Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) is critical to any well-run facility management team. Unfortunately, all too often the CMMS fails. Here are a few points to consider.
Before jumping into CMMS selection, determine what business processes you are looking to optimize.
Look for existing processes that could be optimized by a CMMS.
Determine your budget availability. Also, are you looking for a one-time purchase or Software as a Service (SaaS).
Be sure you have the support of your senior administration and your IT department before you proceed.
Do you have an existing CMMS platform and if so, what data do you want to see exported into the new CMMS platform? Can the data be imported into your new CMMS platform?
What does your asset registry structure look like? Is the data optimally configured for the CMMS import?
Do you have all the preventative Maintenance programs for the facilities assets?
Will you be scheduling a test period prior to rolling out the CMMS to all your employees?
What training have you planned for during the implementation, and rollout phase?
What annual training contingencies have been identified?
It is critical that the data being imported into the new CMMS is accurate. Buildings and assets will change over time.
Have you explored ways to integrate different data source streams into your CMMS?
