As part of a global group that operates on the leading edge of technology, the PT Schneider Electric Manufacturing Batam facility was unhappy with their previous spreadsheet based preventive maintenance system. Having to key in preventive maintenance tasks into the spreadsheet at every annual cycle was tedious at best.
In view of this, PT Schneider Electric Manufacturing Batam decided to install a computerized maintenance management system from CWorks. With CWorks, PT Schneider were able to auto update their preventive maintenance schedule calendars thus doing away with the annual data entry that they had to do while using spreadsheets.
With the computerized calendars and dynamic preventive maintenance schedule triggers that the CWorks software provided, focus could then be employed towards managing and completing the preventive maintenance tasks required. It also helped the maintenance team to view list of tasks to be done that they can then prioritize by urgency, needs and resources.
Someone once said that matters that are not measured cannot be managed. With the installation of the computerized maintenance management system, maintenance becomes a measured activity that could be managed at PT Schneider Electric Manufacturing Batam.
