Get a 30-Day fully functional trial of FastMaint CMMS software
If you are a maintenance planner or maintenance manager at a large commercial and industrial facility one of your jobs will be to prepare a maintenance budget and get it approved. This will decide how much money you have available for maintenance management, hiring employees and training. This can be a daunting task to do especially since you will have no way of predicting the costs of future equipment breakdowns. Maintenance management typically involves a lot of money due to the costs of labor, materials and other charges. A good maintenance software package (CMMS software) can help you get a handle on such costs that will help you prepare a more realistic budget.
Once you are able to get estimates for costs under these different heads you will be able to put together a budget estimate. You will need to justify expenses under each head and provide fairly strong justification of why you need money for a particular expense. Otherwise management has a habit of cutting items they do not understand especially when they are under pressure to reduce unnecessary expenses!
If you do not currently have maintenance software or are unable to get these reports from software you currently have, you can download a fully functional 30-day trial of FastMaint CMMS. Use it to set up the preventive maintenance tasks you expect for the next year. Once done you can try to generate work order reports/ assorted item history reports for future dates to get an idea of scheduled preventive maintenance works orders and the expected costs.
