Organizations on the path to implementing or improving their Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) enter a process that can be fraught with challenges and unexpected pitfalls. Many of these initiatives fail and can cause organizations significant expense to unwind efforts. In our experience, many of these issues can be avoided by focusing of a few key levers of change prior to the CMMS implementation. These levers are:
- Defining a Maintenance Operating Model
- Implementing Maintenance Strategies
- Integrating Processes within the Value Chain
- Building Capability to Manage Equipment and Maintenance Data
- Clear Governance to Manage Change
- Setting Groundwork with Staff
These levers serve as not only the basis for setting as strong foundation for the CMMS, but can help operations and maintenance organizations to take significant steps toward improvement. In the attached white paper, we delve into the details of each of these levers and offer suggestions for how organizations can pursue these in advance of CMMS implementation. Read more.
