A multi-module management system designed by DPSI.
iMaint is an industry-leading computerized maintenance management software (CMMS)/enterprise asset management (EAM) solution that’s helped organizations resolve critical maintenance challenges, maximize ROI, enhance productivity, ensure compliance and more. It’s suitable for a variety of industries ranging from small to large multi-site organizations, and is highly scalable. Maint is offered either as an on-premise solution or an online, cloud-hosted solution. It can also be accessed on mobile devices.
We run 8-hour shifts and 12-hour shifts and they are intertwined. When the work orders are generated, they are given to the maintenance shift supervisors who in turn assign them to their mechanics based on skill set and required labor. We have an average of 200 work orders a week. Of course, not everything can be planned, so we also use the Quick Work Order to document unscheduled work, but not to check out or assign parts.
We use iMaint to track approximately 9,000 parts distributed throughout our six sub-warehouse facilities. Each warehouse’s inventory is specific to the equipment it supports. Expensive and delicate electrical parts are stored in one location and large motors and gear boxes are located in another.
We rely heavily on the part lookup feature. When a part is entered into the system, it is assigned to specific equipment, has the manufacturer, description, iMaint part number, manufacturer part number and any keywords to help identify the part. These detailed descriptions make it easy for the mechanics to locate the needed parts efficiently. The maintenance shop at each facility is centrally located. In the last five years, maintenance has increased in efficiency with our upgrade to iMaint and other management changes.
