What is the SAP Plant Maintenance module and why do industries need that?
In manufacturing companies, the most essential part of measuring the overall efficiency of production depends on the equipment’s condition. Machines that are used in manufacturing must be maintained in good working conditions to utilize them at optimum capacities.
Conventional methods of maintenance took up a lot of manual work, time, and cost. Plant maintenance module offers help to such industries with maintenance activities including inspections, repair, preventive and corrective maintenance, notifications, and other measurements that are unavoidable for an ideal system.
Digital Transformation? How does it help improving Asset Maintenance?
To put in simple words, digitizing means adopting digital or state-of-the-art features into your software system to ensure effective workflow. Digitizing Plant Maintenance would help enhance the maintenance operations to another level. The following are the merits of taking on digital transformation to your Plant Maintenance:
1) Increased Wrench Time
Implementing digitized plant maintenance increases the wrench time of the technicians as the equipment parts are acquired quickly through mobile apps whenever necessary. This data is available both online and offline, making it easily accessible.
2) Self-service & Real-time collaboration
The service engineers in the maintenance department will have a quicker pick-up time on the data regarding incidents that were created by other departments. This real-time collaboration within departments saves a lot of time.
3) Increased Productivity
As a result of improved time management, productivity increases as there is real-time data access on both online and offline platforms along with safety.
4) Operational Efficiencies
The digital data on equipment becomes an easy source to identify the focus area and standardize the operations from the equipment in real-time.
5) Increase Uptime of Assets
Digitizing your maintenance module would reduce the asset downtime that occurs
This will help enable faster planning, assigning, work orders, push notifications, all in real-time.
6) Easy to Deploy
It uses a simplified user-based interface that makes it easily deployable and takes a maximum of 12 weeks to implement and is easily configurable to meet the dynamic business activities.
7) Improved maintenance data quality
As this runs on SAP, the entire maintenance data which is the single source of truth is accessible to the entire organization and is driven by the real-time incident, order data, and notification.
8) Advantage of Integrating Modules
Other modules like Material Management, Sales & Distribution, Project Planning, etc. require real-time information. By integrating the PM module with these, avoids unwanted mistakes, shortens repair time, and improves the visibility for strategic planning.
The primary reason for adopting a digitized PM Module is the fact that it saves cost. By eliminating paper-based processes, accelerating maintenance operations, and real-time offline and online data access, the overall cost has reduced significantly.
