(CMMS) Tips – Naming Conventions

It is critical that naming conventions are solid, meaningful and are used consistently throughout a CMMS implementation.

 

To stray from company standards on naming conventions creates ambiguity and causes speculation. It is to a company’s advantage to establish conventions early in development.

 

The naming conventions in use already within an organization usually form a good base from which to establish a proper coding structure. Like naming conventions, the coding structure MUST be planned and meaningful. The coding structure will establish a means to provide consistency which is crucial for data retrieval and analysis.

 

Think! Plan! Act!
It should be every great programmer’s motto.

 


TRO can ensure that critical naming conventations are meaningful, properly defined and used consistently.
