Maintenance Planning Essentials – Tracking Performance

Once you plan is in place, you now have a game plan to insure performance.  Tracking performance is a critical part of your plan – without it, there is no need for a plan.

This is where tools such as Preventive Maintenance Software can really help you.  Understanding the dynamics of your facility, and having the framework to improve performance will help your team achieve their objectives.

Performance tracking is a daily event.  Whenever work is performed, there is a cost and hopefully a benefit.  Knowing the balance between cost and benefit is one of the primary roles of a CMMS.  It is easier to make improvements when you have a performance baseline rather than taking an educated guess.

Tracking performance will improve your budget control, allow you to test your assumptions better, and understand when conditions have changed that can affect your maintenance plan.
