Computerised maintenance management systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Computerised Maintenance Management Systems (CMMSs) are vital for the co-ordination of all activities related to the availability, productivity and maintainability of complex systems. Modern computational facilities have offered a dramatic scope for improved effectiveness and efficiency in, for example, maintenance. Computerised maintenance management systems (CMMSs) have existed, in one form or another, for several decades. The software has evolved from relatively simple mainframe planning of maintenance activity to Windows-based, multi-user systems that cover a multitude of maintenance functions. The capacity of CMMSs to handle vast quantities of data purposefully and rapidly has opened new opportunities for maintenance, facilitating a more deliberate andconsidered approach to managing assets.
