Definition of CMMS
A Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS), also known as Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) software, is designed to help schedule, plan, manage and track maintenance activities associated with equipment, vehicles or facilities.
A CMMS solution provides a central storage location for the majority of data and information for your assets. It manages and controls your work and materials management and parts usage processes. It also tracks maintenance activity over the life cycle of an asset.
Maintenance, facilities and operations departments can use a CMMS to manage assets, work orders, work requests, preventive maintenance tasks, inventory and parts, condition monitoring and maintenance schedules. All maintenance activities can be monitored and analyzed through robust CMMS reporting and dashboard tools.
