If you are new to the concept of CMMS, here’s a short explanation of what it means. CMMS is a software application that centralizes maintenance-related records and facilitates the process of maintenance operations. The core function of CMMS is ultimately to optimize the usability and availability of physical assets like machinery, communication, plant infrastructures, vehicles, and other assets. CMMS are common in a lot of industries, including manufacturing, transportation, construction, power generation, oil and gas, and other industries where critical assets are vital.
At its core, a CMMS’s specialty is database management. The module built within CMMS allows businesses to organize information about the assets the business is charged with maintaining, as well as equipment, materials, and other resources.
CMMS feature various support functions, which enable the following capabilities:
