With most CMMS applications you can only assign a single asset to a work order. If you have a lot of assets that need maintenance, setting that all up that can be incredibly time consuming. A lot of overworked teams don’t have the luxury of time to spare entering all that data into their CMMS. So, what can you do? Maintenance Assistant has developed the “Multi-asset work order” that lets you add multiple assets to a single scheduled maintenance or work order. Not only does this save time on data entry, it’s also great for technicians who need to repeat the same set of tasks on multiple assets, like during inspections, lubrications or meter readings.
Why should you use multi-asset work orders?
Multi-asset work orders make your team more effective when completing inspection rounds. How do they do this though?
- Reducing the number of work orders to be managed. Managers get a clearer view of what needs to be done.
- Nothing is missed. It’s easier to track what has been done on a single work order.
- More efficient inspection routes. You can build the task list to guide the technicians to the tasks in the right order.
Multi-asset work orders let you complete the work in real-time in the field with minimal effort by completing the work and signing off tasks on different assets as you go. They are ideal for those performing:
- Condition monitoring rounds
- Operator rounds
- Lubrication rounds
- Data collection rounds
- Safety and environmental rounds
