Maintenance management has been an increasing concern among many types of companies. This is especially true of companies that rely on a lot of machinery such as trucks and loaders, and those who have busy production lines. In fact, it’s such an important issue that many companies have created the position of maintenance management supervisor.

Having one person in charge of maintenance management offers several benefits. You have someone whose sole purpose is overseeing the maintenance of equipment, facilities, and personnel--instead of one or several people attempting to fit maintenance into their busy work day. A maintenance management supervisor is the authority on whatever system you choose to implement, be it on paper or computerized.

Having a maintenance management supervisor can be especially useful if you are planning to use a Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) solution. They don’t have to try to make time to learn the software, while also handling other projects--knowing the software is their job, so they can attend classes or thoroughly investigate the tutorial. Once your supervisor is fully versed in your system, they can teach other employees how best to utilize it. This is convenient if you don’t have the funds--or time--to send several employees out to train with your software purveyor.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s--Supervisor!

Your maintenance management supervisor can be the hero of the company. If repairs and other events are handled smoothly and efficiently, your business’ productivity can go up--while expenses go down. Having an “expert” on your team can make maintenance headaches a thing of the past.
