Efficiency is the dream when it comes to dealing with a work order. Being able to quickly find and visualize your assets, equipment and parts is very important. Some asset-intensive organizations are still using ancient methods of locating assets and equipment. However, there are many ways you can increase wrench time and save in ongoing maintenance and operations cost by providing maintenance personnel with better visualization of data.

  1. Illustrated Parts Catalog

When creating maintenance plans, tasks lists or BOMs,  maintenance personnel often require spare part information particularly from a maintenance parts catalog. Maintenance personnel usually have to waste time looking for a parts catalogue online or on paper. With easy access to all information in a single place linked to all assets, maintenance workers will ultimately save wrench time.

  1. Better Visualization of Parts Selection for Work Orders

An electronic parts catalogue is convenient and efficient when it comes to locating the part information. When you’re creating a work order in an EAM or CMMS system, your maintenance staff need to include that information for the work to be performed. If your parts catalogue isn’t easily accessible, they lose a lot of their time searching for it. You can increase your wrench time by executing work faster and reducing errors with easy access to the electronic parts catalogue.

  1. Build BOMs from Vendor-Recommended Spare Parts Lists

Maintenance staff in asset-intensive companies are challenged to build comprehensive maintenance data for assets, including complete and accurate bills of materials. When access to vendor documentation is limited, building a BOM is time consuming. Finding a way to easily view the list of vendor-recommended spare parts for an asset in the visual parts catalog allows your maintenance personnel to build and update BOMs faster.

  1. Virtual Plant Navigation

In an asset-intensive organization, maintenance personnel will often need to visit the location to ensure the correct equipment and parts have been identified wasting a lot of time. Through a online plant map that allows for navigation through a large facility, your maintenance staff can find and select equipment and locations faster and more accurately.
