What is Maintenance Management?

Maintenance Management is a process by which we manage a company’s assets and all the resources. The purpose of this is to ensure that the capacity to produce is sufficient and that all the resources are used in the best way possible.  

Maintenance Management is all about maintaining the company’s assets and resources. The purpose of it to see that the production is done with utmost efficiency and all the resources are used effectively. Company’s do not focus on the aspects of managing a company in depth. People outside the maintenance industry might not get an idea of how in-depth maintenance is done. There are a lot of efforts to put in, while making the flow of supply chain. Let’s go in depth and understand these concepts and see why they are important?  

What is maintenance management?

Maintenance Management involves keeping a track of all the assets and all their parts. The purpose is to ensure that the production is efficient and effective. This ensures that no time is wasted. This is done by looking at all the software that we can use to get the work of maintenance done.  

Objectives of Maintenance Management:

Every business process has objective and maintenance management is not different than this. The five main objectives are:

  • Budgeting
  • Scheduling work
  • Regulating compliance
  • Optimizing work
  • Improving safety

Budgeting: Maintenance Managers usually work with a limited budget, they might have many different items that we need a budget for. When we can clearly see how the whole budget is allocated then it brings in the transparency, with this there is a greater potential by which we can leverage the funds.

Scheduling Tasks: Scheduling the employees work and bringing in a balance in the whole process is very important. It is evident the company’s schedule would be effected if the assets are not maintained properly. It is important to schedule the work in every department and not just the maintenance one.  

Regulation compliance: It is very easy to lose a track of the regulation of your department or say the whole industry. All these regulations can be managed easily. It becomes easy for teams to keep a track of all these using software to comply all the regulations at your fingertips.

Optimizing Work: It is easy to maintain the workflow of optimizing the equipment with the help of a software. This will in turn help you to optimize employee’s efficiency and company productivity. In good situations this will create a chain which will provide efficiency to the whole organization.  

Improvement in safety: Safety levels increase when the maintenance is properly managed. If we are keeping up with all the safety standards then there would be less breakdown in the organization as the assets are well maintained, there are small risks, all of these can be dealt with time.
