Excel vs. CMMS: 7 Reasons You Should Switch To CMMS Software

There are a lot of companies managing their asset maintenance through Excel. For a long time, Excel was the most practical solution for tracking how often items had been maintained, what the maintenance cost was, how many spare parts you had, the locations of assets, etc. Computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) can do all of the things Excel did, and a whole lot more. We’re going to look at seven reasons you should switch to a CMMS:

User-Friendly Software

Excel is a lot of things, but user-friendly isn’t one of them. The learning curve can be steep, and modifying your maintenance management files can be a real pain. CMMS, on the other hand, are designed to be user-friendly, with easy-to-use graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and several features that make tracking data and running reports as easy as pie.

Work Order Management

With Excel, your work order management probably looks something like this: you see that something is due for maintenance, you send a text out to find a technician to work on it, you get a text back, and you keep texting back and forth.

Work order management through CMMS makes that whole process much easier. When you see something is due for maintenance, you can simply touch the item on the app, and assign a work order to a technician. You’ll then be automatically updated on the progress of the work order until its completion. The app communicates everything for you, and it makes scheduling work orders much easier – you can see all existing work orders in one place, and can also look at work order history.

Keep Everything in One Place

Many companies keep different Excel files for inventory in different locations. With a CMMS, every location is on the same program, so all you have to do is select which location you want to view or edit. No more sending files back and forth between locations – everything that has something to do with maintenance can be found in your CMMS.

Keep Things Accessible

It’s almost impossible to know who will end up needing access to your maintenance files, or where they’ll be when they do need access. With a CMMS, you can grant varying degrees of access to stakeholders who need to view or edit maintenance files. What’s more, CMMS solutions are cloud-based, so even if you’re halfway across the world, you can send work orders in case of emergencies or other unexpected occurrences.

Preventive Maintenance 

Your CMMS can automatically schedule and send out work orders for preventive maintenance. Best of all, you can set a wide variety of triggers which, when activated, send out those preventive maintenance orders. Most businesses opt for preventive maintenance every x days, for the sake of simplicity. With a CMMS, it’s easy to instead trigger preventive maintenance for every x time something is used, or for every y miles or kilometres a vehicle is driven, among others.

Improve Data Management

You’ve probably heard about how Big Data can be used to create more accurate predictions. That’s true on a micro scale as well – the more quality data you can collect and compare, the better the insights you can glean from that data. As a consequence of keeping all of your data in the same place, a CMMS can use that data to analyze your maintenance patterns and help you make predictions about when an item should be maintained, and the overall costs of repairing or replacing the item.

Automated Reporting

Your CMMS will come with a number of reports automatically built in, from overdue work orders to your monthly maintenance costs. These reports will also automatically be saved in your CMMS, something that isn’t nearly as easy to do with Excel. 

There are many other great reasons to switch to CMMS software, from how easy it is to save data to how automation reduces the number of human errors you’ll see, making information more reliable and accurate. CMMS are also incredibly customizable, so whatever industry you’re in, we can help create a solution that’s perfect for you. 

3 Tips For Using A CMMS In The Food & Beverage Industry

Many industries have stringent requirements for asset and equipment maintenance, but it’s possible that none are as strict as the requirements in the food and beverage industry (save, perhaps, those of the pharmaceutical industry). When you’re manufacturing consumables, it’s understandable that clean, well-maintained machinery is an absolute must.

Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) are a method by which you can make your asset maintenance more efficient. Describing all of the functions of a CMMS is outside the scope of what we want to explore here, but in short, they’re a type of restaurant maintenance software that allows you to automate work orders and workflow, track equipment and equipment maintenance (as well as spare parts), and give you insights into when a piece of equipment may need to be maintained, repaired, or replaced.

We’re going to look at three tips to improve your business’s efficiency through the use of a CMMS. One of its core functionalities is to help you with all forms of maintenance.

Use Work Orders to Your Advantage

One of the core functionalities of a CMMS is work order management. In brief, you can use work order management to instantly send work to a given technician, and to see what work is scheduled for a particular piece of equipment.

This can be a massive boon, especially if you’re also using your CMMS to schedule preventive maintenance. Imagine this scenario – you’ve got a brew system with preventive maintenance scheduled, and three days later, a pump is scheduled to be replaced on the same system. Instead of wasting work doing preventive maintenance on the pump, you can reschedule the maintenance for the same day that the pump is being replaced. 

