For asset-heavy industries, maintenance is the core of optimizing asset performance and extension of life. Periodic checks, maintenance, and installations are the integral processes that contain numerous checklists, process safety manuals, and data collection.
To carry out successful maintenance, field workers need to
- Conduct proper assessments
- Execute Work Orders
- Check for spare parts and book materials consumed
- Book time spent
- Follow Standing Operating Procedures (SOPs) and manuals to ensure compliance
- Maintain team collaboration
If your organization is predominantly using paper forms or spreadsheets to perform the above tasks, there is a high risk of data loss, inaccurate information and lack of consistency between customer information and work orders, resulting in repeat visits, high operational cost, and lower productivity.
