Digitize your maintenance management
Digitalization of maintenance is becoming one of the innovative means of organizations to tackle financial, technical, and human issues that are central to their strategy.
With CMMS, your company’s maintenance department is about to undergo a complete revolution and change deeply ingrained habits. As the IT project manager, your role is essential in this transition.
In line with other functions in your organization, such as production and quality, the digitalization of the maintenance function answers the growing need of companies for safety, productivity, availability and reliability of assets, and profitability. It also promotes better information flow and decompartmentalization of services while facilitating team mobility.
Many factors contribute to the success of a digital transformation project and raise the likelihood of your teams adopting the CMMS, which is essential to the automation of maintenance processes:
Maintenance data security
Remote access and mobility
Interoperability of the CMMS
The success of the maintenance function digitalization depends on how well the transition was prepared. As a project manager or IT manager, you play a central role in this digitalization project.
You will have to collaborate closely with the maintenance team members to understand and frame your organization’s needs with respect to the functional reality of the CMMS solutions studied.
Will you be able to organize the implementation of the project and see it through to completion? Will you have the time to do it? Should you just delegate this task? Do you have sufficient human resources to fill in the database and operate the tool? How to deploy the CMMS within the organization? How to make it work?
These questions are not trivial and deserve careful consideration on your part.
Make an informed decision before embarking on your maintenance digitalization project.
As the unique maintenance data repository, CMMS are set to become an integral part of any organization’s information system (IS).
Therefore, it is crucial to study the implementation of a CMMS solution in the information system in its globality. After all, the maintenance department interacts with other departments in the company, such as the quality, purchasing, production, accounting/management/ finance/ management control, human resources, and the list can extend to all the company’s employees who may issue work requests.
Interconnection between the CMMS and the IS has many advantages:
Improvement of the reactivity of the teams
Digital technology is at the heart of the current transformation of the maintenance landscape. New technologies are deployed at all company levels to enable maintenance to understand sticking points better, move towards preventive maintenance, and then use it as a springboard to predictive maintenance.
But beware: to make this leap to Maintenance 4.0, you will have to ensure the interoperability of the different systems, the digital continuity of data, and the preservation of the information system.
Among the major technologies that have a significant impact on the maintenance profession, the following stand out:
IoT and Predictive Analysis
To predict the risk of asset failure.
Robotics and cobotics
To help perform tedious tasks that provide little added value.
To prepare and improve your maintenance work.
To produce on-demand parts for the proper functioning of your assets.
To help and protect technicians during maintenance works.
Digital tablets / Smartphone
To enjoy permanent access to the CMMS and relevant data.
The deployment of Maintenance 4.0 would be impossible without a specialized technical team and its members’ network and digital proficiencies.
You need a high-performance information system that takes into account the company’s processes and benchmarks. Very early on, we sought to forge connections with major players in the IT world, to meet your needs for digital continuity and system interoperability.
