When building a preventive maintenance (PM) program, it's important to ensure the new program represents an improvement over the reactive maintenance it's replacing and that it includes the necessary supportive back-end systems and processes to ensure the program is efficient.
Organizations that falter during their implementation project may end up falling short in their attempts to switch to effective strategies and spend the next few months scrambling to fix their mistakes.
For today’s manufacturing plants, a key solution may be advanced computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS).
When it comes to managing all aspects of maintenance, capital expenditures (CAPEX) remains one of the key priorities.
CMMS allows employees to work better and safer through advanced metrics, as well as, see solutions to problems they didn’t know existed.
Properly implementing predictive maintenance (PdM) requires initial support from leaders, effective teams, and following through with the system at each step of implementation.
CMMS enhances maintenance strategies of all types and not enough companies have come to realize the benefits that they offer.
Mobile apps are becoming a part of the manufacturing experience by providing users with a natural extension of the browser-based CMMS that workers on the plant floor use on a day-by-day basis.
A smart plant initiative that leverages the Internet of Things (IoT) and predictive maintenance (PdM) CMMS can improve workflow efficiency and provide the necessary information for companies to make better decisions.
Make sure your work doesn't actually harm your equipment.
