5 outstanding benefits of smart maintenance management system
Maintenance management system has outstanding functions and is constantly integrated with modern technologies such as AI, IoT, and AR, bringing many benefits to production enterprises and supporting operation optimization.
What is a maintenance management system?
A maintenance management system is software that centralizes maintenance information and supports maintenance operational processes. It helps to optimize the use of physical devices such as vehicles, machinery, communications, plant infrastructure, and other assets. Maintenance management systems are widely used in manufacturing, oil and gas, electric power, construction, transportation, and other industries where physical infrastructure plays an important role.
The core of this system is the database. A maintenance management system has a data model that organizes information about the assets that need to be serviced, as well as the equipment, materials, and other resources needed to perform maintenance.
Functions of the maintenance management system
The maintenance management system has many outstanding functions and is constantly updated, integrated with modern technologies such as AI (artificial intelligence), AR (augmented reality), etc. However, below are the main functions of the system to help support maintenance management in production environment:
Physical devices are monitored in real-time, support email notifications when problems occur, and have the ability to countdown to scheduled maintenance.
Reports & Analytics
Pre-defined and per-user reports to analyze device health and assist with preventive maintenance.
Maintenance history and all manuals are digitalized so they can be accessed when needed. Modern technologies such as AR are also integrated to make the maintenance process smarter.
5 outstanding benefits of smart maintenance management
Automating manual tasks like ordering parts, replenishing inventory, scheduling shifts, compiling information for audits and other administrative tasks saves time and reduces errors, thereby improving productivity. Work information can be viewed and tracked by stakeholders on mobile devices for flexible work coordination. Dashboards and tracking visualizations are used to easily locate assets, to-dos, people in charge, and time. The distribution and use of materials and resources are also optimized.
Data enables maintenance activities to move from a reactive to proactive approach. Data derived from daily operations as well as sensors and other IoT devices can provide insights into processes and assets, inform prevention and trigger measures, warn before assets are damaged or underperforming.
Documentation, repair manuals, and maintenance procedures can be stored in the system and linked to the respective assets. Capturing and maintaining this information creates consistent processes that standard and preserve that knowledge for transfer to new employees.
Poor compliance audits can affect maintenance operations especially for asset-intensive businesses in general. Maintenance system data makes audits easier by generating responses and reports tailored to requirements.
Safe working environment
The management system can generate consolidated environmental and safety reports with the objective of reducing risks and maintaining a safe operating environment. The data is used to analyze repeated problems or defects, trace and solve problems.
Choosing an effective maintenance management system requires an assessment of functional and technical factors such as data handling and storage capabilities, report types, etc. Besides, businesses must also take cost into consideration to choose the right system supplier.
