Maintenance CMMS Software PM List

Using Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance software training videos educate on how to use the PM system once it has been configured. This CMMS program, unlike any other, has a module dedicated to calendar-based preventive maintenance. There is, of course, also a full work order system too. PMs may be performed in either the work order or the PM screens.:

  • Learn the basics of using the preventative maintenance screen.
  • How to close preventive maintenance tasks.
  • Learn to print PM lists and the various formats and options associated with printing PMs.

How to Use Work Orders

Work orders are the basic unit of work in any CMMS software program. Any type of work may be performed as a work order, including preventative maintenance type work. Work order templates are boiler-plate copies of work orders used to create new work order. These new work order are created based upon a triggering mechanism (either a scheduled event or a metered event). Work orders may be linked to parts lists, file attachments and have up to 2 GB of text data linked to each work order. Work orders may also be linked to PMs and equipment failures.:

  • Learn the basics of using the preventative maintenance screen.
  • How to close preventive maintenance tasks.
  • Learn to print PM lists and the various formats and options associated with printing PMs.

Inventory Management Instructional Videos

Inventory management software is included in the CMMS package as part of the base software program. The inventory management module is used for managing all spare parts. This is a complete inventory management system. There are eight (8) user-defined fields in addition to all the expected fields such as minimum stock, maximum stock, reorder level, reorder quantity, preferred vendor and more. Spares may be linked to work orders, preventive maintenance, down time or just the equipment. Equipment parts lists are available as are multiple filtering and reporting functions.

 

The below CMMS software training videos instruct on:

  1. Basic inventory management.
  2. Inventory search capabilities.
  3. Linking spare parts to work.

Purchase Order, Purchase Requisition Training

The CMMS contains a complete purchasing software system rivaling  ERP systems costing many times what this system costs. The power of this purchasing software rests on it's role-based permission system. Purchasing roles are assigned to users in any combination or based upon one role. For example maintenance technicians may be assigned to a role where they may only requisition parts. Another user may approve the line items on the requisition. Yet another person may be a able to create a purchase order and so on. These roles may be assigned all to one trusted person if needed too. As spares are received the inventory data is automatically updated.

Below are a few CMMS software training videos that instruct on:

  1. Purchase requisition taring and RFQ instruction.
  2. How to approve line items on a requisition for purchase.
  3. How to create and manage purchase orders.

Equipment Failure Tracking (Down Time) Training

Equipment failure tracking is a module unique to MaintSmart. No other CMMS software offers a dedicated equipment failure tracking capability. This module guides the maintenance manager not only to the trouble equipment or issues with personnel but also identifies which problems are costing the organization as a whole the most money. There is extensive reporting and charting for down time. Reliability analysis and OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) are possible because of this down time collecting capability.

The below videos instruct on:

  1. Equipment failure tracking (down time) analysis.
  2. How to use down time reporting functions.
  3. Instruction on OEE (overall equipment effectiveness).

Print/Email Scheduler and Other CMMS Software Training Topics

The print/email scheduler automatically issues most reports, including current preventive maintenance tasks, new work orders, directly to email or one or more printers. These schedules are based upon a floating data range defined by the user.

Examples could be:

  • Every 7 days print out weekly PMs.
  • On the second Tuesday of every month send a down time report with chart to the plan manager but only include down time for past 14 days.
  • Create a new work order on the 10th of every month to replace filters in HVAC unit. Include a parts list and SOPs.

The query-builder is available for all data in the entire CMMS. This query-builder is drag and drop and very simple to use and benefit from. A corresponding chart is created automatically with queried data.

Additional videos include:

  1. How to create automatic work orders from the scheduler.
  2. How to create automatic work orders from meters.
  3. How to configure the meter and scheduler scanner.
