Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS)

Plan, manage and react with CMMS System from ANT. The new maintenance system will allow you to schedule repairs and maintenance based on actual machine cycle time. Increase machine availability and reduce downtime to increase plant productivity.

What is a CMMS system and how does it work?

CMMS is a computerized maintenance management system. The software allows you to control the status of both the entire machinery fleet and individual units. The CMMS supports the supervision of plant maintenance and the planning of maintenance work, as well as enabling preventive and ad-hoc activities. The collection of data and observation of events on the operation of machinery in real time make it possible to precisely determine the timing of subsequent inspections and maintenance work.

Integration of the CMMS system with other IT systems such as APS makes information about machine failure and the need to reschedule production processes reach users instantly. Maintenance activities in the plant are thus organized and carefully planned, and regular attention to the proper condition of machines allows minimizing the overall number of repairs.

CMMS System - Who is it for?

A CMMS system is for all companies that want to optimize their maintenance processes. This includes companies from various industries, such as manufacturing, retail, healthcare, and services.

A CMMS system can help companies improve their maintenance processes in a number of ways, including:

  • Tracking assets and maintenance tasks
  • Generating reports on maintenance costs and performance
  • Prioritizing maintenance tasks
  • Automating maintenance tasks
  • Integrating with other systems, such as ERP and CRM systems

CMMS seamlessly connects with various factory systems, including:

  • Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
  • Warehouse Management System (WMS)
  • Automated Production Systems (APS)
  • Manufacturing Execution System (MES)

Benefits of Integration are serval including:

  • Real-time Information Sharing: Information regarding manufacturing processes, warehouse operations, and machinery maintenance can be shared in real-time.
  • Inventory Management: The CMMS system helps keep inventory records up-to-date and ensures spare parts availability for maintenance.
  • Production Scheduling: Integration enables swift adjustments to production schedules in response to changes in machinery status or component availability.
  • Accurate Forecasts: It facilitates the development of more accurate production forecasts.
    Automated Procurement: Integration can support automated procurement processes, reducing stockouts and downtime.
  • Condition-Based Maintenance: Integration enables the implementation of condition-based maintenance strategies to prolong equipment lifespan.

What are the benefits of using CMMS System?

Implementing a CMMS in a manufacturing plant is an effective way to automate maintenance tasks. Strengthened control, precise scheduling of maintenance work and quick response to breakdowns increase machine availability and reduce downtime, thus increasing productivity.

Maintenance

Prevent breakdowns and ensure the proper condition of key machine components. Perform regular maintenance to ensure safe operation of equipment.

● Precise scheduling of inspections and repairs.

● Reminders for scheduled work

● Guarantee safe operation of machines in accordance with applicable standards such as ISA-95

Real-time monitoring of machine conditions

Make sound decisions based on real machine cycle data. React instantly to changes related to their condition.

● Report failures quickly and easily

● Better control of repair times

● Increase machine availability

Control over a single machine and the entire machine fleet

Take advantage of the information provided by each machine. Comprehensive data will increase the level of control over the condition of all machines, tools and parts.

● Precise calculation of performance indicators.

● Confidence in the proper operation of key tools

● Prevention of the occurrence of failures.

Collect historical data

Use data collected over time to identify and eliminate bottlenecks. Closely monitor the elements that cause frequent failures.

● Instant access to a historical list of failures.

● Ability to find and eliminate bottlenecks

● Track fleet maintenance costs.

Base on actual data, not assumed statistics

Accurately schedule maintenance work based on actual machine uptime. Reduce costs associated with major breakdowns caused by late response to a fault.

● Perform inspections in a timely manner.

● Reduce costs associated with repairs of major faults.

● Increase performance indicators

Data always up to date ​

The key factor for successful plant operation is knowledge of when inspections must be made. ANT machine connectivity expertise gives the possibility to schedule maintenance according to the actual working time of the machine. We put our effort into collecting true and up-to-date data, to deliver the most accurate information for the maintenance team.

The failure rate of machines can be calculated using mean time between failures (MTBF) and mean time to repair (MTTR). MTBF is the average time a machine runs before it fails. MTTR is the average time to repair and restart the machine.  

The higher the MTBF, the lower the failure rate. The higher the MTTR, the lower the MTBF. 

Failure rates are usually expressed as a percentage of total operating hours or total number of failures per 100 operating hours. 

MTBF stands for mean time between failures. It is a measure of the average operating time of a machine or system before a failure occurs.  

MTBF measures the reliability of equipment and is calculated by dividing the total operating time by the number of failures. MTBF is an important measure in reliability engineering because it can be used to predict when a machine will fail, allowing preventive maintenance to be performed before it fails.
