Definition of CMMS
Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) software—also known as an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) software—are solutions that improve the way leaders manage maintenance operations, teams, inventory, workflows, compliance, and other processes or activities.
CMMS software solutions provide a central repository for all asset data, work orders, materials and inventory, and other vital information for maintenance teams. Using a CMMS, maintenance and reliability professionals can track work activities, parts usage, and asset lifecycle. Labor resources can be maximized through improved planning and scheduling, and the reduction of time spent on data entry and unnecessary maintenance tasks.
The digital record keeping capabilities of software simplifies audits and reporting, making staying in compliance faster and easier. When compliance auditors show up for FDA, ISO, SHA, or GMP regulations, there’s no need to scramble. eMaint CMMS helps teams:
- Generate reports and dashboards
- Track work order history, work requests, and calibration
- Attach documents to records and document procedures
- Record labor and hours spent
eMaint CMMS is as mobile as the teams that use is, allowing members to access information at their fingertips. Users can track key performance measurements, spot trends, report on component failures and more—no matter where they are.
Using a CMMS to improve communication and transparency, as well as worker productivity, boosts an organizations efficiency and asset availability. By preventing failures, instead of reacting to them, it is possible for an organization to maximize uptime and production. With reduced costs and increased uptime potential, maintenance transforms from a drag on budgets to a business value add.
