When it comes to CMMS maintenance and repair, what’s the difference? Today, we want to discuss maintenance. More importantly, we want to talk about how maintenance differs from repair. Lots of people still confuse the two, but they couldn’t be more different. Repair is about minimizing damage and returning everything to normal. Maintenance, on the other hand, is about making sure repair never needs to happen. A good maintenance system means parts get serviced or changed before they break.
We throw around the term CMMS a lot on our blog and in these emails. CMMS stands for Computerized Maintenance Management System. The CMMS is what makes automating scheduled maintenance possible. Basically, our software collects information from your Building Automation System and makes that information actionable. The more information you feed your CMMS, the more it can help your business. Everything from knowing calibration requirements and asset location to identifying equipment that isn’t conforming to production requirements can help facility managers extract more value from their CMMS. Here are just a few of the added benefits offered by the Eagle Technology Proteus CMMS family of products:
- Minimizing downtime
- Improving asset life
- Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
- Process and action documentation for ISO compliance
- MRO spare parts inventory control
- Educated asset decisions
As a manager, making sure the right parts and equipment are assigned at all times is a big job. In some larger operations, it’s a few big jobs. The goal with our CMMS solutions is to make that big job easier. Our system helps facility managers by alerting them of potential problems before they arise, not after. More importantly, the CMMS will automatically generate a work order, making sure the right parts get changed before they break, allowing your operation to continue humming along smoothly. By automating your scheduled maintenance, you free up the time you need to focus on managing operations.
