I have a programming question about how the CMMS tracks & reveals repair work on equipment.
Our current system goes like this:
Equipment PM has w/o’s for each equipment on a PM route.
If a piece of equipment is found to be defective a new equipment number is assigned and the old one is switch out on the PM with new one.
Equipment PM will then have w/o’s for each equipment (new one too) on next PM route.
My question here is how do you or the CMMS system or others know that a specific piece of equipment has been replaced 4 times? What kind of CMMS programing mechanism will work to being the attention to the problem and will not be missed.
