This discussion will center on the effective selection and implementation of a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) for effective work management, planning and scheduling.
Many maintenance and reliability professionals believe that a CMMS will improve reliability or work force productivity by simply installing the software and performing basic processes. They are wrong. The CMMS is a key element within an asset management system and requires a combination of software/data, process, vision, and clear roles among a variety of functions.
In this session we’ll be considering the best approach for implementing a CMMS along with special guest John Reeve, covering, among other issues:
The purpose of having a CMMS
How your CMMS is used to add value
The interactions and responsibilities of various roles, e.g., Gatekeeper, Planner, Scheduler, Reliability Engineer, Business Analyst, Asset Manager
Responsibilities for running the CMMS, e.g., IT admin, Maintenance Manager, Asset Manager, other common challenges, e.g., bad data, lack of reports, culture, resources, poor leadership, budget, lack of vision/knowledge in asset management
We can talk all day about how to Implement a CMMS, but it is the surrounding processes and procedures where the greatest improvement will be made.
We hope you enjoy this episode!
