Effective resource management and reliable equipment are essential for optimum plant performance. Computer-Managed Maintenance Systems goes beyond the simple selection and implementation of a CMMS. It also defines the changes in infrastructure, management philosophy and employee skills that must be implemented to gain maximum benefits from the CMMS. The book is designed to address the information needs of all levels of plant management. In this new edition, the authors have added a chapter specifically on the latest technology, Application Solution Providers (ASP) that has revolutionized the way CMMS are used and the benefits they can offer to a business. This solution provides integrated software, hardware and networking technology along with Information Technology (IT) consulting services into an outsourced package. A new appendix on Key Performance Indicators has also been added. Comprehensive, practical guide that covers selection, justification, and implementation of an effective CMMS in any facility All levels of plant management will find useful information in this step-by-step guideIncludes a new chapter on ASP technologies

A CMMS is an integrated set of computer programs and data files used to efficiently govern the massive amounts of data generated by maintenance, inventory control, and purchasing. With a CMMS in place, you will effectively manage both the human and capital resources in your plant. Now you can: trace materials used and track their costs; maintain optimum, cost-effective inventory levels; better utilize labor; automatically create maintenance histories; and make maintenance cost data readily accessible in a variety of formats.

Plant engineers and maintenance managers know from experience: All manufacturing equipment will break down, often at the worst possible moment. To survive in todays lean-and-mean manufacturing environment, companies must head off these breakdowns with a preventive-maintenance management program that is both systematic and flexible and geared toward minimizing downtime and maximizing equipment life. Fundamentals of Preventive Maintenance provides readers with an easy-to-follow, economically sensible maintenance and workorder management program. This results-driven guidebook outlines a 7-step process for designing and implementing the program, describing what needs to be done -- and why. Designed to transform an often unwieldy program into one that can be effectively managed, it provides hands-on techniques for: * Establishing critical scheduling protocols* Managing the daily workorder schedule* Developing and issuing preventive maintenance workorders* Monitoring the program and making improvement
