Simplifying maintenance scheduling in the Automotive industry
September 29, 2016
One of the most basic tasks in keeping the automotive industry up and running is to optimize scheduling for routine maintenance. That’s why many companies are turning to their Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) software to manage a mission-critical function that is often more difficult than it should be.
The challenge grows out of the need to coordinate people, assets, activities, materials, and potential hazards across large, multi-function organizations. There’s a lot of complexity in scheduling and EAM can make that easier and more efficient. Once the process takes hold it allows companies to measure improvement, using performance indicators like time scheduled or time available against time worked to optimize resources and costs.
A powerful example of a customer that has used Infor EAM to optimize a uniquely sensitive system for manufacturing and maintaining a fleet of nuclear warheads is UK Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE).
“Infor EAM’s flexibility and ability to scale were compelling, and the application contained everything we needed to support preventative maintenance, detection and notification of breakdowns, the scheduling and prioritization of engineers, and management of spare parts inventories,” said Ken Chapman, AWE’s Head of Asset Maintenance Engineering. "In Infor, we have the absolute confidence that our assets are the best they can be at any given time and that we are in the optimum position to react quickly to our program demands.”
