(CMMS) Tips – Resource Management
The number one reason CMMS implementations fail is lack of resources.
Organizations MUST devote resources not only to implement the system but also run the system they implement on a day-to-day basis.
To run the system requires a maintenance planning person. For small organizations this is usually the Maintenance Manager. For medium organizations the planning person is often an administrative assistant who acts more like a coordinator than planner. Only for large organizations is there a maintenance planner.
Maintenance planning and scheduling is more of an art than a science. Proper planning means determining the resources available, the skills required and the procedures involved. Scheduling is the function of coordinating all the logistical issues during the execution phase of the work.
Need extra resources. TRO can help…
TRO can provide contractual services for resource management including temporary placement of a CMMS maintenance planner, manager, coach, etc.
