Save Time and Money with a CMMS Maintenance Program

CMMS programs have been a valuable asset management tool since the 1980’s, but despite their widespread proliferation, many facilities and maintenance professionals still haven’t realized the full potential that modern CMMS programs bring to the table. It’s not uncommon for companies to mistakenly see their existing CMMS as just a work order printing press.

Reliability Cornerstones - Eliminate the Firefighting! Webinar

Wednesday, November 14, 20121:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. CST

Tired of firefighting?  Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, November 14th at 1:00 p.m. CST to learn how to make firefighting a thing of the past by having your maintenance department implement the following 4 reliability cornerstones:

  • Preventive Maintenance (PM)
  • Predictive Maintenance (PdM)
  • Maintenance Storerooms
  • Reporting

PMs – Ensure that equipment is properly maintained with inspection, lubrication and calibration work orders.  If every maintenance department had a good lubrication program, 60-80% of all mechanical failures would be eliminated.

PdMs – Get notified before a piece of equipment fails by taking advantage of thermography, lubrication analysis, ultrasound, etc.

Maintenance Storerooms – Ensure that the right parts are available at the right time and are easy to find.

Reporting – What does not get measured does not get managed.

Once your maintenance department has taken advantage of these 4 reliability cornerstones, your plant will achieve maintenance and reliability success.

Webinar Announcement: The Importance of Tracking Work!

Join us on Wednesday, September 12th at 1:00 p.m. CST for a webinar to learn about the importance of tracking work in a facility or a manufacturing plant and why companies cannot afford NOT to track work, especially if any of following statements hold true:

  • Downtime is high.
  • Internal and external customers are dissatisfied.
  • There’s no time to track anything, including work!
  • There’s no time to implement a work tracking system.

The presenter will not only discuss the importance of tracking work, but show how easily it can be tracked using MVP Plant* CMMS software by CMMS Data Group. Using MVP Plant, the presenter will walk participants through the process of tracking work, from creating work requests to setting up preventive maintenance (PM) and predictive maintenance (PdM) work orders. Then, the presenter will show participants how to track 100% of all work accurately, paperlessly and wirelessly (paperless work orders) using MVP Capture, a wireless barcode solution add-on for MVP Plant. The presenter will finish the webinar by generating various reports pinpointing where a company should focus its attention to increase reliability and save time and money.
