Excel Without Microsoft Excel

Do you want your asset-intensive business to excel? Then Microsoft Excel is not the platform you should be using to manage your asset and maintenance master data, there are better options. If you are using Excel, then you probably struggle to view the data you need for maintenance and equipment analysis. You may have inefficiencies in collecting and reporting data, especially when multiple people are involved in reporting the data. Chances are, you aren’t able to use data to make timely decisions that would save money and time in manufacturing and maintenance processes.

Maintenance Efficiency

A CMMS system will allow users to schedule, assign and close work orders easily so that maintenance can be planned and completed efficiently. When maintenance planning is well-organized in advance then processes move from reactive maintenance to preventive maintenance. Workers can manage repairs and routine maintenance easily, and they will be less likely to be double booked or unable to do their work for something like the unavailability of tools. In addition, all the information they need will be readily accessible and organized so that less time is spent searching for documents. You won’t achieve any of these benefits if you load poor quality master data into your CMMS from a generic spreadsheet template.

Visualization of Asset and Maintenance Data

Data availability for more than one person is incredibly important because the decision makers are not always the same people that are inputting the data. You need a solution that allows for multiple people to access and edit data in real time. Additionally, a good solution will allow users to pull reports quickly which allows for improved standards compliance and smoother preparation for audits with traceable maintenance history. When data is easy to visualize, it becomes easier to manage spare parts inventory and build maintenance BOMs.
