Transitioning from one EAM/CMMS system is an opportunity to improve maintenance productivity and efficiency. Reviewing and rationalizing your PMs is a great place to start. Here are a few checks and considerations worth examining before migrating to your the new EAM/CMMS system.
Reviewing Maintenance Tasks for Accuracy to Improve Scheduling
Accurate scheduling is only possible if you have accurate estimated times for maintenance tasks to complete. Reviewing your estimates to compare against actuals and correcting the estimates is a very useful exercise.
Track Costs and Roll-up Costs more Effectively
Many companies create PMs against large areas or against the entire site itself! This is not helpful for tracking and rolling up costs effectively. It’s also not useful for equipment reliability analysis. Making sure your PMs are tracked at the right level of the asset hierarchy is very useful improvement in connection with a migration. This helps ensure reliability data for critical equipment is tracked alongside the equipment facilitating reliability analysis.
