Do you track information such as in-service date, current status, and on agreement ? On meters, how often do you take readings? Do you create schedules for planned maintenance? Do you have multiple planned maintenance tasks in a single schedule for instance, one set of tasks for a 5,000-mile service and another set for a 10,000-mile service? Are your service intervals based on meter readings or other Read More

Driving New Efficiencies in the Indirect Supply Chain: Procurement and Logistics Strategies for Maintenance, Repair, and Operations Supplies


In a challenging economy, many companies focus cost-cutting on direct materials and capital spending rather than maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) supplies (also known as indirect materials). But an alternate concept allows you to implement lean processes to create a high-efficiency MRO outsource model. Find out how it offers greater visibility and promotes continuous improvement along the indirect supply chain.

How Airlines Can Stop Getting Murdered by Maintenance Costs


Patchwork maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) systems can cost large airlines millions in duplicated effort, extra inventory, and delays. But with round-the-clock schedules to maintain, few airlines can afford to upgrade to an integrated MRO solution any time soon. Today TEC Analyst Philippe Reney looks at two ways airlines can improve their MRO capabilities without a complete IT overhaul.

repair and maintenance  of an airline's maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations requires significant planning around moving assets, inventory, machine shops, and manpower, often on a round-the-clock schedule. This is particularly true for legacy carriers, i.e., large operators with multiple fleets of aircraft, round-the-clock operations, and international destinations to manage. Legacy airlines must also contend with complex multidepartmental processes often supported by a mix of limited system capabilities and Read More

Continuous Improvement Offers CMMS Maintenance Benefits


Computer maintenance management system (CMMS) packages are excellent tools for collecting, analyzing, and reporting data and can offer insight into a process’ problem. Critical success factors for the effective use for the CMMS involves clear support from management and measurable drivers involving time, quality, and cost.

repair and maintenance  Improvement Offers CMMS Maintenance Benefits Introduction Most senior managers are unimpressed by simply implementing a computer maintenance management system (CMMS) or generating numerous reports. Instead, management is focused on results, which implies continuous improvement. A CMMS package provides an excellent tool for collecting, analyzing, and reporting unlimited amounts of data. However, the difficulty is distilling the information into a form that can be used to make better decisions, Read More

Support and Maintenance: No Longer the Software Industry's "Best Kept Secret"?


Support and maintenance (S&M) contracts mean very different things to vendors and to users. With user enterprises' growing awareness of how these S&M agreements affect their bottom lines, vendors need to reassess their pricing and value proposition strategies.

repair and maintenance  maintenance contracts: a service repair contract and a service replacement contract. The service repair contract promises only to fix the product the customer bought. The service replacement contract means that, for the life of contract, the consumer can bring in the product and have it replaced with a brand new one—no questions asked. This latter policy is logically much more expensive, and it costs about 1020 percent of the original price. But this is where the similarity with enterprise applications Read More

How Bar Codes Can Optimize Data Recording and Information Analysis


Bar code technology allows users to analyze information to develop more accurate maintenance, personnel, and financial planning. In particular it can hasten the data recording processes in a maintenance system, as seen in its use in the aircraft maintenance process.

Bar codes can be assigned to rotational and consumable materials so they can be distributed to stations, warehouses, or maintenance bases. The system is then capable of recording what components were sent, received, or are in transit, as well as their description, part number, serial number, lot, etc. Bar codes (or some other type of encoding, such as data matrix) can be assigned to tools that are subject to gauging.
