Today’s CEO now realizes what their plant operations have known all along

November 7, 2022

Skilled manual labor and workers who engage in maintenance finally have the ear of C-level executives.  Reduced downtime, improved productivity, regulatory compliance, and unparalleled inventory control spawn bottom-line benefits that every CEO, CFO, and CIO wants to hear.  The formula is simple:  Ensure maximum return on assets by reducing costs and increasing uptime.  But the execution is not as simple unless a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) is being leveraged.

Plant managers, maintenance supervisors, shop floor personnel, procurement managers, and maintenance schedulers are just a few of the true blue, blue collar workers that have known all along that their role, their efforts, and their daily reliance and execution of a CMMS has helped facilitate a coordinated program for preventive, predictive, routine, and unplanned maintenance.  A program that produces the type of value statements that every C-level executive likes to hear:

  • Extend asset life
  • Reduce the need for capital expenditures
  • Reduce equipment and maintenance costs
  • Eliminate obsolete and/or excess inventory
  • Decrease unplanned downtime
  • Seamless integration to external business systems

With the implementation of a CMMS, today’s CEO now realizes what their plant operations have known all along………time is their plant’s most precious commodity.  Time to assign, time to repair, and time to complete all translates into time to compete and that is on the agenda of every boardroom meeting.  Being late erodes the addressable market your company serves and ultimately erodes your company’s EPS and/or profitability.  Don’t be late when it comes to implementing a CMMS.
