After coming on board as eMaint clients in 2014, Dana Corp. imported their assets, configured the system to suit their needs, and trained over 250 end users–all within a four month period. A high priority during the implementation was to make the transition seamless for the end users, so Dana Corp. tailored their forms to look very similar to their previous system, and had an eMaint Trainer come on site for three days to train team leaders, the maintenance team, and the general staff.
The company’s implementation process entailed creating customized emergency, safety and PM work order forms, building “Bills of Materials” for all assets, and setting up robust dashboards. The team uses dashboard widgets to analyze MTBF, MTTR and other KPIs, as well as to upload educational and safety videos for technicians to watch during their shifts. “It makes it really easy for us to have everything in one central location, including our training videos. Our technicians can do everything right from within eMaint,” said Craig Linthicum.
