A CMMS is a type of software that various organizations use to manage their assets. Aside from keeping detailed records of these assets’ basic information, such as asset name, number, location, and description, CMMS software is also capable of tracking assets’ historical data, condition and risk scores, service requests and work orders, and more.
Adopting a CMMS software means you’ll have all of your crucial data in one place, allowing for authorized people in your organization to keep a handle on all of the goings-on of your asset processes. With a CMMS, there’s no need to rely on keeping everything on paper; you can track and schedule maintenance on an automatic basis while notifying the relevant people instantaneously.
Implementing a CMMS involves a few different stages, all of which require various amounts of time to complete. This varies on a case-by-case basis, but typically, the time it takes between determining the scope of your CMMS needs and going live can take between a few months to a few years. This can be even longer, depending on if you count continuous training that CMMS vendors typically provide after launch. As you might ascertain, CMMS implementation is a lengthy process, but working with a capable CMMS vendor and maintaining good communication with your organization makes undertaking this process much easier.
CMMS works as a digitized version of asset records. It can be used to store asset information and historical data; it can also be used to schedule maintenance in order to keep these assets in the best shape possible.
Any industry that requires equipment upkeep can utilize a CMMS. Some of these industries include water, wastewater, manufacturing, facilities, public works, utilities, parks and recreation, traffic and transportation, fleet management and more.
CMMS software typically includes features such as work order costing and tracking, maintenance scheduling, asset and warehouse inventory tracking, and asset recordkeeping. Some CMMS software might also have other features that make it more suited to enterprise asset management, such as AM planning functions or condition and risk calculation.
Using a CMMS makes a huge difference when it comes to asset upkeep. CMMS software allows for organizations to practice proactive maintenance, meaning that they can forecast asset issues and schedule maintenance accordingly. This is exponentially more cost, time, and labor effective than reactive maintenance, which is only done when an asset experiences unexpected downtime or failure. The fact that CMMS is computerized also means that data can be tracked and recorded much more easily than if an organization kept data on paper.
There are three challenges organizations typically encounter when adopting and utilizing CMMS: change management, organizational alignment, and data quality. Change management is a top concern – those who have to switch to using a new CMMS after relying on paper on a different software almost never embrace the use of a new software. In the same vein, organizational alignment is also a big concern, as getting users to understand the reasons behind using a new software is no simple task. Finally, data quality is also a challenge in that the cleanup process behind data migration when switching from one software to another has the potential to delay the migration process.
ERPs and CMMS can be used in tandem in order to manage different facets of an organization. While a CMMS is focused on maintenance activity, such as work orders and inspections, ERPs focus on items such as finances and HR tasks. Using both types of software makes great sense for many organizations; using an EAM-capable solution is even better, since EAM software is equipped to be able to manage all of these items together.
Transitioning from a paper-based system to a CMMS might be an arduous process, but it’s well worth it. Doing so involves the same steps as adopting any CMMS, from determining the scope of your project to undergoing continuous training post-launch to ensure your users are getting what they need out of the system.
When selecting a CMMS for use within your organization, your number one priority should always be selecting a CMMS that fulfills your specific needs by way of offering functions that fulfill those needs. These might include features such as a user-friendly UI, configurability, mobility, and a strong training and support system, all of which contribute to a strong and reliable long-term CMMS implementation solution.
The bottom line is that CMMS implementation is always a smart financial decision for any organization that manages assets. CMMS software allows you to minimize unexpected downtime and lengthen the lifetimes of your assets, ensuring that you save money and time in the long run.
Some CMMS offer mobile options so that field staff can access the asset management database even if they’re on the move. NEXGEN is one of these options; we offer mobile applications for both iOS and Android, and our cloud-based platform means that you can access NEXGEN from anywhere.
CMMS software developers often provide ongoing support and training for their users as they ease into using their CMMS. NEXGEN itself has its own easily-accessible support team with the opportunity for ongoing training, which helps NEXGEN users make the most of their software all the way from implementation to go-live and beyond.
CMMS often offers functionalities related to all of these items. NEXGEN offers Preventive Maintenance, Work Order, and Inventory modules, all of which act as places where organizations can track their PM schedules, work order histories, and item inventories so they can get exact numbers regarding quantities, costs, and maintenance as they execute their day-to-day operations.
