Where CMMS Fits Into Your Reliability Journey

"Where CMMS Fits Into Your Reliability Journey", an eMaint Best Practices Webinar hosted by Joel Levitt of Reliabilityweb.com, discussed reliability functions that are only possible with accurate, complete and defect-free CMMS data. During the presentation, Levitt asserted that, "CMMS is the hub that holds the spokes of your wheel or reliability effort. Everything revolves around it."

CMMS is a tool to get further on your reliability journey.

Levitt leveraged his 28 years of experience to provide methods to collect, analyze and act on good data–the keys to making a CMMS system most effective for any organization. These keys include:

Joel references the book "Don’t Just Fix It, Improve It!" by Winston P. Ledet. In the book, Ledet talks about the “maturity” of a maintenance and reliability effort. A survey of the webinar attendees found that 47% had a mature reliability effort, with consistent scheduled preventive (PM) and/or predictive (PdM) maintenance tasks. The full survey results revealed that:

1

41% rely on reactive maintenance

2

47% utilize PM and PdM

3

10% leverage proactive maintenance to solve sources of defects

4

3% use precision maintenance to remove defects to limit new defects

Joel mentioned that PM and PdM schedules can be difficult to sustain if organizations do not maintain their programs.

During the presentation, Levitt described how a CMMS system can support Reliabilityweb.com’s Uptime Elements. These elements include: Leadership for Reliability (LER), Reliability Engineering for Maintenance (REM), Asset Management (AM), Asset Condition Management (ACM), and Work Execution Management (WEM). A CMMS can provide the data to transform PM efforts, optimize asset performance, legitimize projects and establish leadership.

At the conclusion of the webinar, Levitt asked the attendees, “What is the chance that your organization will plan to use the power of CMMS on your reliability journey?

1

14% of attendees said there was a 25% chance

2

21% of attendees said there was a 50% chance

3

35% of attendees said there was a 75% chance

4

30% of attendees said there was a ~100% chance

Joel found this statistic to be excellent news. He wanted attendees to take it seriously that a CMMS is a tool to help one get further on their reliability journey. Reliabilityweb.com has actually created CMMS Best Practices which can help you get started.
