Using FastMaint CMMS software for forklift maintenance
Manage maintenance of both forklift fleets as well as other equipment assets. Make corrective and preventive maintenance plans. Very useful for maintenance management at industrial plants, warehouses & other commercial facilities. Keep track of maintenance costs, warranties & more.
Schedule maintenance in multiple ways
You can create & schedule corrective as well as planned maintenance tasks. Firstly, schedule unplanned maintenance due to equipment breakdowns as needed. Secondly, schedule regular maintenance on equipment by time (say every three months) or by meter readings on the forklift (say every 10,000 miles), alarm condition on the forklift and so on.
You can import from Excel files
Have a lot of data in Excel files or comma delimited files? Use the Import feature to import the equipment, locations, parts, maintenance task templates and more. So you can setup your system faster and start your maintenance planning!
In addition, you can periodically import meter readings & alarm data from such files. Based on task settings, this can automatically schedule maintenance. For example, when a forklift’s meter reading shows more than 300 hours of use since last maintenance.
The Import feature has a step-by-step wizard that will help you to map your data to the correct fields.
Plus you can export data to Excel. For example last quarter’s work orders for further analysis.
Create maintenance work orders & track status
Based on the maintenance task templates you create, FastMaint will generate work orders for the maintenance. Use them to assign & follow up on maintenance to be done by maintenance personnel. You can print out work orders or email them, with email reminders sent out when they are overdue. You can also insert pictures and detailed instructions on work orders to help technicians perform maintenance jobs correctly.
