Maintenance scheduling Software features
Who it is for
Managers will like the combined asset tracking of equipment & facilities. Easily create a corrective and preventive maintenance schedule for all these assets. Useful onsite at manufacturing plants, commercial facilities as well as for offsite field service maintenance. Track parts used and inventory availability to reduce out of stock situations.
Powerful scheduling features
Create & schedule all types of jobs with the same simple program interface. Schedule unplanned work due to equipment breakdowns as needed. For example, schedule regular maintenance on equipment by time (say every three months) or by meter readings on the equipment (say every 10,000 miles), alarms and so on.
Import & setup from Excel data
For instance, do you already have much of your data in Excel spreadsheets? You can import equipment, locations, spare parts, job templates and more. Hence, you can quickly setup your system and get going.
Use the Import feature to get a step-by-step wizard that guides you to map your data to the correct fields.
In addition, you can export data to Excel. For example last month’s work orders for further analysis.
Keep track of pending tasks
Use work orders to schedule & track work to be done by technicians or outside sub-contractors. Work orders can printed or emailed with reminders sent out when they are overdue. In addition, print pictures and detailed instructions on work orders to help technicians perform maintenance jobs correctly.
Useful reporting & analytics
Offers a variety of customizable reports that can printed or emailed. So you can get an idea of equipment downtime, work order costs, spare parts usage and more. Above all, use the one-page Statistics report to get an idea of your current situation at a glance!
Use the WYSIWYG Report Editor to create your own reports and graphs. For example, add your logos, insert custom fields, change report formats and more.

1. Equipment Maintenance Calendars & Scheduling Preventive Maintenance
When you have several hundred equipment it can be hard to get an idea of preventive maintenance that is due for all the different equipment. Hence, this is where reports from your CMMS software can be quite helpful. For instance, you may find a report called Equipment Maintenance Calendar. Use it to get an idea of preventative work due in the coming months week by week.
2. Ways To Schedule Preventive Maintenance For Equipment & Machinery
Scheduling preventative maintenance (PM) is a frequently overlooked aspect of maintenance management. Certainly, nearly every equipment needs some kind of regular maintenance. Above all, this reduces the chance of unexpected failure or repetitive breakdowns. Equipment downtime results in big costs due to lost production, variable product quality and poor customer satisfaction.
3. Preventive Maintenance Scheduling – When Is It Excessive?
Doesn’t this sound weird! But have you ever had this happen to you? Does management or other departments complain that your preventive maintenance scheduling is taking up too much time? Is equipment often unavailable because of scheduled preventive maintenance? Is your team complaining about spending too much time checking equipment and similar tasks?
Depending on your work order backlog and who is complaining, you should take these complaints seriously or not! Most importantly, questions by management and operations need to be properly answered. Complaints by your team may point to underlying problems that may require a review of the work being done. So how should you handle this?
Poor work order estimates are often become very expensive in time & resources! When we have several different maintenance tasks to do every day, it is important to estimate how much time each work order will take. Underestimating the time required will cause many problems. It’s a familiar story and usually goes like this:
“Extra overtime is required every week to complete maintenance work, the maintenance team is stressed out and close to burn out, many critical work orders have not been completed. And the maintenance team has a bad reputation and are seen as very incompetent!”
Maintenance departments in many organizations often have a thankless job! If things are running smoothly no one remembers them. The opposite happens when there are delays or problems due to maintenance requirements. Are you getting many complaints regards facilities maintenance or equipment maintenance? Is there a lot of pending maintenance work? Is it taking too much time to complete? If this sounds familiar, here are three quick maintenance metrics to help you identify causes and solutions.
Maintenance managers and maintenance planners can use these metrics to pinpoint the real issues and how to fix them. These maintenance metrics are not too hard to collect if you have maintenance management software. You should also use them even when everything is going well. You will get a quick measure of your maintenance program as well as identify early actions to take if the metrics are changing in a negative way.
