The objective of a labour component is to allow the system to: track the labour cost and hours recorded against the maintenance of equipment. Tracking the labour wrench time allows management to determine optimal human resources required to maintain the capital assets of the Organization. It further provides the labour history component of effective life cycle management of the asset. The national average for wrench time is less than 30% for maintenance technicians. Poor planning and scheduling are the largest contributor to low wrench time. While 100% maintenance productivity is an unrealistic objective a far more realistic goal for any maintenance organization of 60% wrench time is achievable.
