CMMS Software

A CMMS is designed primarily to assist maintenance services companies in their missions. Maintenance services, as defined by AFNOR, seeks to maintain or restore property (equipment) in a specified state so that it is able to provide a specific service. A CMMS can also be useful in other company departments, such as production or operation (to provide information on the status of equipment), as well as financial and general management of the company, providing indicators that facilitate decision making regarding renewal of the park, for example.

Thus, the most common features of these software packages are:

  • Management of equipment: equipment inventory, location, dedicated management information by type of equipment (production, buildings, vehicles, networks, computers, etc..)
  • Management of maintenance: corrective (with OT: work order, or BT: good works, or MDGs: order maintenance), preventive (routine, conditional, provisional), etc.. This module includes features often open to users beyond the maintenance department as a claims management intervention (DI), which allows any authorized person of the company to report a bug to be considered by the maintenance.
  • Managing the safekeeping facilities for maintenance work: logging, centralized, security clearance, tagout, etc.., To enable locking of an installation for optimal maintenance operations.
  • Inventory management: stores, minimum or maximum quantities of replenishment, ABC analysis, selection lists (pick-lists), and referencing research, replacement, catalog suppliers, etc..
  • Procurement management of spare parts or services (outsourcing, package or board), cycle quote / purchase request / order / receipt & return provider, billing, etc..
  • Personnel management and planning: activities, crafts, planning load forecast, pointing hours, etc..
  • Cost Management and Budget: labor, inventory, purchasing, equipment rental, etc.., Budget preparation, periodic monitoring, variance reports, etc..
  • KPIs (key performance indicators, KPI): pilot's cockpit or dashboard for the manager (database queries for statistics, alerts, etc..).

Other features are: management of inspection, metrology, standards (transport, VRM, etc..), Bar code, link with a GIS, mobile equipment (PDA, Pocket PC, etc..), Monitoring (vibration analysis, infrared, etc..).

Additionally, the CMMS is generally the only enterprise application with a full description of all technical and equipment thereof. This has gradually led some to suggest CMMS functionality based on this knowledge of equipment, but outside the scope of maintenance in the strict sense. These include such tracking of certain regulations (ATEX industry, technical vehicle, equipment monitoring in hospitals, etc..), Or the management of certain processes related to equipment (monitoring consumption in transport management plans in the building, etc..). Adding these features has resulted in publishers increasingly speak of management software for capital goods (asset management) to emphasize that their applications were intended to be used well beyond the maintenance service.
