What is a Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS)?
A Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) is software that enables real estate owners and service providers to operate and maintain their buildings and technical assets in an efficient, cost effective, and compliant way. Benefits of CMMS software include forecasting, planning, and evaluating any type of maintenance work, either contracted or delivered by internal maintenance staff.
CMMS - what you need to know
A Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) ensures a timely execution of maintenance work with objective asset condition assessments. Once the actual condition of an asset is assessed and scored, a CMMS automatically calculates and schedules the required maintenance. Extensive maintenance libraries of activities, deterioration curves, and cost catalogues feed the CMMS software with data and intelligence to ensure just-in-time maintenance execution.
Due to the complexity of maintenance legislation, execution of maintenance work needs to be planned, monitored, and documented with great care. A CMMS supports maintenance planners, engineers, and supervisors with tools and technology that ensure streamlined and compliant execution of work within a robust maintenance management system.