By actively viewing all of the work scheduled on a piece of equipment, you’ll be able to find a lot of efficiencies you may have been missing before.

Automating Maintenance

As alluded to earlier, you can use CMMS to automate preventive maintenance on your equipment. One of the biggest advantages of CMMS is the use of customizable triggers. These triggers allow you to customize preventive maintenance beyond your typical “once per time period” schedule.

For example, instead of maintaining a piece of equipment on a monthly basis, you can instead opt to maintain it after X amount of use, tracking usage in your CMMS. This is great for pieces of equipment that you use a lot sometimes, but less other times. Triggers are also customizable; you might, for example, connect your CMMS with a spreadsheet that tracks temperature fluctuations in a cooling unit, and triggers preventive maintenance when those temperatures fall out of a normal range for X amount of days in a row.

Automating maintenance can help you ensure you’re always meeting regulatory compliance goals and can help your equipment last longer.

Go Paperless

You should transfer all of your inventory, be it equipment or spare parts, onto your CMMS. A CMMS is accessible from anywhere, and you can create specific locations into which you input all of your equipment. This makes it much easier to track where equipment is, which is especially useful if you have multiple warehouses/production facilities. 

Another advantage is accessibility – you’ll be able to edit the contents of your CMMS on the fly, no matter where you are, and you can give access to other people on your team. That means that even if technicians are away from the site, or you need to edit things while you’re in another country, you can do so easily.

ATEX Rated Maintenance Management System

What we are trying to solve

We need to ensure that all equipment is managed properly. The planned preventative maintenance schedule, follow-on work orders and the reactive maintenance schedule must be managed, along with any spare parts which are needed to ensure that the systems are as reliable as possible.

The site is subject to regulations, with a number of rated areas. This means that, for example, any equipment that is rated must be flagged as such, and the rating of that equipment recorded.  The basic maintenance process that is will be following is described in the diagram below.

Structure of the organization

There are two divisions: Production and Care & Maintenance. Both of these divisions are different legal entities, and so need to be managed completely separately from a financial perspective. Most of the equipment is associated with the production division, with a much smaller equipment base in the Care & Maintenance division.

The maintenance technicians will be working for a central organisation – a shared services group – and will then be despatched to work on the various equipment as needed. The maintainers will usually (but not exclusively) work in either the production area or in the Care & Maintenance area.

Interface to finance

There will be no interface to any finance system as this is a temporary system until the ERP system is implemented. It will be important to produce financial reporting from the system however, so that the cost of any maintenance tasks can be accounted for, as well as the cost of maintenance for any particular machine. The reporting should be in both PDF and Excel format ( could be XLSX or CSV format )

Hosting

The system should be cloud hosted, in a GDPR compliant datacentre. System uptime should be close to 100%, with availability on a 24×7 basis as the site will be running 24 hours a day.

Work costing

Each technician will have a cost allocated to them – probably a standard cost per hour. This cost should be used to calculate the total cost of labour for any job. The cost of any materials that is consumed from the store or procured via a PO should also be allocated to the work order. Some work will need a subcontractor, which should also be included along with any costs from purchases that don’t have a PO, for example purchase via credit card.

Equipment costing

All work against a piece of equipment should be costed, and automatically rolled up to the overall equipment costs. It will then be possible to easily see the cost of maintenance for any piece of equipment.

Asset structure

A multi-level asset structure is needed whereby the assets are split down to the following:

  • Area
  • Equipment
  • Item

All spare parts are allocated to the asset on the machine. This item will link to a store stock code, which will be a different number. A single stores stock number can map to many asset numbers. Each field in the structure needs to be an alphanumeric field.

Work orders

The heart of the requirement is the Work Order. All work must be controlled by the Work Order, be that a Planned Maintenance task or a reactive maintenance task. No team member will be able to start work without a work order. Costs are all allocated to the work order. The strategic goal for the system will be to ensure that technicians have some kind of electronic device to access their work orders, however in the short term these will be printed out & handed to the technician. The technician will update the work order after the work is complete back at the office.

Planned Maintenance

Each PM job should have a task list, a parts list and also a checklist which documents any specific checks that need to be made – for example a current reading when a motor is running normally. All parts will either need a stores item number, or details of a PO that should be created. The PM will also be categorized, so that it’s easily possible to understand what kind of PM it is – Safety Critical, Critical, Standard etc. These lists should be printed out (or be available via an app on a tablet or phone) so that they can be used at the workplace & the results of the tests be recorded.

