CAFM/CMMS systems dictate the format for data entry. In the worst case, this is laborious and time-consuming trying to enter data directly into the CMMS.
The value of a CAFM/CMMS system for maintenance departments is undeniable, but it can be difficult to get started because the task populating your system with data can be very tedious and tme consuming.
One of the most critical aspects of successful CAFM/CMMS implementation is ensuring that all data entered is complete and accurate.
The goal of a CMMS/CAFM system is normally to generate ongoing preventative maintenance plans.
Basic equipment information, such as type, capacities, physical location, and warranty dates, plus barcodes and images need to be captured onsite.
