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. Tracking Maintenance Transactions The survey found that only 20% of respondents track 100% of maintenance and repair

repair spares were tracked in the CMMS. Inaccurate information about spares on hand
can cause an expensive “over stock” situation or worse, not having a spare part available
when it is required. Maintenance and repair inventory can cost an additional 25% of its
value per year to carry. That is a real cost and in today’s rapid delivery world, provides a
significant opportunity for maintenance operations to improve quickly...
