Field Service Management (FSM)

Field service management (FSM) software is a set of functionalities for organizations or departments within organizations that have as main focus the intallation, maintanance, reparing, and meter reading for industries relying heaviling on equipment. FSM workers require functionality for customer engagement management, service and asset management as well as workforce management. Since most activities in FSM take place outside of the office, mobility is a big component of the a FSM software solutions. Typically, FSM software is not used as a stand-alone solution, as it needs to integrate with Financials, ERP, CRM and EAM to ensure accurate data exchange. Even if its main purpose is to maintain and repair equipment, it can also be used to gather customer satisfaction and equipment performance feedback. To allocate human resources efficiently, workforce management is an integral part of an FSM system.

Use a Computerized Maintenance Management System to Improve Predictive Maintenance Performance


Companies that have moved from a highly reactive environment to a more planned one notice significant improvement. A computer maintenance management or enterprise asset management system is useful tool to create a planned environment, help build accurate equipment history, and develop comprehensive analysis capability.

Continuous Improvement Offers CMMS Maintenance Benefits


Computer maintenance management system (CMMS) packages are excellent tools for collecting, analyzing, and reporting data and can offer insight into a process’ problem. Critical success factors for the effective use for the CMMS involves clear support from management and measurable drivers involving time, quality, and cost.

Secondly, the planner should only issue the work-order when all of the parts are in and kitted. Equipment must also be available from operations. Also, moving resources closer to the action can reduce cycle-time. For example, the CMMS may show that one area of operations has occupied a full-time mechanic consistently over the past year or more. If so, perhaps there might be potential to reduce cycle-time Read More
