Hoyt needed a flexible, affordable, and user-friendly CMMS system that would help them plan and track labor and manage inventory for their department of six technicians responsible for maintaining the entire infrastructure and over 400 assets. They also needed a system that would be able to take corrective, reactive, and preventive maintenance information and accurately forecast labor requirements to minimize downtime as well as having a friendly reporting interface for tracking KPIs.
Hoyt began using eMaint in August of 2009. Categories for work
orders were established so work orders and costs could be grouped
by department. By tracking downtime, labor, work orders, and
maintenance by type, they were able to build a maintenance
history that assisted in determining future maintenance costs.
Adding photos of spare parts to the database helped decrease lookup
time and improved inventory accuracy.
Most production equipment is designed and engineered in-house.
The bill of material provides the maintenance team with a list of
spare parts needed for repairs when the equipment is rolled out to
production and tracks costs of engineering projects.
- 40% reduction in downtime
- 77% increase in PM compliance
- Maintenance history improves budget and labor forecast
- Improved efficiency of assigning and completing work
orders, reducing work backlog
- Tracking spare parts and locations eliminates hours spent daily searching for parts
- Better understanding of repair costs per assetAuto Replenishment system lowers inventory costs and improves inventory turns
