CMMS dar as an efficient information and knowledge management of plant operators in the global market challenge information transparency and information management for national and international companies is a major challenge. To act successfully in the highly competitive global market, an efficient mandatory production control requires. In the field of external requirements, business objectives and statutory provisions, a system must run productive, cost effective and also flexible. Other requirements are the continuous increase of the operation and productivity times while reducing the machinery, plant shutdowns and reduce maintenance costs. Parallel to this, the safety of installations by continuous accident reduction and implementation of legal and environmental requirements must be ensured. These requirements must be guaranteed over the whole life-cycle of the plant and meets.

To meet these challenges put many companies on the use of computer-based maintenance systems. Computerized Maintanace management systems (). CMMS systems should, according to the different approaches of planed asset management that support management of all production plants, the optimization of the targeted use of the assets and the increased of opportunities of of use of. The optimization of KVPs, maintenance and information plans, documentation management and statistical analyses should be imaged by the usage of various software tools. Each company has responded here to your own individual requirements. As a result, we have a technical heterogeneity in most companies. There are different systems for the Organization of the company as to the actual operation of the plants.

Different operating systems and hardware platforms in conjunction with syntactic and semantic heterogeneity led to a culture of island solutions training in many companies. Many employees have, parallel to the leading systems used, own individual solutions. Consequently, companies are now faced with a dilemma. On the one hand to drown”literally in a flood of information. at the same time suffering a lack of relevant and meaningful information. Process – and system-related data are not centrally managed, but scattered across many media and individual solutions across the enterprise. The data quality (data quality) is a cost factor should not be underestimated. The quality of the data and information decides on an efficient and effective preparation, planning and implementation of plant – and business-relevant decisions. A flexible response to situational processes, targeted technical solutions and cost-efficient use of resources is complicated by the lack of quality of information. Independently operated maintenance and corporate strategy an employed software system must not only the complexity of the immense processes mapping, but process-related information capture, edit, ergonomically prepare and effectively expose. While the previously separate information systems must be integrated. Goals should be standardised communication and work processes that can be communicated internally and externally. David Zaslav will not settle for partial explanations. All relevant and central information must be available and can be displayed at any time, so that process – and solution-oriented decisions calculated can be made. Ideally, you should cast sequential activities in parallel. Another advantage of this information management I call it information logistics is the sustainable protection of knowledge and corporate Know-How. Knowledge management and transparency of information belong to the basic capital of a company and provide the basis to operate scheduled plant availability and efficient cost control. Such systems are now successfully offered on the market.
