In recent years, CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management System) is enjoying great success as more and more companies are oriented towards this system. The great potential expressed by software in wide-ranging and diverse scenarios of maintenance, along with the ease of use of simplified and fast information, and can also be exchanged via the web, represents the main reasons for this trend.
But often very large data streams can be accessed to change into something negative. In fact, if it is not designed and tailored to customer needs, the most powerful CMMS software can turn into a slow and ineffective maintenance planning model. Therefore, it is important for CMMS system suppliers to operate with professionalism to adjust potential functionality to the customer’s real needs through developing a customized treatment plan. It is also important for companies to ensure that CMMS software providers are able to offer maximum collaboration in this complex project phase, supporting their expert teams at the company.
Satisfaction with modern and efficient maintenance requirements can only be guaranteed thanks to projects that are based on special software, fast and free of dispersive appendages:
The first step for implementing a maintenance management system through the use of CMMS software provides detailed analysis of the initial situation and procedures used, in many cases, based on the use of paper forms. Extracting and loading data on a PC are needed for further analysis. This type of organization mainly concerns managing corrective maintenance interventions with a small portion of prevention. The organization is usually provided for factories that must ensure compliance with certain safety standards.
In recent times, many companies have a tendency to reduce the number of corrective maintenance interventions that support entrusted preventive maintenance interventions, entrusting a series of operations directly to the personnel and carrying out the installation. It has been found that greater involvement of these numbers can improve overall maintenance performance. This activity implies the implementation of various programs including: provision of knowledge through special training plans, development of tailor-made care plans based on contributions from various professional figures such as department heads, factory operators, reactive maintenance managers and, as mentioned earlier, CMMS software providers.
Improving overall maintenance performance remains the main goal of every company that feels they need to update their maintenance service management:
Each company is different from the others based on the type of work, factory seniority, the average age of employees, the area confirmed, history, etc. Valid CMMS software design must consider these aspects: because it will be its ability to personalize by adjusting to customer needs to make a difference between effective and useless CMMS.
A CMMS is designed with the appropriate features allows to achieve:
– excellent return on investment (ROI).
– inventory optimization, spare parts, automatic reordering, immediate identification in the warehouse.
– elimination of paper documentation.
– complete management of work orders on PCs and / or mobile devices, personalization of forms, tracking and data storage of each component.
– lengthening of average plant life with reduction of maintenance costs.
– reduction of emergency interventions and consequently of overtime.
– reduction of downtime due to accidents thanks to safer systems for personnel and the environment.
– other monitoring processes.
Basically, modern maintenance processes cannot be avoided to create an efficient work environment. When the maintenance process goes bad, the costs that will be incurred will increase, this does not take into account other risks that may occur.
