A great storeroom gives you the capability to figure out what unidentified parts actually are or to know when your special-order parts hit the receiving dock.

The MRO Best Practices Report explores the conditions of successful storerooms, as well as those with little or no expertise in maintenance spare parts management. Results and insights on the Maintenance Management Benchmarking Survey are also included.

Updated! 2015 RCM Benchmarking Report

A Note from Terrence O'Hanlon, CEO and Publisher and Uptime Magazine:

" is excited about bringing its 2005 study on reliability centered maintenance (RCM) up to date in 2015 to track the advances that had been achieved in the ten years since the original study.

In my own work with Uptime Elements – A Reliability Framework for Asset Performance, I noticed fewer and fewer organizations with whom I was in contact applying reliability centered maintenance in order to develop maintenance strategies. I was hearing oft-cited excuses of excessive cost, exorbitant time, massive resource requirements and low management support as reasons why RCM had not been applied.

With release and publication of ISO 55001:2014 Asset management -- Management systems – Requirements, asset owners are being asked to ensure that they have policies, strategies and plans that ensure they fully understand how to create value from assets while balancing risk at a level that is acceptable to the organization."

Asset Management Practices, Investments and Challenges 2014-2019

CMMS Best Practices Study - A Perspective

Julie Rampello

Selected graphs are taken from the CMMS Best Practices Study and are consistent with report's figure reference. produced a CMMS Best Practices Study in July 2011 demonstrating the value computerized maintenance management systems add, as well as areas for future growth and improvement. The report was based on a survey of users conducted earlier that year which focused on implementation, use and sustainability.

As a marketer, this report is important as it provides an opportunity to better understand the user experience with CMMS in general and, for the Maximo brand specifically, the CMMS that Projetech provides. From this report, we see there is much that is changing in CMMS and the details summarized in the report provide us with opportunities to address the evolving needs of our customers. It is my pleasure to provide a perspective on the results of the survey and report.
