Mobile CMMS Solutions Jump Starts Asset Management
Abstract:Many utilities already have a Computer Maintenance Management System (CMMS) and in many cases, these utilities are challenged with the following:
Inaccurate data in CMMS.
CMMS doesn't facilitate good customer service.
Field crews don't see value of the CMMS.
Extensive data entry into the CMMS from hardcopy work orders.
These CMMS challenges are common and the City of Davis (City), California found an approach where it rejuvenated the existing CMMS by applying mobile technology. By leveraging mobile solutions and getting more tangible information out of CMMS, the City was able to jump start its asset management program. The following table presents the City's challenges, impacts and mobile solutions that will be presented in this paper.
