Intelligent Work Orders
When you have complex infrastructure to maintain, using intelligent work orders is the best way to save time and money. Intelligent work orders evolved from their old paper ancestors, at the heart of computerized maintenance management software (CMMS). They are the most effective work order system because they update in real-time in the Cloud, and are fully integrated with the information, scheduling, and reports needed to fully optimize maintenance.
No longer languishing on a clipboard in the back of a truck, the intelligent work order connects the people who need the maintenance done quickly, with the people doing it, and even the people paying for it.
Scheduling is a breeze with Fiix CMMS maintenance scheduling software. Because intelligent work orders are connected through the Cloud in real-time to the equipment, they can be generated directly from breakdowns or meter readings, and users can submit maintenance requests. With more “eyes on the ground’, you can build a team approach to maintenance with quicker response times.
Preventative maintenance becomes second nature with automatic scheduling software, and it actually happens! You can add multiple assets to a single work order to optimize maintenance rounds. Closing work orders is easy using autofill completion and multi-task selection to bulk close tasks.
And best of all, the supervisor has the whole process at their fingertips, updated automatically every moment.
Information is Power
Intelligent work orders are powerful information handlers. They are easily built with detailed work instructions created from standard job lists, then “souped up” with attached videos, pictures, manuals and specialized real world notes added over time by technicians documenting innovative local solutions.
Why are smart work orders so effective? Software based work orders allow technicians to become active players in successful inventory management, by tracking parts consumed, ordering parts, and linking to software that can put spare or discontinued parts on the market for sale. Intelligent work order systems make short work of managing inventory across complex multiple facilities, and they preserve all that information.
Nothing is lost.
Feeding your Reports a healthy diet
You will save time and money every day by retaining your critical information with smart work orders, but they really shine by feeding the info into reports. Now each and every job or task actually contributes to optimizing future policies and procedures. Here are six areas where maintenance software can build helpful reports:
- Maintenance efficiency, costs and profitability
- Equipment life cycle analysis
- Inventory management
- Employee performance reviews
- Measurable sustainability target performance
- Equipment and systems performance
Remember, a report is only as good as the information it is built on. Use the power of intelligent work orders to give you intelligent reports.
The Evolution of Intelligent Work Orders
The first maintenance work order was probably one Cave Person telling another “I think you should put more wood on the fire”. The industrial revolution made work orders much more complicated, and paper was a big step forward. Modern maintenance work order systems live in the Cloud, connecting all the people, information and equipment necessary to make managing complex infrastructure maintenance simple.
Maintenance made easy.
