The purpose of a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) at Massachusetts Water Resources Authority is to support the long-term maintenance initiative called the Facilities Asset Management Program (FAMP). A fundamental component of a successful best-in-class maintenance management program is the establishment of a CMMS with quality data. The CMMS can provide a storehouse of critical information necessary to make sound maintenance decisions. This information may be data specific to a particular equipment item, a general class of equipment, or to an entire facility. In all cases, it becomes the basis for a common understanding of the status and condition of the plant.

In March 2001, a CMMS post implementation audit was completed and an optimization program was developed. The plan, execution, and results to date have been significant in supporting the new Asset Management program. In an effort to reach world class status, MWRA is optimizing its CMMS to provide timely and accurate performance data to ensure successful business decisions.
