Equipment Failure Tracking Software, OEE and Reporting

equipment failure tracking software

OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) tracks equipment Availability, Performance and Quality.

Equipment failure tracking software guides the maintenance manager to real money-saving solutions including military standard reliability analysis, OLAP data cubes (online analytical processing), OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) and  SQL query analysis.

This equipment failure tracking software system analyzes, charts and reports on equipment failure or down time (equipment failure analysis). There are several reports available for reporting equipment failures. All data from the equipment failure screen may be exported to Excel or OLAP (online analytical processing) for further processing and analysis. Like most of the screens in MaintSmart CMMS Software there are only a couple of required fields. This make it possible to enter a simple down time record quickly and come back later to edit it with additional information later as needed.

The Equipment Failure (equipment down time) Tracking in the MaintSmart CMMS Software screen (down time analysis) provides four more ways to analyze equipment failure data by building the exact query you need for the situation. After this data set has been returned you may then link the data set to the OLAP component and analyze it even further. Either of these data sets may be imported to Excel with a couple button clicks.

A corresponding work order may be optionally created when entering equipment failure record. This work order task may then be automatically associated with the failure cause for this down time instance and later used automatically to generate a work order with no user input. Later work orders associated with equipment failure can be accessed to see what work was performed to correct this equipment breakdown. MaintSmart utilizes powerful OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness).

Equipment Failure (down time) Tracking Methods

  • Down time (equipment failures) is tracked three ways – Time To Repair, Time Down, and Impact. Impact is an opportunity cost that may be used however you want.
  • Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) – Uses availability, quality and performance. These three KPI are rolled into one value and charted.
  • Reliability analysis MaintSmart CMMS software is the only CMMS system that integrated AMSAA military standard reliability analysis into the software. This analysis tool will guide you to optimized preventive maintenance task lists using MTBF (mean time between failure) and increasing or decreasing failure rate.
  • Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) – Uses availability, quality and performance. These three KPI are rolled into one value and charted.
  • Equipment Failure Report – exports directly to an Excel chart – and comprehensive maintenance-related statistics.

 Reliability Analysis

Reliability analysis may be used to determine Failure Rate and Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF). MaintSmart CMMS even integrates the MTBF component of the reliability analysis into the preventative maintenance system to guide the maintenance manager to setting the correct PM task intervals to circumvent failures. No other CMMS software does this.
