Manufacturers have a big job. Various machines, multiple buildings, labor, and inventory add to innumerable tasks and costs of plant management. Supply and demand combined with emergency maintenance and poor management and can cause a very big headache when it is not addressed properly. Sometimes plant managers do not even know about the potential time and cost savings that are available to them through Eagle Technology’s suite of Proteus CMMS software. Proteus CMMS software takes on the biggest problems in manufacturing by providing an easy and effective way to streamline operations, which leads to better management, a reduction in downtime, and significant cost savings.
World Class Manufacturing (WCM)
Part of the World Class manufacturing methodologies (WCM), the Machine ledger in PROTEUS MMX records the maintenance of the machinery, revealing the root causes of the faults, while at the same time feeding a historical archive for failures, PM’s and unplanned maintenance and parts usage
Our manufacturing clients are working toward a more comprehensive preventive maintenance program, moving from 80% break/fix to 80% PM, improving equipment reliability. We also help other clients move from PM’s to predictive maintenance. With a scarcity of qualified technicians, a predictive maintenance program allows the focused efforts of the staff toward the assets that need attention at the right time.
Maintenance parts inventory can be in excess of a million dollars per plant. Through the use of Proteus MMX, clients are working on right-sizing their parts investment between facilities. Every dollar saved by utilizing existing parts between plants is like $4 to $5 of increased sales and more profit to the bottom line. Proteus MMX can do forward forecasts of parts needs based on PM schedules.
Reduce energy use and the associated costs using the asset management feature of CMMS software. Any valuable asset such as HVAC systems, electricity, plumbing systems, and anything else that can be better managed with CMMS software will reveal the patterns and problem areas of energy use. Eagle’s CMMS software also integrates with Building Automation Systems.
Collecting data is a powerful way to see how operations are truly functioning in manufacturing plans. Managers benefit by analyzing the data and pinpointing issues which need improvement and overall make better decisions. The data can also be captured in real-time so that devices and machines can be followed or send alerts.
Easily manage the work crew with automated work orders. Scheduling and tracking employee activities with Proteus CMMS software eliminates overlapping, reduces labor costs and increases productivity.
Overall Cost Reduction
Improve gross margins by using CMMS software. Rather than having the sales department scramble to make up for increasing manufacturing costs, apply best practices in manufacturing management using CMMS software. Depending on the length of time that CMMS software is used and the depth at which it is used, best-practices can shave off tens of thousands of dollars each year and relieve expenditures.
Avoid long treks back to the workstation by using Proteus CMMS mobile features. Take maintenance management anywhere on your smartphone or tablet.
Compliance and Reports
Tracking maintenance activities with Proteus CMMS software helps with regulatory inspections and ISO certification. In addition, track changes with our optional audit trail module. Detailed reports are also available with Proteus CMMS software.
