Take Asset Management to the Next Level

Take Asset Management to the Next Level Real asset management is about more than simply putting maintenance records and work order generation on a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS). Like any computer system, garbage in equals garbage out. The CMMS system is only as good as the data you serve it. Taken a step further, maintenance programs don't track production floor data. You could be missing a key indicator to slowing processes and potential equipment failure. To win in modern manufacturing, you need more than a software tool, you need a tool box with carefully chosen programs that work together. You need real-time visibility into operational performance.

Asset, Energy Management Cuts Costs

Asset, Energy Management Cuts Costs Asset management programs can help prioritize maintenance efforts, but what if equipment energy consumption far outweighed the cost of replacement?

Best-in-Class? Not Without Maintenance

Best-in-Class? Not Without Maintenance Convincing management that preventive and predictive maintenance programs and tools improve the company's bottom line is difficult. You need objective metrics to prove it. Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) can prove that your programs are making money by keeping equipment up and running, and quality high.

Keep an Eye on Safety

Keep an Eye on Safety Sparks and flying debris are just two of the ways workers are injured during electrical repairs, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Make sure your employees' eye protection is the right type for the job by following this checklist. Start with side shields and continue to the right goggles for working around lasers and welders. [A short registration may be required.]

Active Balancing Corrects Centrifugal Fans

Active Balancing Corrects Centrifugal Fans Vibration has always been a challenge for centrifugal fans, but active balancing can help.

CMMS Without the Software

CMMS Without the Software For many, computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) would be more attractive without the need to purchase, manage, and maintain servers. Using the Internet, you don't have to face hardware headaches. You can rent the program from a managed service provider (MSP) and not worry about where the software resides.

CMMS Lessons, an Insiders Perspective

CMMS Lessons, an Insiders Perspective 'Be realistic' is the advice from this CMMS consultant's lessons from last year. If you plan a nine month project, don't peter-out after four. Realize that production owns the equipment and is your customer. To achieve uptime and productivity improvements, do the work, get the data, and follow the analysis.
