Title: Make CMMS work for you

Abstract

One of the most widespread information technologies in today`s powerplants is the computer-based maintenance management system. In spite of their popularity, these systems still have a long way to go before they can be called user-friendly. Computer-based maintenance management systems (CMMS) have become a staple of the lean, competitive powerplant`s diet. With many systems on the market, each with its own slew of options to pick from, it pays to shop around. But system procurement is not always straightforward, and proper implementation can be both time-consuming and expensive. Software costs are just the tip of the iceberg.
