A CMMS, Computerised Maintenance Management System, is a computer software tool for maintenance functions. It is used by management teams to track engineering and maintenance activities and costs and to plan and control the repair, replacement and remodelling of their equipment and properties. Vitally, the visualisation of equipment condition in the form of graphs, dials or maps allows users to make informed decisions about resource allocation. CMMS software also supports predictive and seamless preventive maintenance. For example, it can be connected to alarms on machinery so that when an alarm sounds CMMS will automatically send notifications to your team about the problem encountered.
Thousands of businesses rely on a solid CMMS to manage their maintenance functions. This software bridges the gap between the different software programs used to manage a diverse group of employees, contractors and machines. Through a single portal, a CMMS can integrate functions from multiple practice areas, including production scheduling, asset management, data management and more.