The results of any tests should be held individually so that it’s possible to do trend analysis on the figures, rather than being held as a text field which cannot be reported from. These figures should be linked to the machine and allow, in the future, for an automated collection of data.

Scheduling

Each task ( with the exception of reactive, breakdown maintenance tasks ) will be scheduled & will be allocated to one or more technicians. It should be possible to easily see the workload of each technician as well as the overall tasks that are ongoing during any chosen day. Tasks may be “one-off” tasks or repetitive tasks, based on a time rota. Some equipment may have multiple PMs – maybe a simple PM weekly but then a more in-depth PM on a monthly basis. The system should not issue a weekly PM when a monthly PM is being undertaken in this case. It’s sometimes necessary to “borrow” a technician from one division to another if the workload demands. The system must be able to allocate technicians from one division to a work order in the other division.

The scheduling of maintenance tasks needs to be undertaken on a graphical screen, which will show the loading for each technician & will flag up if the technician is approaching 100% loading. Planning should be on an infinite capacity planning basis, so that the scheduler will be able to over/under load any technician as appropriate. There should be a drag & drop capability to move work items from one day to the next & also to easily reassign work orders to other technicians.

Planning

Each scheduled work order needs to be planned, so that the number of people and also the required parts are all allocated to the job. This will allow the system to manage the stock movements, including procurement of parts in an MRP system.

Improvement work

These small projects will have a number of different tasks, which will be managed as work orders. They all need to be held together so that an overall cost can be collated for the improvement work. These costs must be able to be split between labour costs & parts costs. It must be possible to run a report on all improvement projects to identify the costs of the project. These costs should be split down into internal labour, external labour & parts.

Reactive maintenance

Any breakdown that comes in to the departments should be managed through the system. The exact piece of equipment and fault description should be logged. It should also be possible to allocate spare parts to the reactive maintenance job, time that the technician spends and also the cost of any third party that also needs to be brought in, if needed. This will usually be in the form of the cost of a purchase order that’s sent to the third party to perform some work.

Inspections

One of the vitally important areas of work in the business will be inspection PMs. These are work orders that ensure that the equipment is safe to operate. There will be different categories of inspections, with some being rated as “ critical”, and if these are missed then they should be rated as a “near miss”, and investigated appropriately. It should be easy to get a list of the  Critical inspection=s for the week, and understand which have yet to be completed. A report should also be available that details any missed  Critical inspections that have been missed in any defined period of time.

Recording of work done

It must be possible, for all types of work order, to record the exact work that has been completed and any spare parts that have been consumed. Reactive maintenance should, in addition, have fault codes which can be allocated to the job so that later analysis of the various breakdowns is possible.

Stock

There is a large amount of stock associated with the various equipment that will be installed on-site. All of this stock must be managed. Each piece of stock must be linked to one or more pieces of equipment. The stock must be held in a defined location, and the cost of the item as well as a primary & secondary supplier for that item. Lead-time must also be managed.

Any stock withdrawal should be allocated to a piece of equipment. The system should manage the stock levels, so that if any item reaches a defined level, then the system will alert the stock controller that an order needs to be placed for that item. The system must be able to create a report of all items, grouped by supplier, so that the stores controller is able to easily manage the reordering process. This stock management facility also needs to look ahead into the future work orders that are being scheduled to ensure that the required spare parts will be available for the technicians to carry out the work when it’s due. It should be possible to hold phantom stock items, which have a zero stock holding. When a demand is made on these items, the system will then flag up that the item needs to be purchased.

Stock purchased will generally be procured via a purchase order. The stock system should issue a PO for any purchase, and if a purchase is needed for a non-stock item, then a PO will normally be issued for that part too. There may be occasions where a PO will not be issued – the cost of the part in this case also needs to be captured. Any stock item should be replaced with a part that’s an exact replacement. If an equivalent part is to be used, then a formal change management process must be undertaken. No part can be changed for an equivalent without the change management process being completed and documented. This documentation should be attached to the stock part in the store.

All rated stock should be flagged as such, in a way that is easy for the viewer to see that this part needs to be carefully managed.

Consignment stock

There are some items – such as nuts & bolts – which are held on consignment stock. These items are generally of low value, and will not be recorded by the system against any work order.

Stock numbering

Stock will be numbered in an 8 digit alphanumerical sequence.

