What does maintenance actually mean?

The maintenance of e.g. Machines and Assets is acc. DIN 31051 one of the four basic maintenance measures (see maintenance software). The aim of maintenance is to ensure the target condition of an object and to maintain the to delay the progressive wear and tear caused by system operation. In general, this work is carried out after regular maintenance intervals:

  • Regular maintenance every 2,000 operating hours
  • General overhaul every 30,000 operating hours
  • Annual regular maintenance
  • Major maintenance every 2 years

Work - especially major maintenance work - is often carried out by qualified specialists from maintenance and repair companies. Only through a reliable and regular maintenance, the longest possible service life of the maintenance objects can be guaranteed. In addition - especially after commissioning - the Maintenance in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions is essential to maintain warranty claims against the manufacturer.

The more properties you manage, the more complex and confusing it is important to keep an eye on all maintenance due. Maintenance planning software is often used to support this.

Tasks and requirements for maintenance software

Maintenance software, also known as maintenance planning software, takes on special planning tasks that arise during the maintenance and servicing of machines and assets. In addition to the pure Other areas are becoming increasingly important - such as route and tour optimization as well as seamless Integration of technicians into the entire service process via a mobile app.

Property and asset management

Property and asset management forms the basis for the resulting resulting maintenance planning. Before you can receive reminders from the maintenance software, your objects with their master data must be mapped in the software. This includes core data such as manufacturer, serial no. and performance data as well as Detailed data such as individual components of the property - e.g. the installed system control.

In addition, the location of the maintenance object should not only be determined via pure address data but also via GPS coordinates can. Finally, the asset history should show at which point in time (at which meter value) which maintenance stage has been carried out in the past.

Maintenance planning

The maintenance planner function uses the defined Asset data from asset management and derives the next maintenance stages due based on the assigned maintenance plans. Good systems do not simply add a defined time interval. Particularly in the case of complex technical assets that are maintained according to meter values (e.g. operating hours), it is also necessary to take into account the degree of utilization of your property and to determine the next maintenance date much more precisely based on the last known time and meter values. As soon as maintenance is due, a ticket or maintenance reminder should be issued fully automatically and assigned to a defined employee or department.

Order management and planning board

The maintenance tasks generated as part of maintenance planning are checked and coordinated by the operational planner - depending on the customer agreement - and included in the rough order planning. To optimally map a holistic maintenance management process, appropriate software solutions should offer the option of generating corresponding maintenance assignments or orders directly from the maintenance tickets created.

As part of order management, these are assigned to the service technician in the planning board - preferably via drag & drop. The software supports the Operational planner in assigning jobs by means of an automated criteria check - which technicians are best suited for the job based on their qualifications and distance from the place of operation? An integrated planning board gives planners an overview of the defined maintenance assignments at all times.

Digital maintenance documentation

Maintenance software only really makes sense if it is a enables optimum interaction between all employees involved in the maintenance and service process - this includes in particular the Service technicians who carry out the technical maintenance work. The software solution should have an easy-to-use mobile app that provides the Technician with all the provides the necessary information about the operation, the customer and the property. The ability to access the technical documentation and the complete asset history.

Using flexible, configurable forms, service technicians can then carry out measured values and test points digitally via the app. The documentation of a replacement process for individual components should be made possible - ideally by adding a nameplate image. After filling in all the relevant order data, the data is then transmitted back to the control center by the service technician without delay. After a preliminary validation, the reported data is taken into account by the software for the calculation of future maintenance levels - and the Maintenance cycle starts again from the beginning.
