maintenance management

Six Ways
To Empower
Maintenance
A LARGE PART of any successful reliability and maintenance
program is implementing effective information-management
systems and consistent communication with all involved.
With a predictive-maintenance strategy and a CMMS, maintenance managers can nurture their teams and shape a less stressful,
less reactive day-to-day environment. Here are six factors that will
help you change the perception of your department from that of an
expense to an investment.

1

Deliver on continued uptime: Downtime means lost revenue
and managerial frustration. Predictive maintenance and condition-based monitoring help a maintenance manager make efficient
decisions.

2

Manage and meet expectations: A properly established
CMMS will let maintenance managers report important KPIs
to management. Reporting helps ground management demands of
service levels with the reality on the front lines.

3

Secure and defend your budget: Get ahead of the curve and
partner proactively with management. Never surprise them
with a major, unexpected expense. Help management see maintenance as an investment rather than an expense.

With a predictive strategy and effective use of a CMMS, you can change the
perception of your maintenance department.

4

Plan for changing of the guard: A CMMS is the first step
in digitally documenting maintenance efforts to prepare for
the retiring of an experienced workforce. Many veterans hold a
wealth of knowledge about the assets that they have worked on for
decades.

5

Keep teams safe: One of the benefits of using sensors in a
predictive-maintenance approach is that they provide nonstop
monitoring of asset conditions. Sensors negate the need for technicians to do preventive routes in hazardous environments.

6

Work off the same page: A CMMS gives maintenance managers a common platform to partner more effectively with peers
across the organization and across shifts and locations. Partner not
just with maintenance teams, but with any team that has a role in
testing, inspection, and repair. EP
