What is a CMMS?

A CMMS, short for Computerized Maintenance Management System, manages and automates the daily tasks necessary to operate a maintenance department. A CMMS is also sometimes referred to as EAM (Enterprise Asset Management) because one of the primary features of a CMMS is the ability to track and record data on assets including the location, repair history, and operating status of those assets.

Today, CMMSs are implemented in organizations all over the world but they were first introduced in the 1960’s. Like most computer systems at the time they were based on a punch card system. Nowadays, CMMSs are hosted via an internet connection and are typically utilized in the form of SaaS (Software as a Service). SaaS allows a CMMS to be accessed from any device with an internet connection. An on-site maintenance technician has all the data he needs, right at his fingertips.

As we move into Industry 4.0, organizations are better equipped to understand the value of preventative maintenance and data-driven decisions but the value of a Computerized Maintenance Management System goes much deeper than that.