Stock locations

Each part will be held in its own stores location. There could be multiple warehouses:

  • Main store
  • PDU store

The parts will have their own locations in the warehouse. This will be a structured location scheme in the main store:

  • Aisle number
  • Rack number
  • Shelf number
  • Bin number

CMMS: What Is Its Role Within The Company?

In today’s technology-driven world, business moves at a lightning fast pace. Paperwork simply cannot keep up with the speed a company needs to operate efficiently. That’s why CMMS (computerized maintenance management system software) was developed. It’s designed to streamline the process of preserving assets and organizing repairs. But what is a CMMS exactly, and how does it benefit your business?

Ever heard the saying that preventative care is the best care? This style of maintenance helps your business avoid problems before they occur – this is opposed to reactive maintenance, which involves putting out fires after problems have already happened. CMMS software is designed to foresee these problems ahead of time so your company will never lose efficiency or have interrupted service. It’s a way for companies to manage inventory and maintenance on a platform that’s accessible for technicians, managers, and employees. This digital platform can assist your business operations in numerous ways:

It helps manage inventory. Trying to keep up with sales using pen and paper is a nearly impossible task. Even with a spreadsheet, it’s grueling to manage thousands of parts. With CMMS, your entire staff can see what’s in stock and make changes in real-time. It gives you the ability to automate purchases so that you’re never short on essential supplies. Say goodbye to overspending on inventory – CMMS lets you see exactly how much you’re paying, so you can stay within your budget. You’ll also be able to view which machines need spare parts. Leave the guesswork out of inventory management by using CMMS – you’ll know exactly what your business needs, and what it costs.  

Regulate work orders. When essential equipment breaks down, you need it fixed quickly to keep your company functioning. CMMS gives you the ability to record the issues and probable causes behind them, and quickly assign a technician to solve the problem. Managers can access these orders from a desktop or using a mobile app. When a new work order is issued, a technician is notified immediately. 

Keep track of scheduled tasks. When no jobs are missed, your workforce will operate like a well-oiled machine. CMMS software can help everyone keep track of upcoming repairs – this includes the ability to send reminders to those with imminent tasks. The online calendar with color-coded lists makes comprehending work orders easy. Managers will be notified when duties have been completed. 

Make information for audits readily available. A history of every action performed on your assets will be accessible when they’re filed using CMMS. Verifying information will be seamless in the event of an insurance or accident claim. You’ll be able to search and find all tasks performed on an asset in seconds. Using our software, you can achieve ISO certification which shows customers that your brand is consistent and follows industry standards. 

View repair history. With older machines, it’s helpful for technicians to know the source of past problems. Logging repair history into CMMS makes it easier to diagnose the causes of future issues. You’ll also be able to monitor when upcoming maintenance is due. It makes it easy to view all the previous problems with the machine, and how they were fixed. Eliminate the downtime that occurs when an asset malfunctions by using CMMS software to log repair history. 

What kinds of companies can utilize CMMS? When it comes to healthcare, you need a program that can meet the trying demands of this industry. The breakdown of medical equipment can be life-threatening for patients that rely on it. CMMS will track the performance of this vital equipment to prevent outages – and if a repair is needed, a technician will be notified immediately. Property managers will appreciate all the benefits that CMMS has to offer –  it’s nearly impossible to juggle all the requests in multiple buildings without it. Whether it’s managing repairs or scheduling unit cleanings, there are an array of operations that CMMS can help you manage.

Or how about running a restaurant? Preserving kitchen appliances is essential for your operation to keep producing delicious plates. You also need to stay on top of a rapidly depleting food inventory. But there’s more to it than that – you also have to consider regular cleanings of the restrooms and dining areas. To keep customers happy, you’ll also want to have your HVAC systems serviced semi-annually. How do you keep track of all these tasks? CMMS is intended to decrease any headaches that come along with maintenance scheduling. We offer customizable pricing plans to give your company a platform that suits your needs. For entrepreneurs in all industries, this software will bring efficiency and expediency to your company’s asset management. 

Maxpanda offers feature-rich CMMS software that’s user-friendly, fast, and affordable. Does your business need building management software? Our award-winning digital platform is designed to be straightforward, which will quickly improve the productivity of your business operations. It makes scheduled repairs streamlined and accessible to all users involved. We offer 24/7 support so that you’re always covered when you need assistance.

Using preventive maintenance software
