Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS)

A computerized maintenance management system, CMMS is a software package that allows organizations to control, optimize, and verify their maintenance activities to keep accurate and timely accounts of maintenance activities. A cost-effective solution overseeing all maintenance activities, CMMS records what jobs have been done, schedules what jobs need to be done in the future, keeps track of all relevant information to maintenance work, records costs of labour and material on a per-job and per-machine basis and helps in making effective management decisions. CMMS is an effective tool allowing organizations to use their resources more productively by helping maintenance departments substantially increase labor productivity, decrease inventory needs and resulting overhead costs, reduce equipment downtime by eliminating waste and spotting repair trends and provide the kind of feedback needed to continue making improvements.
