Harnessing the Power of AI in CMMS
Post the industrial revolution, manufacturers have turned their focus on bulk production, for which they had to manage and organize the thing on industrial scale. This industrial evolution has also increased the demand for solutions that can proactively monitor the maintenance management of plant machineries.
This is where the CMMS (powered with AI) can pick up the slack. Several manufacturers are discovering possible opportunities of predictive and preventative maintenance applications with emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its capabilities of recognizing temperature, vibration, and other factors from sensors pre-built into machinery and vehicles. Integrating AI in CMMS solutions makes the most of what AI is good at (pattern recognition) and applying it to problems that are complicated for humans to manage on their own.
The AI-enabled CMMS solutions also enable organizations to predict the life of machineries present in the plant. Also, preventative maintenance involves repairing the machinery to keep it working longer. By using the data gathered from the equipment and AI, the CMMS would automatically make adjustments to the maintenance schedules.
What Are the Factors Hampering Adoption of CMMS?
One of the major factors hampering adoption of CMMS is the lack of skilled workforce. The industrial sector has rapidly changed in the past 10 years. Automation and digitization have changed how operators complete their tasks. Prior to introduction of computers and computer programs, maintenance data was recorded with a pencil and paper and stored in special journals.
Using computers and various computer programs presented organizations with potential for organizing their companies work processes and controlling and managing all their business activities, including maintenance management. Nowadays, CMMS packages can be used by any company or organization that needs to perform maintenance activities of their equipment, assets, or property.
However, there is still lack of skilled manufacturing workers. This can be especially true with maintenance technicians. For example, it requires a skilled person to define an equipment hierarchy and create the right maintenance tasks. Some industrial organizations still rely on minimal training and initial preparation. Due to lack of training and skilled workforce, each person working in the maintenance staff ends up developing their own approaches for using the software. This leads to a more complicated and disordered database. The time-saving features for which the organizations has paid for will end up unused. Thus, lack of skilled workforce is considered to be one of the major challenge in the CMMS market.
Reduced Downtime, Cost-Effectiveness, and Increased Productivity Driving Uptake
Within industrial plants, downtime occurs whenever an asset needs to be repaired or inspected. According to a study by ITIC, about 33% of organizations have suffered the loss of US $1- $5 million because of unplanned equipment breakdowns. This isn’t always avoidable. However, if repairs and maintenance are inefficient, it prolongs downtime.
These inefficiencies can add up and cost the facility a lot of time and money in lost production. Thus, several industrial organizations are opting to integrate CMMS to reduce downtime and increase productivity. It can automate and streamline all of important asset management tasks, thus increasing the durability of assets and decreasing the error.
The ultimate goal of using a CMMS is to increase maintenance productivity. The software makes most features like work order management, extensive inventory management, customizing items to increase the team’s efficiency and productivity further. The software increases the overall productivity and safety compliance, reduce overall maintenance costs, improve employee productivity, keep track of assets and inventory, and have a complete oversight over all maintenance operations.
It can also help find work orders that take too long, spot the cause of the delay, and fix it, so work can get done faster. Moreover, with integration of mobile CMMS, the technician has a visual of their assigned responsibility for the day, which allows them to move swiftly with urgency and increases their productivity.
