Computerised Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) focuses on a parts, inventory and preventative maintenance strategy

 Go by the numbers

Go by the numbers

Above all, the right Computerised Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) platform will help to increase overall efficiencies throughout the warehouse or facility. In short, understanding how to use the CMMS modules will ultimately deliver a profitable outcome: accurate tracking of assets and preventive maintenance cycles translates to better profitability.

Go by the ‘numbers.’

A detailed inventory or audit of all the equipment and related apparatus helps prioritise what should be monitored in relationship to its role in reducing downtime. ‘Numbering’ by hierarchy, or by the importance of each items and part, is a common approach to implementing a CMMS program, including a bill of material (BOM) referencing all the tagged and numbered pieces of equipment.

Preventative Maintenance (PM)

A schedule must be created showing which PM tasks should be performed and when. Will a given project require a different monitoring of assets? Too, will you be producing reports daily, weekly, etc.

Inventory

Again, use a numbering or barcoding scheme with detailed information about a part, including its warranty, location of spare parts in the facility (bin and aisle) and the vendor contact information.

Key to any Preventative Maintenance and parts inventory program is availability when needed, where is that part?  Moreover, are key people given access via mobility to find that part when critical maintenance need to be done?

Moreover, with multiple locations, make certain procedures are consistent in each facility---are the parts named and numbered the same, for example?

Keeping track of parts, issuing reports on critical equipment and their lifecycles is what Reduxo is all about. Contact us and let us help you in setting up your CMMS strategy.
