization's Maintenance Tracking?
You cannot measure what you don't record. When you track maintenance tasks, you also collect valuable data that provides insight into your maintenance department's performance—both where things are going well and where you can make improvements. CMMS software is the best way for maintenance teams to track maintenance activity by managing work orders, scheduling preventive maintenance tasks, collecting asset data, and creating custom reports that offer insight into your operations.
