To create a real competitive advantage, an organisation has to achieve optimum performance from its asset base, with simultaneous cost and risk reduction. To enable, track and improve these elements, you need an Enterprise Asset Management system (EAMS) or Computerised Maintenance Management system.
After the careful and methodical selection of your fit for purpose EAM system, implementation takes place. This involves setting up the chosen software system and populating it with the correct asset data. It is especially important that your employees can input the data in the new maintenance management system and work with the outputs.
We pay special attention to giving the IT team all the information they need to support the engineering team with the set-up and maintenance of the system.
Pragma can support you in implementing your maintenance management system and help with successfully integrating your EAM with other systems such as HRM, procurement, GEO special software and finance, and the technicalities of SaaS.
Approach to implementing the maintenance management system. This is what we do when implementing an EAMS or CMMS:
– Develop and implement an appropriate asset management system configuration strategy, alongside standards manuals and a blueprint.
– Implement the system in support and enablement of the maintenance management function.
– Establish an accurate asset register.
– Implement necessary work planning and control processes (daily/weekly/monthly) to ensure effective resource utilisation.
– Implement asset care plans (preventative maintenance) for identified assets using OEM recommended plans and inputs from your staff.
– Implement spare parts administration processes to ensure effective storage, purchasing, requisitioning and issuing of spare parts.
– Work with your team to design and develop reports for reporting and data analysis.
– Train and upskill those employees who will use the system.
