All maintenance facilities have obstacles to overcome when it comes to routine maintenance. It doesn't matter if you run a small facility with a couple of employees or you're in charge of The Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium, which is associated with the United States Navy. 



No matter what type of maintenance facility you are in charge of, it can be made easier to keep up with your equipment and your everyday operations with Equipment Maintenance Software.


U.S. Navy Equipment

This software allows you to know in advance what needs to be done to keep your equipment in tip-top shape so that your facility can run proper and efficiently. In the case of U.S. Navy, they have had issues with everything from paperwork to requirements that don't allow for flexibility.


As mentioned by the Navy Times:  Sailors said they are increasingly mired in the mess that routine maintenance has become. Even things that should be a quick hit — something as simple as laying non-skid surface on a frigate’s tiny O3 level weather deck — is burdened by paperwork, conflicting requirements and the lack of contract flexibility. Similarly, civilians said they have insufficient visibility of what is happening on ships to better assess maintenance issues.


Civilian Business

Now while the United States Navy would have even more hurdles to overcome, a civilian business will find it easier because there is not as much red tape. It simply takes trying out the software and then putting it to use. Instead of preventative maintenance not getting done, the software makes it to where it can be scheduled in advance or given to specific employees.


Coincidentally however, the U.S. Navy has plans to use a similar program that will front load maintenance schedules, etc but unfortunately, it won't be implemented until 2021. Luckily, you don't have to wait that long as a maintenance facility manager in your own company.

In fact, the Navy plans to use sensors for condition-based maintenance which is something else that is offered by Maintenance Care. These sensors allow a facility to diagnose issues before they become more relevant. The United States Government may be a little behind the times when it comes to this type of software but you can get started as early as today and see just how easy it is to run your facility.
