What is the best CMMS?

Recommended Posts

The best CMMS is the one that you can put to use with less effort than it takes to actually do the physical work it requires.

SO MANY... CMMS require maintenance techs to provide hours of  trivial data input and offer little to actually help them do their jobs.

Great CMMS systems provide:

Instant snapshots (or dashboards) of the status of  ALL your plant's machinery/equipment

Distribute  current Work Order's to respective technicians prioritized to support  the production priorities

Instructions, access to tech manuals, videos etc. for any planned procedure from a tech's phone or tablet

Identify planned work and notify purchasing/stockroom of all required parts so they're available when needed

KPI's to show the entire maintenance department is performing over time.

It's actually more important to understand HOW to put a CMMS system to use to improve your operations than any specific product recommendation.

Hi! Ahmad,

Its upto the organization's vision, what level of expertise want to achieve, SAP is much more integrated in business prospective and Asset Management prospective. Maximo has its limitations and it has got some advantage over customized report. SAP is a knowledge based and much higher level of ERP and its own report. One step ahead SAP can be used over mobile phone and all transactions can be checked and more transparent. It's up to you to decide which ERP you use. EAM could be easily achieved by using SAP.

Hi! Frank,

In my opinion why CMMS is not effective, because CMMS should be used by Operation/Maintenance/ Process/ Finance/ logistic/ EHS/ HR, if it is a maintenance domain then its a failure to the organization's vision. It's not only maintenance domain.

Wish you a very happy new year 2019.

Very true @Frank! I also like your point that too many CMMS's out there force technicians to enter trivial data that is never used...
