Benefits of an Equipment Maintenance Management Software Program
There are a number of benefits to using equipment maintenance management software. These benefits include:
- Reporting Problems
- Planning Work Orders
- Scheduling Preventative Maintenance
- Tracking Spare Part Usage
- Feedback on Equipment Failure
With your software, problem reports can be made on-demand or automatically. The reports can be automatically routed to the appropriate departments for resolution.
Planning Work Orders
Your software package will also generate work orders to correct problems that have been identified, or for routine maintenance on your equipment. Equipment maintenance management ensures that routine maintenance is scheduled at the correct intervals.
Scheduling Preventative Maintenance
As stated earlier, preventative maintenance is one proactive way you can avoid costly downtime. Your software package will include a routine maintenance schedule for all of your equipment.
Tracking Spare Part Usage
Keeping track of your spare parts is vital to keeping your equipment running smoothly. Your equipment maintenance management software will track how many spare parts you have on hand when they are used (removed from inventory), disposition of used parts, and facilitate ordering new parts so you always have items on hand.
Feedback on Equipment Failure
Your software will store all the feedback on equipment failure. This includes all failure codes and parameters tracking equipment downtime. This information can be used for preventative maintenance to prevent complete shut-down due to equipment failure. This also shows you which equipment experiences the most problems so you can look at a different brand or upgrade existing equipment.
Businesses require equipment to remain in good working order. Whether your business is a service or a product, you will have equipment that must run smoothly to remain profitable.
