Maintenance budgets are complex strategy plans that have to account for a number of known and anticipated scenarios. Providing accurate numbers requires having accurate data. A computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) can help provide this important information.
Tracking, Monitoring, and Recording
There are several aspects of budget creation that CMMS can assist with. Three important facets are:
- Capital planning – View the value, life expectancy, threshold, and other important characteristics of each part
- Budgeting control – Moderate the most expensive pieces of equipment through maintenance services already proven to be cost-effective
- Prolong equipment life – Track maintenance requirements of diverse systems and subsystems to develop the most effective plans
The detailed reports made possible by CMMS technology allows for easier accounting and more accurate budgetary planning. Use these reports to create long- and short-term budgets.
