eMaint CMMS was chosen by Doug in May, 2009 based on its flexibility, customizable fields, and ease of use. The system also allowed Doug to introduce new features gradually so that training could be done at a manageable pace. Currently, the eMaint system helps generate, assign and close out scheduled and corrective work as well as managing work requests. Rapid City implemented the work request “weblink” which allows tenants and employees to submit a request by clicking a link on their website.
Curry was able to readily enter PM procedures into the system by copying and pasting from the FAA website. PMs are now generated automatically and Shift Chiefs can effortlessly assign open work orders at the start of their shift. Work orders are prioritized by type, allowing safety issues to be addressed first.
