Succeed in Maintenance Management Using Failure Codes

How accurately can you answer these questions about your facilities?

  • What piece of equipment has had the most chronic (low cost, high frequency) failures in the past six months?
  • What type of equipment has had the most failures between scheduled preventative maintenance (PMs) in the past two years?

If you can't answer these questions and don't know how to find the information quickly and easily, you should think about implementing failure codes.

How to Streamline Inventory Tracking with a CMMS Software ?

Imagine a maintenance technician finding the part they need on-site, allowing them to start on a work order right away. Now imagine the same tech needing the same part, but this time the part is two days away in a vendor's warehouse.

Will CMMS Software Continue to be a Solution for Maintenance Managers?

It's fair to say that maintenance technicians and managers enable all other company operations. Without equipment, building facilities and all other functional assets operating properly, business could not be conducted. So, it makes sense that revolutionary Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) software was eagerly welcomed as overdue technology back in the late 1980s.

CMMS Software Applications Your Maintenance Department Has Been Looking For

Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) has changed the landscape of maintenance operations. Over the past twenty years, a growing number of businesses large and small and across all corporate, industry and service sectors have traded in traditional “pencil and paper” approaches to maintenance management for automated systems. Among other things, CMMSs have made it possible for maintenance managers to move beyond simply managing inventories and placing work orders to scheduling preventive maintenance programs designed to keep all equipment in optimal condition that in turn increases their lifespans, maintains facility operations and saves money.

The CMMS industry is constantly evolving in response to marketplace demands. As businesses are confronted with economic challenges, changing technologies and market trends, maintenance management vendors are constantly enhancing their products to meet these demands. In addition, CMMS systems are now available in different formats (cloud based and on-site) and come with a range of features at different price points as well as support options. Considered together, today’s automated maintenance management systems can be customized to meet the requirements of all businesses regardless or their size, industry or budget.

To those new to CMMS products, the range of available options can be overwhelming and confusing. Since budgets and maintenance logistics are primary determinants when selecting a system that is the right fit for your business, it is important to be clear on what these products can actually do.
