A Resource for the Maintenance Industry

CMMS Terminology

Asset maintenance software: This offers companies a way to maintain all of their assets, physical and otherwise.

Asset management software: Lack of proper management can depreciate the value of a company’s assets if not decimate it entirely. By managing assets through this software, companies can enhance their performance, cut capital and operating costs, prolong the life of their assets, and ultimately bolster their ROA.

Understanding CMMS

At its core, Computerized Maintenance Management Systems, or CMMS software provides a database. Through this database, companies can automate a range of different internal operations and, at the end of the day, improve their bottom line. The software allows for maintenance and work order scheduling, inventory tracking and control, and greater regulatory and safety compliance, among many other things.

What is CMMS?

Every company faces a challenge in its operations from time to time. There are those instances when spare parts can’t be located, seemingly sequestered in some phantom storeroom. It can be a struggle to remember when machines need maintenance.  And trying to keep up with writing out work order after work order can be tedious. CMMS and or EAM makes all of this and more a thing of the past.

In the following white paper, we discuss current challenges in the wind industry, the solutions a robust maintenance management program or CMMS software solution can provide, and future developments in the sphere, as the wind industry continues to move towards a larger share of the total energy marketplace.
