The information of the CMMS is intended to help maintenance workers do their jobs more effectively and to help management make informed decisions.
CMMS data may also be used to verify regulatory compliance. To properly control the maintenance of a facility, information is required to analyze what is occurring. A CMMS also allows for record keeping, to track completed and assigned tasks in a timely and cost-effective manner.
With improved technology and increasing competition, more and more companies are switching to CMMS vs using manual methods to track and organize information.
The different components of a CMMS include but are not limited to:
- Equipment data management
- Preventive maintenance
- Work order system
- Vendor management
- Inventory control
- Asset tracking
