Reliabilityweb.com PO Box 07070 Fort Myers FL 33919 USA [email protected] http://www.reliabilityweb.com Introduction A Computerized Maintenance Management System or CMMS is designed to manage maintenance transactions the same way an Accounting Information Management System manages financial transactions. In the case of maintenance, the transactions are work orders instead of invoices. Inventory is the work backlog and spare parts instead of raw material used in manufacturing. Accurate information is critical to making decisions that ensure the reliable operation of equipment. Developing strategies and tactics for ensuring equipment function can be made easier with accurate maintenance transaction details. Summary reports allow maintenance managers to spot troublemakers; the “critical few” trouble spots that are causing the greatest problems. Planning and scheduling jobs can also be more effective with a fully functional CMMS. Although creating a proactive maintenance culture is possible without a functional CMMS, it is very rare. CMMS ROI 60% of recent survey responses reported that the CMMS implantation failed to generate the anticipated return on investment (ROI). Only 20% characterized their CMMS implementation as successful. © Copyright 2003 NetexpressUSA Inc. All rights reserved 2

Reliabilityweb.com PO Box 07070 Fort Myers FL 33919 USA [email protected] http://www.reliabilityweb.com Many companies have been sorely disappointed with the results of their CMMS implementations. In some instances, the complex system capabilities and functions that can assist management are rarely used. The advantages of leveraging maintenance transaction information are often reduced by poor CMMS work practices. In an effort to uncover some of the causes that reduce the return on investment and affect the promised productivity increases from CMMS, Reliabilityweb.com, Cmmscity.com and Maintenancebenchmarking.com launched the largest independent CMMS Benchmarking survey with responses from over 600 participants from around the world. Reliabilityweb.com ( www.reliabilityweb.com ) is the solution oriented asset reliability web site for the plant maintenance community with a member network of over 10,000 maintenance and reliability professionals.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
