Vocabulary is important. Saying that might seem too academic, but when it comes to maintenance and equipment, it really is. Why? Because using the right words can be the difference between a quick repair and an expensive replacement.
Running a fast-paced facility? Then you know there are always times where things just don't go as planned. Things get overlooked, mistakes compound, emergencies divert all attention without warning — the list goes on. But Maintenance Managers can do plenty to plan ahead and mitigate disaster. Here are the three most vital things you can do to keep the facility running smoothly.
This year has seen many natural disasters around the globe. From the devastating "Camp Fire" wildfires in California to the strongest hurricane to hit the the east coast in almost 30 years , it's clear that the best defense against the unexpected is to be prepared.
If you've already heard of CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Software), you're already aware of the value it can bring to your maintenance department. From work orders and preventative maintenance capabilities to document storage and asset tracking, there's no doubt CMMS can dramatically improve facility maintenance.
What if you could anticipate when your equipment will fail or leave you with unnecessary downtime? By combining CMMS and predictive maintenance into one system, you have the ability to evaluate when your equipment might break down so that you can be on top of repairs or replacements.
