What You Need to Know

CMMS and EAM systems can gather data all year capturing costs, reasons for failure, and other strategic to help the facility manager control maintenance costs. Did yours?

Using CMMS Data for Year-End Reporting and Strategic Planning

When you add up the true costs of maintenance for any size or type of plant or facility—it’s easy to see that maintenance labor, contracted or in-house makes up a big piece of the financial pie. Financial performance drives day-to-day operational decisions, organizational business management, and long-range strategic planning. With end of the year just around the corner, now’s the time to review what your CMMS/EAM system is giving you and your organization. Is it the critical data you need to make sound maintenance management decisions for 2017 and beyond?

CMMS Asset Data

The lifeblood of maintenance is work management. A robust, flexible CMMS/EAM solution allows you to effectively track, monitor, and measure demand maintenance (DM) and preventive maintenance (PM) work orders using schedules that relate to your specific plant or facility industry and usage conditions. You can’t manage what you don’t measure.

CMMS Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s)

All data is not created equal. Your CMMS should track the key performance indicators (KPI’s) that have significant relevance to your organization’s maintenance needs—but it’s up to you to determine those indicators. Equipment performance, productive and unproductive asset utilization, including idle time, preventative maintenance and demand maintenance downtime, breakdowns, labor costs, meantime between failure, mean-time to repair and hot/cold calls and other service issues are candidates to measure.

CMMS Reporting Functionality

Data is information. The right CMMS solution collects and allows you to filter data, gathering that data into graphs and reports. Asset repair costs, maintenance trends, and resource allocation reporting are some of the basics. Make sure your CMMS has the data capture ability to provide the reporting functionality you need for day-to-day decisions and long-range planning.

CMMS Data Integration for Year-End Planning

The global economic outlook and increasingly competitive marketplace demands strategic asset management. Asset and maintenance information should be an integral part of your organization’s financial, operational, and strategic objectives including:

  • Capital expenditures and budgeting
  • Energy use management
  • Labor resource allocation
  • Risk management
  • Sustainability initiatives
  • Continuous improvement and benchmarking
