Advantages through maintenance software?
During the last plant technology has developed greatly. Since then, optimal maintenance in larger companies can hardly be managed without maintenance software. The condition of individual assemblies and components is more difficult to determine than it was years ago because modern plants are more complex. As a result, there are more weak points that need to be found.
In addition maintenance software helps to ensure high technical availability of plants. Many companies see maintenance only as a cost driver. However, ensuring productivity and quality is of enormous importance to remain competitive. Unintentional system failures lead to far higher costs and production losses. Before that happens, maintenance software should be deployed.
With the right digital software, overstock and unnecessary parts can be reduced by up to 25% and machine utilization can be increased by up to 5%. Furthermore with optimal resource planning and targeted deployment planning for different measures, a company with maintenance software gets better effectiveness of employees and resources.
Automated tracking and scheduling of maintenance activities enables service providers to act early, reducing downtime and increasing operational efficiencies.
Maintenance applications can be easily and practically automated with CMMS software. Service calls for planned maintenance are monitored and completed work orders are converted directly into invoices.
The software provides all the data to identify all inefficient processes and costly assets and to define cost-effective maintenance strategies. The service life is extended by the mobile maintenance software. Entrepreneurs therefore contribute to environmental protection and can save costs for new devices.
All maintenance issues ever recorded and actions taken to resolve an issue – are available. The data displayed can be adapted to changing requirements at any time. Reports are created and customized by the report generator.
Thanks to the mobility of the software, all maintenance tasks can be conveniently viewed by anyone on a tablet or cell phone, no matter where the employees and those responsible are located. Objects, spare parts, orders and error messages can be scanned. Photos can be taken via a built-in camera and automatically stored with the respective data set.
Which industries benefit from the use of software for maintenance planning?
Maintenance has now become a key factor for competitiveness. Manufacturing companies are characterized by a high degree of automation and are therefore dependent on optimum system availability. A digital maintenance solution enables this availability through coordinated maintenance management.
Depending on the condition of the system as well as maintenance work must be scheduled. This is possible by using our modern maintenance software MAIN-TOOL. Today, no medium-sized or large company can do without the advantages of mobile maintenance software. The applications lead to a reduction in machine downtime, also lower maintenance costs and in addition increase productivity.
The software is suitable for all industry such as specific requirements, whether in the food industry, logistics and transport, energy and environment, or the oil and chemical industry.
Modern maintenance software should include what features?
Our user-friendly, simple system is what makes our MAIN-TOOL maintenance software so successful. Also easy to handle, MAIN-TOOL is better to handle for those who have to work with it on a daily basis.
To ensure that all maintenance and repair tasks can be carried out as efficiently as possible, the plant operator and maintenance manager need to see the whole picture. This can only be achieved with extensive maintenance monitoring, in which the availability of resources can be included in the planning as well as the provision of a large number of stored information and empirical values.
Aditionally modern maintenance software makes it easy to manage extensive and important information regarding maintenance work completely digitally. The maintenance managers are thus able to structure maintenance management.
The work orders give your employee the opportunity to view all information about their upcoming work with the mobile device. In addition to the functions already known from previous versions, such as reporting back on resources and articles, mobile users now have the option of starting and ending their working hours with a button. This saves the creation of a confirmation line and enables the working time to be determined to the minute.
We have completely revised the inventory in the MAIN-TOOL app. The new approach starts with the storage location and, if necessary, storage space and not with the article as before. Furthermore, an item no longer has to be inventoried in its base unit stored in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central.
Fault and defect recording is a completely new function in the MAIN-TOOL app. The mobile user can report, categorize and comment on a malfunction both when working through the checklists and via the main menu for a technical component. A work order can then be generated from the fault report in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central.
The article information is also new in the MAIN-TOOL app and offers information about the article itself, as well as the stock in the warehouse or in a storage location.
MAIN-TOOL is delivered as standard with three different user roles that offer you different assignment options. You have the option of working with activity-relevant filter criteria and assigning user roles to your objects and departments.
