Preventive Maintenance Program

A preventive maintenance program is an important part of successful maintenance management. And the best tool for your preventive maintenance program is computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software.

What Should My Preventive Maintenance Program Include?

The basics of preventive maintenance software programs should include:

  • Preventive Maintenance Scheduling establishes, monitors, and executes preventive maintenance schedules—including both time- and meter-based scheduling.
  • Asset Records, the heart of any maintenance or asset management solution, store the details about the equipment, buildings, vehicles, or other assets you’ll be maintaining. Typically, these include asset name, purchase date, purchase price, serial number, location, and other important descriptive details.
  • Employee Records store information about your employees who will do the work: names, contact information, certifications, and anything else you want to track about your organization’s people.
  • Inventory Records hold the details about spare parts and consumables you have on hand: type, model, serial number, manufacturer, supplier name, location name, item number, item state, unit of measure, and other critical information your department needs to have about its parts and consumables.
  • Work Orders are the “digital documents” that track management of repairs and PMs. They are the forms inside the software that link all the elements of repair and maintenance work in one place.
  • Basic Reporting tools help you create meaningful information from the data recorded for assets, employees, inventory, schedules, and work orders.
