Picture this. You’re a new facilities manager. You have some idea of how to do this, but you know you could be better.
Your machines are the backbone of your entire business. Without them, you wouldn’t be able to take on projects and generate income.
Machine preventative maintenance might sound like a hassle. After all, your maintenance team has enough on their plates. Why bother checking a machine if nothing’s wrong with it?
Most people think of maintenance as putting out fires. But if maintenance is done right, it can actually help prevent fires (literally and figuratively).
Your team can’t afford to wait. You can’t get caught up in the muddle.
It’s not the most glamorous task in your department, but maintaining an accurate maintenance backlog is an essential piece of your company’s puzzle.
There’s a bit of confusion about Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and its necessity (or lack thereof) in company operations. Contrary to some believers, OEE isn’t just a metric that’s nice to have. Rather, with accurate calculations, OEE can add real value to your company’s bottom line.
Maintenance departments largely gauge their effectiveness and success on common metrics. It’s the only way to gain data-driven insights into how your department functions and where you can make improvements.
In today’s digital business environment, there is no shortage of software solutions that can help you run your company. Everything from payroll and hiring to managing EHS and maintenance activities is largely streamlined through thoughtfully-created software and platforms.
A computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) can help companies better leverage their time, money, and other resources to reduce total maintenance costs. From tracking assets like inventory and equipment to monitoring labor costs, a CMMS can help you maximize your maintenance to increase profitability, reliability, and performance.
