Work Order Software
In almost every case CMMS software packages consider everything a work order. Down time work orders usually refer to work orders performed in response to an unexpected equipment failure. Equipment failure tracking isn’t really possible with this type of data collection structure. What is needed with work order software is a separate equipment failure tracking module that collects the instance of failure and its characteristics and a work order module to assign and log the corresponding repair work. MaintSmart does this but also provides a way to automatically create a repair work order from the down time record. This avoid double work entering this equipment failure but also provides this valuable down time data for separate analysis and most importantly reliability analysis and OEE.
