1. Five Benefits CMMS Software Offers Manufacturing Plants
Unfortunately in many manufacturing companies big and small there is a tendency in higher management to see maintenance as a not very important but necessary evil. It is really not something they wish to deal with. They frequently see the maintenance team not as a crucial part of the organization. This unfortunately results in disastrous decisions being made for the maintenance team. CMMS software gets selected on how nice it looks (beautiful and extensive reports are always welcome!). Or how well it integrates with other software (ERP, financial and so on) rather than functionality that will help the maintenance team.
2. CMMS Software Selection Tips – What Should You Be Looking For?
Maintenance management covers a wide area since regular maintenance is required for a variety of assets. A maintenance management program is not only useful in locations with a lot of machines (e.g. manufacturing plants, mining operations, etc.). It is also useful where you have a lot of facilities needing maintenance (hotel, resorts, restaurants) as well as those with other equipment (e.g. utilities, vehicle fleets).
