Maintenance Management
Maintenance Scheduling, Records, Spare Parts, Staffing, Training, Outside Contracting and Database.

Good maintenance pays off. The reliability of equipment improves while the cost of ownership is reduced. Establishing an effective maintenance management system is one of the most cost effective actions that an owner can make. An effective maintenance management system will maximize the return from your maintenance dollar by identifying ongoing problems and eliminating non-productive maintenance practices.

A good Maintenance Management System is similar to a good Accounting System in that both require coordinated databases to function correctly. The casual observer is tempted to simply buy Generic Maintenance or Accounting programs and modify the operation to fit the software. A true tail wagging dog scenario! In practice, Generic Programs never quite meet the operational needs of an organization and are often abandoned.
